Aetna thing Abcmt tlio ITamous Trainer -of
Athletes HIj Kooord.
Jack Monasters is a man who is as vridGly
known, as capable and as popular as -any
member of his profession on either side- of
the Atlantic. He was born, says Tho Clip
per, in the parish of Eirkmaidsn, Wigton
shire, Scotland, on Ang. 18, 1851. When,
still in his teens ho commenced the busi
ness of a trainer of athletes. The flrstman
ho trained was James luttall of Manches
ter, for a race for the GOO yards champion
gold cup, which he won. McMasters next
trained Nuttall for his race with S. Ridley,
of Gateshead, to raii 1,000 yards for the
championship and 1,000. Nuttall was
again successful, winning by a yard. He
then trained successively Charles Wright,
James McLeavoy, Yates, Hindle and George
In 1S79 McMasters le-s England in quest
of a wider and more profitable field for his
talents in tho United States, landing in
New York in September of that.ycar. His
first engagement in the United States was
to prepare W. Barnes, of Manayunk, Pa.,
for a match with Tomlinson, of Fjunkford.
Barnes won the race by three yaias. Sub
sequently he trained Lee, of tho University
of Pennsylvania, and also filled the position
of trainer for the Brooklyn Athletic club.
He remained with that club for a year.
During the next four years he trained some
of the best runners, etc., ever seen in
America. Ho is now engaged by C. A.
Byrne to look after the interests of the
members of the Brooklyn Baseball club.
A SKILLFUL PITCHER.
Mark Baldwin, WHO Tosses the Hall for
tho Chicago Players.' Jjaagxiu Club.
Mark Baldwin, the crack twirler of the
Chicago club, of the Players' league, is
one of the ablest pitchers in the profession.
He is of splendid physical development,
standing over 6 feet in height and weighs
about 100 pounds. His professional career
began with his engagement with the Cum
berland (Md.)'club, in 18S3. In 18S5 he
joined the MaKcesport club, and assisted it
to win the championship of the Western
During tho season of I860 he did great
work for the Duluth club, of the North
western league. That season ho pitched
in forty-one games, being eight more than
any piteher of that league.
The Chicagos next secured his services,
and ho moro than fulfilled their expecta
tions throughout tho seasons of '87 and
'88. His most remarkable pitching per
formance was the retiring of the Pitts
burg team with only one safe hit on Sept.
29 of the former year.
Baldwin was one of the party which
made the trip to Australia and Europo
during tho winter of 1886-'89. Upon tho
return of the tourists Anson made tho
biggest mistake of his life. He released
Mark, thinking he had lost his former ef
fectiveness in the box. Manasrer Bucken
burger, of tho Columbus Club, shortly
afterward signed him, and thus showed
good judgment, for Baldwin more than
equalled his previous record, twice holding
tho Brooklyns and once each tho St. Louis
and Athletics down to two hits in a

for many years failed the other day, and
when an agent for one of tho creditors
reached tho place it was to find the propri

I didn't collect sharp enough."
