RING THE ALARUM FOR
BASEBALL IS AT HAND
Major League Season Opens Today Nationals and
Yankees the Opponents Here Johnson to Pitch
and President Wilson Will Throw First Ball.
By WILLIAM PEKT.
Major league baseball for the season
of 1918 -will receive a flying? start this
afternoon at 3 o'clock, when Griffith's
Climbers and Chance's Hopefuls clash
in the opening: game of the American
League season at National Park.
"Walter Johnson, premier hurler of
Ban Johnson's circuit, is slated for
mound duty for the nifty Nationals,
while Ray Caldwell will serve them
over for the lads from the big town.
Today's game will mark the first ap
pearance of Frank Chance in the
American League, and will bring; two
old rivals together, as Manager Grif
fith, of the Nationals, fought Chance
many a game in the old organization..
When seen last hlght, Managed
Chance appeared confident of victory
today, and, although a little set back,
owing to the injuries received in the
exhibition game Monday, is sure that
his club will make a good showing.
The Yankees arrived in town at 9
o'clock last night, and Manager Chance
hustled them all off to bed one hour
later. Asked If he Tould play first base
in the opening gamc7 Chance replied: "I
hope to start, anyway. My leg is not in
the best of shape, but perhaps it wil'
stand the gaff."
In case Chance decides that he cannot
play, Sterrett. the former Princeton Col
lege star, will be on the job.
While the weather man predicts rain.
Manager Griffith stated last night that
the infield had been covered with tar
paulins and that the game would not
be called off until the lasW moment.
Plenty of seats will be on sale at the
ball park, and a record-breaking crowd
is sure to attend. ,
With Walter Johnson will be Eddie
Aiiibmith in the points, and this pair
is being counted upon to prove the
t-tumbling block for the New Yorkers.
Beg Ed Sweeney will moie than likely
be seen wearing the big pad for the
Yankees, although last night he was
suffering from a badly bruised foot, and
Manager Chance mav send joung Will
jams in to do tMTb-ickstopping.
When President Wilson throws out the
first ball, the Nationals will start after
"the Yankees, and a great ball game is
promised the fans. That the park w'ill
bo filled to overflowing, is a certainty,
but at that, there will be plenty of room
for the faithful.
Local Clnbn in Line.
Several local organizations will be on
hand in the boe-s while the Cheering
Squad on the third base line will be out
In full force. Pieparations have been
made at the park to handle the crowd,
and little difficulty is expected.
Johnny Priebt. product of the local
band-lots, will work with the Yankees,
but ai jet h.is not landed a regular
30b Priest has shown up well in the
hpring practice, and is elated for a berth
in the Infield with a little more experi
ence In every city' that lias one of the
opening panics of the 1913 baseball
jtason today there is some unusual
feature to be paraded before the fans
that makes the fray interesting, aside,
fiom the fact of its being the first of
the year. The breaking in of four new
managers in the National League and
one in the American wjll be watched
losely in the reports by fans all over
the country, particularly in those cities
th.it arc so unfortunate as to have to
wait until p week from today to get
their Hist gllmpe of the big leaguers
in action in a regular game.
The get-away card finds the National
League bill arranged with Boston at
New York, St. Louis at Chicago, and
Prookljn at Philadelphia. It is really
the second game of the season for the
last two teams, for the Phillies de
flated the Dodgers in the inaugural
at Ebbets Field. Brooklyn, yesterday.
The American League programme of
nslicrs-in comprises New York at
Washington, Philadelphia at Boston,
Chicago at Cleveland, and Detroit at
St. Louis. The only baseball circuit
cities without big league ball are
Pittsburg. Brooklyn, and Detroit.
The battle of the day that will ap
peal stronKly to fans in general is the
clash of the Red Sox and Athletics at
Boston. Judging from what the cham
pions showed laht jear and what the
Mackmen did during the two previous

Umpire Messrs. Connolly and
years. It would not bo stretching mat
ters to liken this fray to a collision of
the Irresistible with the Immovable. On
paper both teams seem more powerful
than they were in the 1912 race. The
Red Sox hao added the star young first
baseman, Harold Janvrin, to fill the place
of the veteran, Jake Stahl, and such
youngsters as Yerkes, Bedlcnt, and Cady
should be improved becauto of their ex
tra experience, with the old members of
the team still short of that, age when
arms and legs begin to lose their vigor.
Ahlctlcs Arc in Shape.
The Athletics have been tearing
through the South with fearful force,
demolishing any resistance offered by
minor league teams. The veteran pitch
ers. Plank, Coombs, and Bender, seem
to bo their old selves. Several capable
youngsters are on the pitching staff also,
and the void in the outfield will be tilled
capably by cither of the recruits, Daley
and Eddie Murphv. The odds are about
even on the Red Sox-Athletics encounter.
Joe Wood and Chief Bender ate the
probable pitching nominees.
The- "White Sox and Naps, which meet
in the latter's stronghold, cannot be
counted out of the chase for first dlvl
sion honors entirely. Both aggregations
have shown good form In their exhibi
tion games and have some rromising

is expected to hurl Jean Dubuc, the fear

Jllg Time In Chicago.
The contest in Chicago presents new
pilots on both sides, with Evers saying
"at 'em" to the Cubs and Huggins the
same to the Cardinals. By an odd coin
cidence, both are second basemen.
Neither team Is reckoned very strongly in
the gallop for the gonfalon, but both are
peppery teams and can make plenty of
fun fly for the fans. Harry Sallee and

The National League champions of Mc

KELLEY PITCHES CLEVER GAME
In the best-played game seen on tho
Hilltop in a long time, the Business High
School club, with Kelley pitching, de
feated the Georgetown Preps, 3 to 2. in
twehe innings, Kelley striking out fifteen
and allowing only three hits.
Tho score was 1 to 0 until the seventh
inning, when, on Bocrnstein's error, the
Preps tied the score. The Stenographers
scored again In the tenth, on Wood's
double over the right field fence and
Hunt's single through short. The Preps
came back in this inning, and on
Boernstein's error tied the count. The
Business team won out in the twelfth,
when Killey hit safely, stole second, and
scored on Derrick's single.
The game was hard fought through

ing and Wood and Derrick's batting.

, By WltliTAM PEI1T.
In order to put on tlie finishing touches
to the tralnins season, the Nationals
took a 'healthy fall out of the Toronto
International Leaguers in the Concrete
Coliseum yesterday, 13 to 2.
It was not a ball game; simply a
slaughter. Our youne men were In a
savage hitting mood, and collected sev
enteen hits, for a total of thirty bases,
off Rudolph and Brandt, the Canadian
This bombardment Included three home
runs, a triple, and a couple of two-bag
gers, while Carl Cashion, on the mound
for the Griffmen, went the full route
and yielded seven hits. The Carolina
curver was backed up by brilliant sup
port; not an error cropped out during
the nine innings.
In order to give his regulars a chance
to rest up for the big doings tomorrow,
Manager Griffith pulled out his entire
first team after the fifth, with the ex
ceptlon of his battery, and gave the kids
a chance to stretchy their legs before an
admiring throng of 123 sersons, including
two sailors and a dog.
Toronto won the championship of the
International League last year with the
ldcntlcotAclub which faced the Nationals
yesterday, and Rudolph was their win-
nlrig pitcher. Mr. Rudolph only tolled
four innings, 'and during that time he
was batted to all corners of the field.
Brant, a youngster, who succeeded Ru
dolph, did a whole lot better.
The International Leaguers did not ap
pear to be In good physical condition
notwithstanding the fact that they have
been training at Macon, Ga., for the past
month. Manager Joe Kelley stated after
the game that Pitcher Rudolph, who de
pends entirely upon a spitball for his sue
cess, did not attempt to use the saliva
lllng once, which may explain why the
Griffmen carried him for thirteen safe
Caahlon Has: Good liar
Cashion handed out six passes, and
apparently did not use all his stuff. Up
to the seventh Inning he allowed but one
hit, then he eased up, and the visitors
started to clout the ball, but bang-up
fielding behind tho Carolina curver kept
the Toronto run total down.
When Griff changed his line-up as the
Canadians went to bat in the sixth,
Schacfer replaced Gandil at first, Gedeon
took Morgan's Job at second, Morley
went In for McBride at short, Laporte
for Foster at third. Altrock for Shanks.
Calvo for Moeller. and Acosta for Milan.
Cashion and yVllliams stuck it out dur
ing the entire route.
Moeller started the Nationals' run hunt
by beating out a bunt in the opener. A
wild pitch and a stolen base put him on
third, and Foster's single scored him.
Foster swiped second and counted on two
infield outs. Morgan walked, stolo sec
ond, and crossed the plate on "Williams'
single to left. Three rune.
Cashion drew a pass in tho home folks
second and came In on Moeller's double.
A single by Morgan in the third, followed
by Williams' double. Shanks' single, and
a home run smash to center by Cashion,
added four more runs, placing the Na
tionals' total at eight.
After two had perished in the Griff
men's fourth. Gandil and Williams
singled and Shanks connected for a
home run to left center. Three more tal
lies. When the fifth inning for Washington
opened Rudolph was warming the bench
and Brant, a youngster obtained from
the Boston Red Sox, was on the mound.
Moeller was passed for a starter, and
sprinted all the way from first to the
plate on Foster's single near tho right
field foul line.
The final tally credited the home folks
came In the seventh, when Frank La
porte met the first ball pitched, sending
it to tne center field fence for a circuit
Outside of the heavy hitting of the
Nationals, the combat was featureless.
