The new rules have come to stay, despite the many kicks, and it is doubtful if they will be changed in any particular except the making of “a hit by pitched ball” a base hit. The pitchers are getting used to the way of delivering the ball and are truer than they used to be. Batting has increased about twenty-five per cent. among good hitters, and a popular vote upon the question would show a great majority for the rules as they stand., quoting the New York Sun
