FRENCH SOON BECOME REAL BASEBALL FANS As Enthusiastic Over Hit for Three Bases as for Boot H«v« Net teamed That Most Danger- ou* Plat* to Stand, and Watch I* Behind . Bit--Blfl Entertain. . ment for the Strollers. Are tjie French people baseball f«ns? 00 1» 1»; anyone .who was out on the Bots de Boulogne on a recent Sunday and law the thousands of excited Purl- ·tana · crowding aronnd the' two baseball diamonds wonld answer that question "Oui.r Tie games were staged between the Medical Department Bepalr STiop-No. 1 and the Searchlight Division, on one diamond and the Red Cross drivers and T. M. C. A. nine on another.; Bnt the fans didn't know who was playing-nor did they care, says Stars and Stripes. Whenever someone cracked not « blnger for three bags, a cborns «f whatever is French for "Atta boy!" rose from the crowd. And whenever the shortstop made a boot and let the ball get through to left acid. Die tans liked it just as well as 11 be'd made the assist. And the Paris games are the first in history where the nmpiro has n chance'with the bleachers. The reason Is that they dont know what or why or wherefore Is the umpire. And .the umpires, to date, aren't giving interviews to tto Paris dallies eiplaln- · Ing the duties of their positions. But these new friends of our national game must learn that the woret ^place to stand while watching a gnme 'Is behind the catcher. In the recent games they were crowded wifhfn two feet of the plate and It -was imnossl- 'ble to keep them bncfc. "C'est dnnser- eni!" an American -would yell at them. "Ah, cml," they agreed and moved back all at two inches. Those games tan for only flve innings, and within that time there were several casualties. "When a fonl came screaming over their bends, they langh- ed; when the catcher let a bad one pass tapped a fan on the head, everybody came back for more. There are bound to be some serious Injuries when the lencue opens if provisions are not made to beep the enthusiasts from acting as backstops. Aa a baseball game it wouldn't have got very many' paragraphs on a home sporting page, bnt as rjitertaln- ment for the strollers to Boise de Bon- logoVlt was a world beater. SATlOXAIi LEAGUE. · . .
