CUBS OPEN LOCAL SEASON WITH CINCINNATI TODAY
Fans slre?.ining to the West
Side park this afternoon to wit
ness the opening game of the lo
cal season between the Reds and
Gibs attested that all the bugs
had not lost iaith in Chance's
men, and figure they are in a
temporary slump, from which
they will emerge with flying col
ors, i
All of the Cubs were out at the
park this morning for practice,
and they -are after the two re
maining games with Cincinnati.
The revised batting order will go

Manager Callahan of the Sox
received another severe blow yes
terday when Billy Sullivan, vet
eran catcher of the South Siders,
broke his collarbone at St. Louis,
putting him out of the game for
two months at least. It is also
feared that the injury may per
manently impair' Sully's throw
ing arm. The Sox won, 12 to 7,
making 16 hits, with Ed Walsh in
the box.
Sully was trying to score from
third in eighth inning, when the
Sox made six runs. The tall was
thrown to get Sully at the plate
and Krichell was standing right
in thebase line. Sully -cpllided
with him and shot ten feet over
the plate, landing on his shoulder.
He was carried from the field, and
Recruit Kuhn finished the game.
To (Sully more than any other i i
one person is due the .great show
ing the Sox pitchers have always
made. The wily veteran knew the
weaknesses of the great batters',
and -he was invaluable to the club
in helping to win games with his
headwork, at the same time '
boosting the pitcher's slabbing
average.
Frank Chance' was arrested' in
Michigan ave. yesterday because
his auto was smoking. If he
could only give some of that ex
smoke to his pitchers and have
them put it on the ball dream
on.
