The prospective batting of th fill-likens of th 1111 season, may be anticipated as very satisfactory. Judging from th record shown la th few practice game played during th spring training. Four player In th regular llnaun. said from th hurler. bar put up average of over .loi, and two of in have percentage above th .401 mark. McKlveen baa led the BUltken sauad la (watting. In th six gam in which he ha performed, the third baseman ha been at bat twenty. three ume ana ha registered ten bits, which, when computed, make a batting average of .411. William ha, not been far behind McKlveen. The new outfielder In six game, ha been at bat twenty-three times, ana secured seven ear bit, which how an average of .104. "Happy" Smith ha not had much opportunity ao far thla spring, but in in two game in which h played he wa up five time and swatted twice. an average of .400, John Dobba appeared in only en game, and hit one out of three time up, an average of .111. , Following the player. Manning, Ware and Stengl seera to have their eye on th ball. In th six gams played by each of them (twe of Wares' game being wttk th St. Louis brown) the three player have shown that they are, potentially speaking, premier hlttara Manning atung th ball six time out of twenty-two time up. averaging .271. Ware also hit safe half a doaea times out of twnly-thre time up. and his average 1 .211, while Stengl connected for hit seven times, out of twenty-four time at bat, and mad th average f .211. . j For spring work, especially considering th condition of th weather, rain, eold, raw winds, and a world of other handicap, th records of th players Is considered by expert authorities a being far above th average. . Viewing th situation in reference to batting. It can be affirmed that th BUUken will undoubtedly be a hard bitting bunch, Th above half dosen player have already exhibited signs of proper ability to wat th ball, but when it "is taken Into consideration that there arc other heavy hitters, for Instance. Danslg. Elwert and Oribbens still left to form a blngllng crew, there need be no fear that th BUUken will be able to entertain any of the hurler of th other clubs of th league during th season of 1212.
