The Clipper answers a correspondent, that “Bond has the best average of least earned runs and fewest base hits off his pitching.” This is incorrect, as McBride was superior in both respects last season. The runs earned off Bond last season averaged 1.75 to a game, while but 1.27 runs to a game were earned off McBride. The average, also, of base hits to a game was 9.21 off McBride and 10.47 off Bond’s pitching. Matthews, of the Mutuals, had also a better average than Bond in regard to the base hits made off him in each championship game.
