This list is liable to be revised
at the last moment, as all of the
players are not yet in town. One
or two, whose names do not ap
pear, may come in before train
time. Larry Cheney comes under
this heading. Larry is reported to
be a holdout, and neither Evers or
Murphy had heard from early
this meaning. If Cheney is not on
the train it is a pretty safe bet
that he will stick on the outside

Several of the players who
leave tonight will not come back
with the team. They will be
dropped at different minor league
cities on the return trip if further
seasoning is found necessary. It
is fairly certain Evers will keep
his pitchers together until the
opening day. Sommers and Gil
bert are youngsters and nothing
isknown of their ability to make
good in the big league. At least
one catcher will be dropped.
Archer, Sheckard, Mitchell,
Bresnahan, Richie, Lavender and
possibly Charley Smith will be at
the Tampa prep school waiting
for the main squad to arrive.
Tommy Leach will not report un
til March i. Nothing has been
heard from Overall, but if the big
twirler decides to report he will
jump directly from California to
Florida.
All of the men in Florida now
are in good condition. They have
not touched a baseball, but have
been taking long walks, playing
golf and going through other
light exercise to loosen winter
stiffened muscles. Lew Ritchie
was too strenuous and was tossed
from his motorcycle a few weeks
ago, but has recovered.
Johnny Evers is proving an apt
