Cap. Anson is quoted as favoring various changes in the League playing rules at the next annual meeting. He would place the pitcher five feet further back, restore the foul bound catch, and allow players to be withdrawn from a team during a game at the pleasure of the captain. In desiring to place the pitcher further back his head is level. This change was advocated by The Sporting Life last fall. In regard to the other propositions he is away “off.” We do not believe he is correctly reported in regard to the last two changes.
