By ' Harry Gray son DETROIT, Aug. 4.—Ball playe.. of today may have just as mud natural ability as those of 2 years ago, but they don't play tin game up lo the hilt. The age o hustling seems to have passed. "When I was managing in th minor leagues, I used to tell th .boys that if they did not run on batted balls, or If they missed i lilt and run signal, thev neve would be acceplcd In Ihe bl Ehow," says Del Baker, bcssin the Detroit ...Tigers during Mickc Cochrane's absence. '"They won't tolerate that kliv of stuff up there.' I told them, believed that I knew '.vhat I \va talking about because I rcmem tered having seen players flnei reprimanded, and released fo missing' a signal or loafing on th way to first. "You can imagine my s«rprls< when I came back as a coach 1 1933, to see how lax big leaguei had become. Now they miss sig .nils'every day and do all maime of loafing without anything be Ing said about it. It's all tak as part of .the game." Outfielders No Longer Back Up Plays Baker also finds a difference fielding .alertness between 1D1 when he caught for the Tigei and the sluggish and of ten-Urn .bpresonie present. "I recall seeing a play at Fei way Park, Boston, that never hap pens any more," asserts the Or gon farmer who Is" expected permanently succeed the Incapac lalcd Cochrane ; as field marsli of the Navln Field forces In 19: "Oscar Vltt, then playing thi base for the Tigers, was "did base .with Ty Cobb at ba Ty faked a bunt to draw In Lar Oardnrr, the Red Sox third bas an, and make !t easier for Vltt .steal.

V!lt, of ourse, died to score, but Duffy cwls. ploying left field, picked i the ball mid threw him out the pinto. 'In. those days outfielders back- I up every play.
