Pittsburgh, . July 18. -- Manager Fred Clarke of the Pittsburgh National league club a n n o u n c e d today that he had protested yesterday's record- breaking 21 Inning game w i t h New York, which resulted in a victory for the Giants. Clarke bases his prptest on the action of Umpire Byron who declared Wakr.er out in the sixth I n n i n g when the shortstop crossed the home plate. BUNDY WIN MATCH The big question on the Decatuf streets Saturday wasn't who was golnc to be the next president or what they were going, to do with Huerta, but "What do you t h i n k of the deal?" It wasn't necessary to explain, because every one knew the deal meant was that In which Decatur got Shortstop Conger and Pitcher Holland from Q u i n c y and paid for them with outfielder Koy Scherer and $350, while Berkel was sold to Peoria for $200. SCHERER HARD HITTER. There were a great many arguments and many d i f f e r e n t opinions on th« deal. In losing Scherer, the Commodores part w i t h a mighty populae young player, a heavy sticker, touching the pill at at .307 clip, although In the last two weeks he had fallen to a b o u t .297. "Ziggy" was also a brilliant fielder spasmodically, making sensational plays that often cut off runs for opposing teams, but again loe. ing the ball at a critical moment. COXGER BEST IX LEAGUE. Conger, at f i e l d i n g , Is the sensation of the league, leading all the shortstops and covering- a w o n d e r f u l amount of t e r r i t o r y with m i g h t y few bobbles. On the other hand ho is weaker with the stick than Berkel, altfnugh It is thought that putting 1 him in with the slugging team of the league he may pick up. He fields much more brilliantly thaa Berkel, but just whether he will taka his piece as well in the "Berkel-Manda- Duggari' 1 double plays also remains to be seen. Scherer was next to the bottom in fielding among outfielders of, the league, while Berkel ranked £ounh, among the shortstops. HOLLAND A GOOD ONE. As to Holland, the story about him is this. He won five straight for Quincy, then lost one and then won two more. About that time there came a. pay day and-according to Holland, they; d i d n ' t pay him the salary agreed on, whereupon he started going 1 down and losing:. Then he quit the club. BOTH GOD PROSPECTS. The one best judge of ball players here summing up the deal says that fop the time being Decatur did not better itself, but that the two new men are youngsters, are great prospects for nest year and with nothing golnff wrong with them, jJecatur will be at the long end of the deal next season. AVERAGES OP PLAYERS. Following are the official figure! given on the lour players last week: Games. Field Av. Bat. Av. .. 65 .907 .SOT .. SS .927 .24* .. 61 .634 .18S .. 20 none given .111 Berkel, however, has dropped about twelve points in batting since the official averages were issued. PEORIA AFTER CONGER. Peoria wanted shortstop Consrer the worst way and Manager Rowland and the distiller club directors were greatly; put out because they had los* him. After they learned of the transaction they wtnt around to tne Decatur man who had put across the deal and offered him almost any amount for the young shortstop. They also offered several Peoria players for him. Rowland had been dickering for Conger before, but had delayed the flea! in tho hor'o that he could secure him from Q u L n c y at a much smaller price^ Then Deeatur stepped in.
