Evening Post: Have you heard of Connie Mack's "double dash steal?" The baseball season of 1914 may not bp productive of 'the richest financial results cvfr enjoyed--hut much improvement iia." 1'cen made, especially in has-; r u n n i n g . . Connie jr.-."k. manaser of the Athletics, c o n t i n u e s to srring new plays antl his -world champions are forever attempting something new and utart- llng in the old same. KEVOLUTIONIZING SPORT. Tho Athletics are slowly but surely revolutionizing the s?ort so far as lightning speed and electrlfyinsc plays are concerned, nntl when he popped his new double 'lush -.riueejo piny, with men on second and thirfl. the wise birds shook t'irlr heads, m u t t e r i n g "It can't be done." But Mack seldom starts a play that cannot he perfected. In the new squeeze, the opposition IF often thrown off Its J-alnnc», so jmlrVnly is the speerlv trick -.primp W i t h a man on second and a n o t h e r on third and either none or one out, the signal Is tipped and the batter taps of! a bunt. On the tip of the f i u n n l both base runners dash off like w US and tnr a few seconds the spectators ars bewildered as everybody seems to be running and Jumping about. BATTER MUST DELIVER. The man at bat must not illp up on his end of the new saueeze. He must connect for a slow roller, and than-swish--they are off in a bunch. The man on third Is speeding for the plate and the pitcher or whoever fields the ball pegs home to catch the man. Sometimes they catch him and again they fall. But, whether or not that man Is nipped, there is another runner beating the path directly behind him and that man has his orders. He must slide into the plate on the opposite side from which the catcher is working on his teammate, and seldom does this play fall to score at least one of the runs. Otto Knabe, former Philadelphia National second baseman, who now manages the Baltimore Federal leasrue club, has adopted the new double dash play and his Terrapins are getting away with it. In the recent Baltimore- Bun aeries at "WeeElham park the Baltimore club successfully completed the the play, both runners registering tallies. However, instances when both men succeed in scoring are rare. Indeed. coin and. Kankakee dropped out. Champaign being awarded the pennant. The Iciur remaining teams started out on a new schedule Friday. Fed« Drnrrtntf Poorly. Chief Kahl is in receipt of » letter from Hank Keupper, brother of Hubert, who is now chief porteider for the Terriers In Salntlooie. Hank says the Feds aren't drawing enough to pay ground expenses In most of the cities u nd he declares the league to be In a lad way financially. Small wonder the little fellowB are belns pinched if the "third major" oan't Tnakw expenses. l,uca» Sold to Peorla. A deal was closed yesterday by which outfielder Scott Lucas of Eloomington was sold to Peorla. Man- us:er Rowland has had his eye on the collegian for some tlm« and will prob ably use him In center field. As he lias been on the utility Hat with Bloom ington since Craig was s lned, he can be spared by the Bloomers. Trying «o Fool Public. Davenport Times.--Rowland's sy«' tsm of hiding the catcher's signals when there is a runner on second base becoming chronic. Mr. Rowland probably copped that trick last summer when he was out to battlntf practice -it the Sox park on a couple of oc raaions with Hy Jasper. Catcher Jacobs saw the Peoria club pull It and he thought It was a good one. He accordingly used it in all four games here of Hie Springfield series. His pitchers spent most of their time on first base trying- to find out what to NEWS AND GOSSIP OF THREE-I PLAYERS eg next. It's one way of tooling the ubllc into believing that the pitcher has something on the bell. ATTENDANCE~ONLY 12,133 AT DANVILLE Danville Commerclal-Newa--Dan O' Leary had the right dope when he said that conducting a ball club In Danville was a tough proposition. Up to date the attendance at the local park has been but 12,132, indicating that the attendance for the season will not BO over 80,000. The amount taken In, both at the gate and grand stand during the season, up to date, is only J4,159. Approximately $4,500 has ti*en paid out in salaries. The guarantee to visiting cluba totals about $1,900. With incidental expenses, the total -cost of conducting the ball club so far this season has been close to $7,600, leaving a defHct pf more than $3,000. WILL NOW^WORK FOR HIS SALARY St. Louis, Mo., July 4.--Honorable Kenneth Nash, member of the Massachusetts legislature, will icln the Cardinals here Saturday. He was drafted from Waterbury, Conn., last fall. Soon afterward he was elected to the assembly, which adjourned only a few dayg ago. Manager Hugglns allowed him to keep his campaign pledge that he would not play ball until the session adjourned. Nash kept in form as an Infielder by playing semi-pro ball around the Hub city. Sends Message to Boyle Danville. at Danville Commercial News: Al Tearney, head of the Three-I league, has thrown out Danville's protest against Decatur, Davenport and Peoria. President Tearney, in a letter to James Doyle, told Jimmy in no uncertain manner that he could go as far as he liked with the National association; that he (Tearney) is head of the league and that the only thing Boyle could do would be to break up the league. DAN NOT PIAYING? Tearney asserts that none of the clubs Is over. He states Dan O'Lenry Is not playing, forgetting thlt Dan caught three games here, and he al?o fails to Include Mulligan In the list of Davenport players. He also makes excuses for Decatur and Peoria. Heanwhile President Boyle has forwarded an official compHint to J. Farrell, secretary of the n a t i o n a l commission. The secretary has acknowledged the receipt ot the complaint and asserts action will be taken at once. Keep On Smoking Decatur Hand Made Cigars There are cigars that you will enjoy.
