President Spaulding, of Chicago, has written Fred. Dunlap a letter, asking him to give his views regarding the proposed change of rules.

“What reply will you make regarding the American Association rule which gives the batsman who is hit by a pitched ball his base?” he was asked.

“I will not favor that rule,” said Fred. “I think if we had such rule as that in the League the players would be colliding with the ball early and often, and that a continuous wrangle would follow. No, I think they had better let that rule alone,” and Dunny smiled as though he thought that if it was introduced he would not be a sufferer thereby.
