SPALDING'S SCORE BOOK

Spalding's Pocket and Club Score Book continues to be the popular score
book, and is used by all the leading scorers and base ball reporters.
They are adapted for the spectator of ball games, who scores for his own
amusement, as well as the official club scorer, who records the minutest
detail. By this system, the art of scoring can be acquired in a single
game.

Full instructions, with the latest League rules, accompany each book.

[Illustration: Score Book page.]

The above represents a page in our Score Book, greatly reduced. The
diamond in the center of the square represents the base ball field. The
home base is at the bottom of diamond, the first base at right side, etc.
The spaces in each corner of the square are intended to be used in scoring
whatever may have happened to batter or base runner on the line between
the two bases forming a boundary of said space.

SPALDING'S WAGON TONGUE BATS

[Illustration]

Are made of the finest straight grained, well seasoned, second growth Ash
Sticks. All timber must be seasoned at least two years, and free from
knots or imperfections. They are pronounced superior to anything, in the
way of a bat, ever brought out, both as to quality of timber, model and
finish. Special attention is called to the "Oriental Finish" put on these
bats which enables the batter to get a firm grip and renders the custom of
scraping the bat unnecessary. They are made from models of the actual bats
used by the most skillful batters in the League and Association. These
bats were used last year by all the prominent batters in the leading
Leagues and during the World's Series nine-tenths of the bats on the field
were WAGON TONGUE BRAND. Beware of cheap imitations, the only genuine
WAGON TONGUE BAT has our TRADEMARK; all others are counterfeits. These
bats are intended especially for Professional Players, and we urge Club
Managers to place their orders as early as possible, to insure a supply,
as the quantity made is necessarily limited.

PRICE TO CLUBS: Per Doz. $10.00. Each. $1.00.
