, "Johnson 'is a -heap big Injun for
fair. He weighs 190, is nearly six
feet tall, and-has. iiroad, powerful
shoulders. He worked a swell game
for Cincinnati Wednesday, holding
the St Louis Cardinals to three hits
and repulsing 'them from the home
plate for nine innings. )
Johnson was with the White Sox
on their training trip to California.
He show plenty of promise, but-Callahan
already had enough good
pitchers and was forced to let the
red- man go. Some of Joe Tin
ker's, .friends tipped him off to the
Indian's prowess, and the new man
ager df the Reds grabbed him in a
hurry. Joe believes he has a comer,
and is liable to give Johnson his reg

That story that Ty Cobb may be
sold to the New York Yanks by De
troit" sounds plausible. For years the
American League has been trying to
make the New York team pay, arid
the addition of Frank Chance to the
club at a salary of $25,000 a year
shows to what lengths, 'the manage
ment will go. New York is one team
that can afford to pay Cobb $15,000
a year. With Chance, Chase and
Cobb, in the line-up the YankB would
tie 'the greatest drawing cardln the
country. One thing is" certain, Cobb
will never feel the same "interest in
jiis -work should he play, with the
Tigers. Another rumor that 'Cobb
may go to the Athletics can be,spiked
rigfht now. The Mackmen are already
strong and the policy of the Amer
ican League Is to strengthen the
weaker teams and make the pannant
race a close proposition. The fine
Jtalian hand of Ban Johnson can be
seenin this particular base, and if
Cb.bb goes to New York it will be on
the. say-so of the big boss.
