POLITE GAME OF BASEBALL
Old Baltimore . and Boston Team'
Triad to Play Courteous Game
Agreement Soon Forgotten.
"You can try to refine and civilize
baseball all you want," remarked Joe
Kelley, the present Toronto manager
!who was once an Oriole star, "and you
can make a parlor game out of it by
giving the umpires power of life and
leath, but you can't kill oft the players'
tongues unless you stun 'em with an
ax.' Baseball can be made a gentle
manly game, all right, but you can't
get the Lord Chesterfield stuff Into it,
no matter how much the writers and'
magnates talk, about its progress to
ward perfection. Nothing doing. The
public can't hear the line of talk that
till goes on, and it's just as well the
public Is out of rubbering range.
"Tears and years ago, I well remem
ber, two ball clubs tried to pull a
polite and oourteoua ball game. Just to
see how the thing would work. The
old Baltimores and the old Bostons
which were real ball clubs, both of
them, held a conference one. after
noon. There had been a lot of talk
and newspaper criticism about rough
house work and bad language, and we
wanted to show press and public that!
we could be rood, decent people, after.
all. We agreed to try out the polish
ed conversation and the golden rule,
Stuff for this one occasion, and Tim!
Hurst, who was slated to umpire,'
agreed to help the good work along. It
would be some conversion, too, be
lieve me, if we could get Tim Hurst
tnto the parlor process for Tim was
never built for cotillon lines.
"The first half-inning went by some
thing lovely. Even when Tim called a
strike on Tom McCarthy that was a
foot over his head, there was no out
break. Says Tom, very gently, Wasn't
that ball a trifle high, Mr. Umpirer
and says, Tim, all courtesy, 1 fear 1
. pay have erred in Judgment, Mr. Mc
Carthy. Kindly overlook It, If you
will.' And in our half, when Jack
poyle went down to second In a cloud
of dust, and Tim said 'Out,' Jack jump
ed up, red in the face, yelled 'What the
, ' and caught himself in time. 'Par
don me,' says Jack, 'but I honestly
thought that Mr. Long failed to
touch me!' And says Herman Long,
equally polite, 1 am under the impres
sion that I did touch Mr. Doyle.' Just
as nice and Chesterfleldish as you
could read In a book of etiquette.
"And in the very next Inning the
blow-off came. Three on and twoj gone,
with Hughey Jennings batting. Relts
made a dash for home on what he
thought was a passed ball. The Boston
catcher recovered it, but as he dove for
the putout Jennings wandered against
him and knocked him ten feet away.
'Out for the interference!' yelled Hurst
and then everybody arrived at the
plate in a bunch.
" 'You Irish loafer, shrieked Reitx,
'what am I out forr 'You red-headed
stiff,' roared the Boston catcher at Jen
