In finding that Ron Northey, pudgy St. Louia outfielder, had indeed bee'.l prevented from scoring an inside-the-park home run In the ninth inning by the action of Umpire Eeans Rear-don In telling him to "alow down," the league president said he was basing hi decision on "fairness, common sense and sportsmanship." After carefully stating both sides of the argument, Frick said he would ordt.r tre game placed in the records as having been a 3-3 tie, with the individual records of the players to stand except that no pitcher will be accorded a win or a defeat.

The decision lopped one game off Brooklyn's "win" column in th" standing and subtracted a loss from the Card's record. Qoing in today's games, the Cards thus were tied with the Bo. ton Braves for second place, five and one-half games behind the league leading Dodgers. When the disputed play arose, the Cardinals were leading Brooklyn 2-0 in the first of the ninth. Northey whacked a towering fly into deep cen-terfleld that hit on top of a railing jin front of the boxes, bounced high in the air and fell back into the playing field. Reardon, umpiring at third, thought the ball had gone into the stands, and when Northey came winging to third he told him to take it easy. Northey put on the brakes, and by the time he awakened to the true situation it was too late. On a fast relay he was thrown out at the plate. The Dodgers, quick to show their appreciation of Reardon's action, poured across three runs in their ha'f of the Inning to take the decision that is. temporarily. Today Frick said he didn't know why in the world the three umpires didn't get together at the time of the mix-up, admit that a mistake had been made, and award Northey his Reardon, he aald, had a ti l-Batted for Wrisht in eighth.

Los Angeles promoter, said today he had offered Rocky Graziano, newly crowned middleweight champion, 940.000 to defc-.d his title against Bernard Docusen or New Orleans, in Wrigley Field, Lo Angeles, on Sept. 13. Docusen, up to now a welterweight, was offered 915,000 and has accepted the offer, McCoy added. Chances that Graziano would accept appeared slim here although his manager, Irving Cohen, could not be reached. It was pointed out that Graziano agreed to give Tony Zale of Gary, Ind.. from whom he won the title on July 16. a chance to regain the crown within 90 days. McCoy said he thought the bout would draw 9200.000 in Los Angeles and that Graziano had been given an offer of 940.000 or 40 per cent of the gate. Belt Cannot Be Civen Graziano in N. Y.

Harry Voiler, Miami Beach hotel owner and fight promoter, has offered Mlddle- weight Champion Rocky Graziano a (guarantee of 9150,000 to defend his title against Tony Zale In Miami, Fla., next February, with a 975.000 guarantee to go to Zale. The offer, received here by wire, explained that $50,000 would be paid to Graziano and 925,000 to Zale when they sign the contract and that the balance would he given to both fighters 48 hours before the bout. Voiler explained it would be a charity show with "nothing for the promoter." Irving Cohen, Grazlano's manager, wired Voiler that he would consider the offer. "An offer of this size you have to consider," he said. Cohen said he and Graziano do not expect to appear before the New York State Athletic commission to apply for the return of Grazlano's license to box In this state until next September. Grazlano's license was revoked last January for failure to report a $100,-000 bribe offer for a fight which never came off. Licensing for the 1948 period begins Oct. 1. Cohen explained that It was very doubtful that Graziano would de- jfend the title he won two weeks ago by knocking out Zale in Chicago this year, unless Zale should request a return match before next January. The Chicago fight, in which the title changed hands, was the second between Graziano and Zale. The first, last September in New York, ended In a six-round knockout Victory for Zale. When they signed for their second 1 bout, the contract included a stipu lation for a return bout to be signed for within 90 days after th second fight. Cohen said Graziano probably would have one over-weight non-title fight this year and then risk his title against Zale early next year. The non-title affair probably will be in October or November, depending on Grazlano's recovery from hurts received in the last Zale bout. One of the reasons for the delay until next year, of course, is the Income tax status of both fighters. Zale received about 9140,000 for the Chicago fight in which he lost the title and Graziano was paid about 970,000 in winning the championship.

Bailey said that the Natchitoches officials, immediately after the second game, had offered him a guarantee of $100 and all expense to play the last game In Natchitoches, but that he had refused the offer. After receiving the ' protest from the Natchitoches team, Martlnea contacted Bert Kouns, fourth district chairman for American Legion baseball, late Thursday night, and told him that he would rule on the request yesterday. He Informed Kouns by telegram yesterday morning that the game would have to be played in Minden. Bailey said last night that Commissioner Martinez, violated the rules of the American Leglou Junior Baae-ball league when he failed to be present at the meeting or to have his representative there when the schedule for the sectional playoff was arranged. "We had a perfect agreement on where the three games were to be played," Bailey said. "The dates and places were advertised In advance. We did not present the written agreement to Commissioner Martinez because neither he nor his representative was present. We did the thing that we had done before arrange the dates and places of the games." In asking that the contest be awarded to the Bluebyrds, and protesting the ruling. Bert Kouns. fourth district chairman, sent the following telegram to Commissioner Martinez: "Although denying that you have the right or cause for your act In ordering a game to be played at Minden on Saturday which waa originally agreed upon and scheduled to be played in Shreveport Friday the Andress Bluebyrds will comply with your order under protest, while at same time claiming forfeiture of Friday's scheduled game, under the rules of baseball due to failure of Natchitoches to appear for Friday' scheduled game. "Formal claim of the forfeiture and protest against having to comply with your arbitrary, unwarranted and unprecedented order is being prepared and forwarded to you by the Lowe-McFarlane Post No. 14. Bailey also said that he told Natchitoches officials In Natchitoches Wednesday after they had objected to the crowd at the local park that he would request both the recreation department officials and Public Safety Commissioner A. B. "Kotton" Morris to have ample police protection to keep the crowd from getting on to the infield. Don Harbuck, who won the first game for the Bluebyrds, will take the mound In today's game, Bailey said. Recreation Head Says Local Field 'One of Finest' (Continued From Preceding Pate) bleachers were set up tor the game, which you will see in the fourth picture enclosed and ropes set up 10 yards or more from foul lines and a crew was on hand to keep everyone back from the lines. For your information, I feel it proper for me to point out that while a written agreement was not made between the representatives of the district chairmen concerning this series, an oral agreement to play the first and third games here at Betty Virginia park and the second at Natchitoches was made in the presence of witnesses, including Judge James IT. Galloway of the local district court, and others of comparably unquestionable repute, and that two-thirds of this agreement was cheerfully carried out by both parties two of the three games and only after the neoond game was played waa any protest as to Betty Virginia park made, I think I am fully Justified in stating that any inference that this park Is Inferior to, or even no better than, any similar park in any Central or North Louisiana, city simply cannot be substantiated in any way before any impartial Judge or Jury.
