BARKER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, Feb. 4. UP)--Major league batsmen who slugged 1,566 balls over the fences or into the bleachers last season, · will · have a new and "deader" ball to swing at this .year. Both the National and American leagues have decided that the home- run barrage" has gone far enough and a change in the ball's physical aspects is the result. To Have Thicker Cover. In the National league, the ball will have a thicker cover and heavier stitches. In the American league, the cover will be about the same but the stitches will be heavier. Not only will these changes take some of the liveliness out of the ball, major league 'officials .confidently expect,,but also will give the pitchers a better grip on the bail and thereby increase their effectiveness. The pitchers, .hampered continuously by all sorts of restrictions, have ..complained for several -year* that the smoothness of the ball's cover has made it extremely difficult to control. The thicker stitches planned on the 1931 ball should go far toward solving that difficulty. May Bfake Little Change. Proponents of the lively ball anr] the frequent homerun need have little fear that these changes in the ball's construction will bring about a return to the days when a dozen homeruns were good enough to win a league championship. The changes are not drastic enough for any .radical recrease in hitting. Officials of Both leagues do believe,'however, that the .changed ·ball'will-TeauVt In-'greater pitching efficiency, decrease in the number of "trick" homeruns hit and a slump in the inflated averages o£ the last few years.
