BILLY EVANS SOLVES BASEBALL PROBLEMS
(Written Especially for This Paper by the Famous American
Several years ago a play came up In one of the minor laaguet that
created considerable dlscoaalon. Similar plays have come up in both
Mg leagues, but the same ruling has always been
adhered to. despite the argument created by the
minor-league happening. Koth sides of the ques-
tion have been thoroughly threshed out many times,
yet there are still some doubtful ones. Recently. I
saw the question brought up before a sporting
weekly that answer* all such arguments. The
editor. In enswerlng the question, took the opposite
ruling to that In vogue In both big leagues, stated
so in his answer, and insists that he is In the right,
all opinions to the contrary notwithstanding.
In the minor league game In question, wj^h one
man out In the last half of the ninth, the home
team needed three runs to win and two to tie. With
men on first and third, the batter hit a sharp single
to left field, which was played badly by the outfielder, the ball getting
away from him and rolling to the fence. All three men scored on the
play, and It seemed that the home team had won the game. As the
batter crossed the plate the crowd began to surge on the flild.
It so happened that the man on first, when the hit was made,
failed to touch third base. The mistake was noticed by the third
baseman and also the umpire. When the ball was thrown In by the
left fielder, the third bowman received It and touched third base. The
umpire thereupon declared out the man originally on first who had
failed to touch that base. That, of course, cut off a run. A large
portion of the crowd was on the field at the time.
The captain of the team In the field then raised another angle. He
Insisted that since the batter had technically passed the runner ahead
of him, because that runner had failed to touch third, he should also
be declared out and that run also rendered void. The umpire allowed
the claim. Thus, the team last at bat believed it had won the game
by a run. while the captain of the visiting team left believing that he
had won by the same margin. What would have been the proper
Answer to Problem.
Major league umpires, and practically all minor league officials,
have a uniform ruling on this play. Had It come up In the big league,
the runner who had failed to touch third would, of course, have been
called oot. The run scored by the batter would have been allowed.
No attention would have been paid to the technicality that since the
batter touched third base and the other player did not, the former had
technically passed the latter on the lines. The opUilon Is held that
It would be decidedly unjust to punish a runner who has complied with
all the rules simply because the preceding runner has violated one of
the laws of baseball. Thus, neither team would have been the winner,
the score would have been a tie, and the team at bat still had an out
coming to them.
