IlKIIMAK'S LONG'S FI.--nf« PLAT. never played the game would often be considered weak from from a professional stand point In the plays that I have selected brain, hand and heart worked together on the impulse, • at- eomplishing that which by lo«iug- a fractional part of a second'wotfLd hove failed. Can you imagine a man flying-? If not, it will be » diflicult matter for me to describe the play made by Herman Long of the Boston <ilub at Plula- delphia. in the summer of 1890. The championship season was about two- i thirds over, and tho quakers were gradually crawling up on the Boston leaders. Hurry Wright's boys had I taken two frames from the champions before tremendous crowds of people, and the third and last game of tho series found the Bostons determined to make the lifflit of their liven. Herman Loup was the hero of the'Boston victory; his batting was terrific and his (ut'lding grand. While both teams were fighting for the lead, he mude a phenomenal play that turned the tables in favor of Boston. The ball was hit hard, and wen! sailing out toward center field. A volley of cheers followed tlio drive and doubled in volume when Long was seen to make what the players call a "Ihinlap" or grand stand catch. In this instance it was the only way the play could have been accomplished. The ball was taken with the right hand over the left shoulder, while in the air, after u sharp run and a flying lea P- where his , heelb went nearly as high as his head. Mr. Long is still a member of the champion Boston team, and the most brilliant ball player on tho field at tho present time. Cal McVey, the old Boston and Chicago league player, was one of tho most powerful throwers I ever saw. In 1870 he was member of the famous Cincinnati Red Stockings, .who were then well into their second season 'without meeting a single defeat. Their first defeat was at the CnpitoUne grounds, Brooklyn, before 50,000 people. In this game MoVey made a wonderful throw, that would have, shut oft the winning run for the At- lantics but for a muff by Allison at the home plate. The ninth inning resulted tn five runs each; tho tenth was a blank; Cincinnati made two runs In the eleventh and felt sure of the game.

Tlic Boston and Cincinnati teamh were playing acloseand brilliant game at Cincinnati, in '0~, when Captain Cornisltey made n play that saved the game at the time for his loam. Hugh Duffy was at third in the last half of the ninth inning', with the store a tie. There was one man out and a (jood, sure hitter at the bat The ball was hit well to the ritrht of. Comiskey, who was playing- first base, lie took the ball with his right, after a jump, and before petting his feet on the ground had sent it to the home plate, in time to catch the fleet-footed Boston maa. The ball was handled with two motions, which necessitated great playing to execute. Jt was the proper time to take a chance, and the great Cincinnati captain was equal to the emergency. Captain Comiskey is a resident of Chicago, and will have charge of the Cincinnati club this season. The teams under this captain have been noted for team work and pluck. Mr. Coiniskey has no equal as a first baso- 1 roan and is the warm friend of every deserving ball player. Paul Hincs is tho only man who ever made a triple play single handed. I It was in '78 that Bines electrified the baseball world by making a triple piny that saved the game for his team and put him a niche higher than any other baseball player. The games of that season between Boston and Providence were contested with a spirit of rivalry worthy of the diamond battles of Harvard and Yale. Large delegations went -with the' teams frdm one city to the other to cheer on their favorites Mid make life miserable for their op- jfcinehts. The game TvaS'drawirifr to'a close, with the score small and Provi- <»notj ono rtm- in- the Ifead. The Bbt- ion men, under the le'aderBhlp of ' Captain Ueorge Wright, the most famous player in America from '09 to the time 1 write of, made -a grand 1 spurt, get-ting men on third and second bases, with three men to diapose of. One run would tie, and in all probability two runs would give the game to Boston, and that, too, on the Providence ground, before a crowd of 6,000 people. Hines, was playing a rather desp center field, and was watching the batsman closely. The ball was hit hftriand passed about three feot COMTBKKV'8 JlTHI'llia STOP, high over second base.

Both men had crossed the home plate, and, seeing there was no use in trying to got back, Htood bewildered as Hine» jogged ovor to third base, putting three men out, as the rnnnsrs were forced to come buck and touch the bases in regular order alter a fly ball hud ben" caitpht.
