better fielder, but Fries makea up for
his slowness by bis hitting.
The break of luck haa been against
the Colts In one or two of their

(Third ef a series of article oa tha Intrl
eaclee of Baseball.)
"To err le human; to forgive dlrln"
Is not a good baseball maxim, for If
the average baseball fan had his say
there would ba mora errors chalked up
In every game than aafe hits. The
average patron of the park haa a fool
ish notion chucked away In tha back
of his brain that any time a fielder
goto his hands on the ball and misses
the plsy It Is an error; and Inversely
that no man can be charged with an
error who doea not get his hands on
the ball.
The rules, themselves, prescribe the
bam hit and error limitations and noth
ing could be farther from the truth.
No greater mlatake could be made than
to let thla false doctrine Influence re
sults. If. every time a fielder made a
sensstlonal try and missed, he waa
credited with an error, the number of
such brilliant trye would be minimised.
The Vniea provide:
"When a fair hit ball la partially or
wholly stopped by a fielder In motion
but such pieyef rsnnot recover Mmaelf
In time to field the ball to rirst csss
before the striker reaches first or to
force out another base runner credit a
base hit."
"When the bill from the bat strikes
the ground on or within the foul lines
and out of reach of the fielders credit
a, base hit.
Fallacy la Dissipated.
The aecond section above dissipates
the "no touch, no error" fallacy, for
the rules plainly state "out of reach"
of the fielder. Many times, especially
In amateur games, the ball bounds
squarely to the waiting fielder who
misjudges the hops and does not "get
his hands on the ball." t'nless sn In
equality of tha turf causes It to be de
flected so that human hands could not
be expected to Insurs perfect handling,
an error le charged.
In the rase of a ball too hot to han
dle, base hits are generally given pref
erence over errors for "a mechanical
failure to make an assist or a putout"
should be the governing principle. In
other words if a fielder misses a play
on which he would have been roundly
applauded the play waa no mechanical
one and tha batter Is given a aafe hit.
Fielders ars not there to make star
playa and tho man who Is stabbing at
Impossible stops Is entitled to the
Under ordinary clrcumatancea when
either an Inflelder or outfielder has
smple time to set himself for the ball
he gets an error for a mlscue. An out
fielder who gets one, or even both
handa on the ball when running at full
sneed and drone It should not be
charged with an error unless his fail
ure to get aet was due to glaring mis
Judgment. The words "In motion" In
the rules quoted above, provide for this.
One variety of doubtful hlte results
from the bunt or slow scratch. Hunts
usually call for more than ordinary
skill In handling and. up to the laat
few years, bringing development of in
field defensive play, scorers Invariably
credited all hunts which landed their
progenitors on first bsse as hits. Even
now the ftelden- Is entitled to lentesicy
on all bunta and quasl-hlts.
Take this aa a foundation: Credit a
base hit on 'bunts and scratches on
which he makes first unless the bsll
Is rolled directly at the fielder, ao as
to maka a fallurs to handle It a pal
pably poor play, even though a fum
ble or poor play Is made by the ftolder.
The slow scratch and the "too hard
to handle" hit both cropped up In
Wednesday's opening game. In the
fourth Inning, with Swain on second.
Miller grounded slowly to Bancroft,
who cams In like a shot and pegged
to first without a chance to straighten
up. His throw drew Rappa off the
bag, but Miller waa given a hit. Port
land's first tally reaulted when Burch
lined a terrific drive, squarely between
O'Rourks'l legs at second baae. Patsy
waa not given an error because the
ball traveled too fast to be Judgod.
Kaerptloaa ta Rale.
Precedent eatablishsd by major league
scorers governs several type of base
bits not covered In the rules. The
crooked bounder haa already been
pointed out, but tho ball that drops be
tween two outfielders or Inflelders
through a tnlxup is another of the
scratch variety that goes for a hit,
although "not out of reach ef tho
Tho high foul flies thst come whls
slng straight down are most difficult
to handle and these are generally over
looked by the experienced scorer.
Should an outfielder throw to a base
ta catch a runner and the ball bound
over tho receiving fielder's bead or go
wild or prove ao Iraperfeat In any man
ner aa to allow the ruaner to advanoa,
an additional base, the outfielder Is
given tho error. The tendency la to
give the receiving fielder the benefit
of a doubt for the reason that he tas
many mora ehanoea to err than the man
la the pasturea.
A base hit la given the batsman when
a batted ball hits a baaerunner. The
runner la automatically out. If the
ball hits the umpire the batter gets a
Hits Sense I fa Psjaallag.
Tha batsman la entitled to only as
many basea as he can get before the
opponents can gwt the ball there, pro
vided they make the play on him with
out error. A man may make three
bases on a hit that la only a two
bagger, because tbe plsy. la made on
another man at the plate. Tho proper
differentiation between the hit and the
throw-In Is sometlmea pustllng.
And finally, remember thla peculiar
quirk In tha ralea: should a tls game
ba brought ta close by a hit, that hit
can be no longer than technically need
ed to win the game. For inatancs. If
the batter hlta aa ordinary horns run
with a man on aecond baae, his homer
goes for only two basea. for a two
bagger would have done the winning
