"iUy    attention   has   been called to  the  fact  that  two  of  the prominent  rule-maVicrs   of the league held  opposite views in regard to the repealW  retention  of the existing  four strike  rule.   Another contention   is  a needed  cliang-e  in   the scoring  rules,  so     as  to give more encouragement to '''team  work at thc hat";   the scoring rules  now  giving  a hipli   premium  to  "re.  cord   batting" instead of encouraging  '���������playing for the side."  "In  regard   to the foul strike     and  its    rorcal    or afnendiiient,   I simply  ha\e this to say;   As at present word  cd  the rule is not only damaging   to  tenm work at the bat,  but  it i.s       a  heavy   handicap  to successful      base-  rtnining.    In   the first place,  in     its  cfieel. ..on UaUing, it cuts off a |>.;in0i,  of  Hie class  of effective  hits  tmown  as 'low liners'���������balls hit on a line to  tin- outfield, "which, after passing over fair ground in front of first    and  third    l.'ase,    suddenly curve  to foul  ground.     These    particular  hits are  ne cr intentional fouls and should not  be penalised  as foul strike hits.     In  fact, they properly belong to the bas������  hit .column  and should  be so recorded.  Secondly,  the foul strike rule materially retards the stealing of bases  and this result should be obviated by  an amicndmcTit to the rule so as   to  prevent    the calling    of foul    si.'ikes  when  a runner is  on a base,   as    no  good  batsman-ever   intentionally hits  a I -till  foul  with a rentier on abase,  though he may when no one is    on  n base to  be assisted  around  by thc  batsman.  The custinp rule governing the calling    of'Strikes  is one  of the  worst  worded   laws   in  the code.
