BASE BALL GAMES
ON BATTLE FRONT
Canadians Will Challenge
Americans in Diamond Con
tests Played in New
World War League.
(From a Staff Correspondent of The Asso
elated Press.)
British Headquarters in France,
May 28 (Via London), May 29.-The
old adage ot all work and no play
has its application in war as well as in
peace.
The base ball season on the weitern
front is in full swing. Under the very
shadow of Vimy ridge a great game
was played yesterday before an all
khaki audience in a rough grandstand
erected for the officers and other spec
tators, including General Home, com
manding the First British army, who
Has become an enthusiastic tan.
The eame was between teams rep
resenting two Canadian brigades, in
tact all the teams in what may be
called the World War league are now
composed ot representatives ot the
numerous Canadian bodies and all the
players are anxiously awaiting the ar
rival ot the American forces to ar
range (or an interleague series.
ihe becond Canadian brigade beat
the Third by the score of 7 to 1. The
Second brigade had 'a great left
handed pitcher whose delivery the
Third brigade batters could not solve
at all. The Third brigade team also
had a good boxman, who formerly
played with uttawa in the Canadian
league. The catcher was unable to
hold his delivery well and this fault
accounted for many of the runs scored
by the winning side.
xne game was remarnaDiy tree
from errors, considering the battle
field diamond on which it was played.
All the equipment had been brought
from America, including the base
bags, 1
As a side show It was possible from
th grandstand to see an occasional
German shell dropping half a mile or
so away. Airplanes were humming
overhead, but, assuming them to be
friendly, no one looked their way ex
cept when a fly ball happened to be
bit. ' .
There was a typical rooting by the
Canadians and Americans among the
khaki-clad spectators and much wag
ering on the game. One subaltern
bet enough, he said, to pay his ex
penses on a three weeki' leave in
Paris, but he chose the wrong side
and his leave was indefinitely post
pone:!. The games are played twice a week
ir this strangest of all base ball
leagues.

Chance at Leonard
. Milwaukee, Wis., May 29. Richie
Mitchell, Milwaukee lightweight

nard recently scored a knockout over

when the gong for the ninth round
sounded.
Leonard, fresh) as the moment he
had entered the ring, jumped forward
and met the champion as he was
leaving his corner and delivered a
shower of lefts and rights to the face
and head.
Gets Smashing Right,
Welsh, vainly trying to ward off
the blows, worked his way into Leon
ard's corner, where Leonard suc
ceeded in reaching; him with a smash
ing right to the jaw. Welsh fell on
cue knee and hugged the ropes, ,
His strength gone, he strove weakly
to strike a fighting pose. As he left
the ropes Leonard landed and Welsh
hit the floor. He struggled to his
feet twice more, but each time he
was met by Leonard's rights to the
face and head and again he fell to
the floor.
The champion took the count of
nine before he arose from the last
knock down. He tried to stand, but
fell across the ropes.
It was only a question of moments
when he would have fallen and been
counted out. At this point Referee
McPartland leaped between the two
men and pushing Leonard away car
ried the defeated champion to his
corner
A score of men occupying ringside
seats jumped into the ring and, lift
ing the new champion to their shoul
ders, carried him in triumphal pro
cession around the hall.
While the crowd was cheering itself
hoarse. Welsh sat in a daze in his
corner. When he had recovered some
what and was told by his handlers of
his defeat he refused to believe them
and fought fiercely to return to the
center of the ring.
It was Leonard'! fight throughout.
He took the offensive in the first
round and held it until the end.
There was never a moment when he
was in danger and although the cham
pion fought valiantly and succeeded
in landing many blows, they appeared
to have little effect Welsh seemed
to have lost his judgment of distance
for he missed repeatedly.
Leonard Fights From Stsrt.
From the first gong Leonard tore
into the champion with ruthless per
sistency. He rained lefts snd rights
to the fsce and head tt will. Welsh,
disconcerted by his opponents tac
tics, seemed worried when the round
ended.
In all of the succeeding rounds
Leonsrd concentrsted his efforts on
Welsh's body snd succeeded in whip
ping his right repeatedly to the cham
p'on's stomach. It was this blow, per
sistently used, that wore the cham
pion down. ,
Leonard weighed in at 144 pounds;
Welsh at 136".
Freddie Welsh won the world's
lightweight championship by receiv
ing the referee's decision after out
Loxing Willie Ritchie, the American
title holder, in a twenty-round bout
in London, July 7, 1914. Previous to
tonight's contest, Leonsrd and Welsh
met twice in no decision ten-round
bouts.
Leonard was born In New York
City in 1896. His recent knockout
of Ritchie Mitchell of Milwaukee
caused him to be regarded as a con
tender for the world's title.
Leonard, the new world's champion
lightweight, wlli not "wait for con
scription," but will enlist in the U.
