Why do people flock to base
ball games, anyway? Tbenswer
Is easy. Because a baseball game
is a battle If it's a real bail
game. Here's a good opportnnty
to remark that Olinger field, Sa
lem's new ball park, helps the
fans enjoy the game, because it
is so arranged that they can see
what Is going on. They can tell
what the pitcher is throwing, and
those who get there early and sit
directly behind the plate, can tell
jnst as well as the umpire, wheth
er they are balls or strikes.
That's a fine opportunity for
the well known "wolves", but they
are reaprag disappointment In an
other respect. The Olinger field
diamond isn't so chummy with
the grandstand as was the old one
at Oxford park, and personal re
marks directed at luckless play
era don't reach the mark. They
are lost in space.
Baseball Is'ow Less
Game of Chance
Luck, too, is minimised in ths
new park, for there aren't any
home runs and two baggers fading
out -of sight beyond a fence. A
hit at Olinger field is one of two
things; a ball hit so squarely that
it goes through or just over the
Infield, or a fly ball that travels
too far for the out-fielders to
If fans patronize baseball be
cause it's a spectacle full of fight
and suspense, the attendance at
today's game between the Senators
and the Alcos ought to break all
records, for no two cities erer en
tered into the game with such
bitter rivalry as Salem and Al
bany. In this particular game,
there is an added incentive. In
that one or the other Is due to
climb out of the cellar though
the fact that they are here, spells
little so early in the season.
"Red" Rupert will be on hand
to instill extra life into his squad
of ex-Coast leaguers and lively
youngsters, and he may throw
out a little for the fans, too it's
been known to happen. "Frisco"
Edwards is busier, but he always
has a little pepper left with which
to coi .e back at Rupert. If the
game is close, it may be a bad
day for umpires.
