President Byrne of the Brooklyn Club promises a revolution in Sunday base ball games. Heretofore there have been many games played at different points on Long Island in addition to those by the Brooklyn Club. Already many minor league clubs have arranged for Sunday games on Long Island, and Mr. Byrne has concluded to enforce his five-mile privilege and is going to stop all these games. From what Mr. Byrne says, he can not only stop all national agreement clubs from playing on his territory, but any club not under its protection that breaks the rule can be barred from playing a national agreement club afterward. Mr. Byrne says that this change was made in the rules at the Pittsburgh meeting. Before the change was made he had control of the territory five miles from the city line; not it is five miles from the county line.
