Few Players To Be Drafted Chandler Says CINCINNATI, Nov. 17. W) _ Commissioner A. B. (Happy) chandler, who will supervise baseball's major league draft today, predicted not more than 15 minor loop .players would be selected In the annual grab bag. 'I took a look at that list of diaft ellglbles," the boss of baseball declared, "and there must be 10.000 names on St. But probably no more than 15 will be drafted." All major league clubs were to oe represented al the draft this morn- Ing. Commissioner Chandler was up late last night helping recodify and simplify Ihe baseball rules. The 12- ma.rt board has \vnded through 34 pages of a 66-page revised code, and li a s made several important changes. Some of the ancient rules have gone by the board:-, in 'early sessions, and some which folks thought were in the rule book have been put there for Ihe first time. For Instance: the first statement n. the "objectives of the game" sector 'stipulate* that "the object of each^team Is to win by scoring the nore runs." That highly-important Item was not in the old code. Another rule which for almost a century has permitted the home ieam manager to decide whether his team should bat first or Itist was erased. Under the new regulation !he home team bats last, Another far-reaching decision wns Lhat a manager desiring to protcsl a game, over an umpire's decision must do so before nlny Is resumed. Under present American League rules such a protest may be made anytime before the club leaves the field, while in the national a protest may be lodged anytime within 24 hours after the contest.
