1TTIT1I Itudland Held brnutifulh niniiicurcd nrnl tlio diamond nil shlned up,
l" everything was in readiness fm the opening tilt of the norlil series todn.
The nathcs, after waiting for fifu cars to hnve a look Ht nn event of this
character, were on the joli earlj and ient their dnv "s ncntion in the ball jnrd.
It looked as if a pleasant time would be had by all.
llapball is the principal topic of conveiation todar.
And cen the contesting plnjcrs are discussing the outcome
of the camp's. Heretofore they used up all of their talk
on the horses pntpied in the 'J,fitonin event The track
not n big plm in the last two dajs On Monday the
Iteds were out in full force, and jeslerdaj the White Sox
did sonic tall nn!- lofty guessing. It's a Rood thing n
world scries will be plajed because it will take a lot of
coin to cpii things up.
Last night there was a possiluliU of Kid Glcason
fhallenging I'at Moran in n finish tight because of an
argument oer the ground rules. Kxtra seats have been
built in left and right 'fields, and Moran says that hits
knotkeil into the left-field crowd should count for two
bases and right-field swats for three, Gleason is holding
out for home runs in either field and a deadlock has
resulted The opposing managers and the umpires will hae to make up n set
of ground rules and a lieh battle is piomised when this is attempted.
Tfelther side will ghe'in. and there is an ideal setting for a strike or something
It will be to (.'iuuniiati's iiihnntage to put thoe giound rule1- over.
There nre few long hitters on the club, while .lackson, rVIsch, Weaver, I'ddie
Collins, John Collins and (Jandil are hkelj to give the pill n long ride an old
time during the game. Gleason knows this and refuses to stand for anj hoi us
pocus stuff He would lose the best part of his attaik with home runs Mr
'tually eliminated. At that, the playing held is no smaller than the I'hils'. and
there are not many home run smiuks in the left field bleachers at llroad and
Huntingdon streets m n season
'PHE Xational Commission has promised to Keep its hands off he
cause the tiicmocM hate other impoiinnt thing In attend tn,
Garry Jlerrmann and Han Johnson arc busu with their tiucits and an
argument oicr the ground rule tncans nothing in their hie.
Cincinnati Too Cramped for Baseball Classic
IHIS town is perking up a bit, now that the first game is to be played,
but one cannot discover nnj of the wild enthusiasm we have been reading
True, the hotels me packed, high prices nre paid for parking spaces,
Jrnfe proprietors are weiting black maskR and wrapping lead pipe around the
utatds of their guests, but you could get the same atmosphere at the Allentown
Cincinnati appears t-j be too small and too cramped for n big baseball
classic. As t.ne expert remarked, it's like trying to stage a Harnum A. Hailey
circus .on a tennis court or holding a Democratic convention in n telephone
pjT Booth. Tliere aren't enough hotpls to tnke care of the visitors, and some have
ogo over the river to Keutuckj to bit the hay. I'erhaps the next time it
will be different if there is going to be n next time

1... flstlnr on long odds. Thej will tulk about Cincinnati winning the series, but
when legal tender is men oned odds of 8 to 5 are demanded. White Sox root-
rs cannot tee a price like that nnd little money has been put up. A trainload
et Woodland Bards which pi'led in this morning carried a large assortment of
Chicago coin, and at this writing the assortment still is intact.
' AH of this means that the White Sox are fnvored in the scries. Baseball
players, American and National Leaguers, are strong for the Chicago crowd
S-'"1"and can't see how they can lose. One well-known plajer said this morning
v that the Sox had it all ovct t incinnati in six positions, and the inarein in the
other two -was too close to tall- about. He sahj Groh was better than Weaver
and Bousch wa3 slightly superior to Felsch.
As for the pitchers, Cincinnati probably had the edge, but the White Sox
had a btrong batting order, which offset this advantage. And allow us to
tate this fame batting order is going to cause a lot of trouble in the next week.
There lave been tauv.y rumors regarding the hurlers to be used in the
cpenJng fraj, but Moran said today he would start Dutch Iteuther, nnd he
hasn't chnuzed his mind rs jet. Gleason will use Cicotte. and that means
--Cdle Bill pitch.
There was some talk about the Kid crossing the done and Rlinninir inff.
iandeK over on the Ked';, but there is nothing to it However, it sounded
logical, because there nre many left-handed hitters on the Iteds. Daubert,

BUT a left-hander in 1ie box would eliminate Ivy Wtngo and send
in Bill Randen, icho is not so good a catcher. Lefty IViHtania
was selected by the dopesiers to start, but now tt's all wet.
Reds Already Have Proved Their Gatneness
JUDGING from the concrhation spilled around the hotel, a stranger would
believe that Cincinnati did not have n possible chance to win. It is claimed
that Daubert, Nealo and Hath will explode and play gummy baseball, and
Tilh those three gents in the air the whole ball club will go flooie. I can't
see 'where they get that stuff. The Iteds are not quitters and they proved it
time and again in the season just closed. It was an uphill fight and they
Take that great series irfXew York, for example. Six games were played
in three days against hostile, rabid audiences, and if the team had any desire
to quit or crack in a vulnerable spot it had a chance right there, instead
the Iteds copped the first two, dropped the next pair and took the last two
"games. The strain then was just as severe as it is now, only more so. Today
they perform before the home folks and will get all the best of it from the
crowd. This dope Bhould be taken into consideration when selecting a winner.
Another thing, apparently, has been overlooked. Cincinnati has come up
from behind and won ball games in the last couple of innings after overcoming
rbig leads. The team imcr has shown any signs of quitting, no matter how
badly things looked. This will help them against the Sox.
Gleason's team also has proved its worth. Batting from the very start
In a. strong league, Chicago stepped out in front and had to play some sweet
beebaU to stay there. The pitchers were not exceptionally good, their offerings
were hammered all over the lot; but the wrecking crew, composed of Eddie
Collins. Weaver, Jackson, Felsch and Gandil, always came tbroueh at th
proper time and batted in enough runs to grab the Terdiet. They, too, have
Wpa many lop-sided games when the odds were against them, and we should
kave some interesting contests.
THH way the series looks to me is that there will he some good pitch
ing handed out by the Reds, lots of hefty wallops by the Box and
' no game will be decided until the last man has been retired. Two
game ball clubs will fight it out for the championship, with the White
Sox a slight favorite.
ptimistic Utterances From Moran and Gleason
CHICAGO practiced on Itedland Field yesterday nnd the players had a good
J, workout. However, Gleason almost lost his best pitcher when Cicotte was
tH the forehead by a ball thrown by Joe Jackson. Eddie was pitching to
: batters and a'' ball was bit to left field. Jackson made the catch and
jbately threw the ball to the infield. It came on a line to the pitcher's box
MM! .Cicotte turned around just in time to get it on the forehead. Had the
SB 'been an inch or two lower the star pitcher would have suffered s broken
;., bmb er a black eye. Kddie took the count, but was not hurt.
"TiiJfTbe Chisago plaers are brimming over with confidence, but can't hold a
Miie to Gleason. The Kid just knows Chicago will win.
" S'Why shouldn't they cop?" be asked aggressively this morning. "All
MAtim the boys have been fighting hard, never laid down on the job and al-
stepped out and won games when they were needed. This series will
fct be an hard as our scheduled games, and I know we will win."
' Tat Moran also lind a few words to say. "It won't be nn easy series,"
V explained, "but we will win in the end. My pitchers are in good shape
4 the other players are ready for the fight of their llves Just watch us
. ppriurn big surprise."
