presented to Chicago fans to -see
major league ballplayers in action
against each other this year.
Friday an exhibition game will be
played on West Side for the benefit
of the widow ef.Jimmy Doyle," late
third baseman of the Cubs. Bvers'
men win battle with a picked team of
White Sox players. A flat admission
of 50 cents will be charged for any
seat in the park, and promoters of the
affair promise a real ball game and
not an exhibition burlesque.
The Cubs kept in shape yesterday
by trimming the team of Niles, Mich.,
5 to 0, Cheney, Pierce and Lavender
doing the pitching. Saier, Schulte
and 23m were all fanned by the small
Sunday we get a chance to see the
Sox and Giants who will tour the
world. They wfll put on a fight at the
South Side park. McGraw will have
some real Giants in his line-up, but
local Sox fans will be somewhat sur
prised at the White Sox team. For
there will be mighty few regular Hose
on the squad.
Callahan's only complaint is that
he wfll have to give up his world's
tour players when the next season
opens. He surely would like to keep
Sam Crawford out there in right field.
The Winter League is stoking up
earlier than usual this year, and al
ready managers are being traded or
ousted with a care-free abandon Jhat
always marks the work of the Winter
players. Abdication No. 1 concerns
The usual hot tip, this time from
Pittsburgh, says that Charley Herzog
of the Giants will be manager of the
Reds next year if Garry Herrmann
can secure him. The deal is said to
have reached a stage where it is only
a question of what McGraw wants.
Very simple Every trade we ever
heard of reached, a stage where it
was only a question of what someone
wanted, and there it usually stuck.
But there is this much in favor of
'this rumor: If Herrmann is willing
New York, he can have Herzog. Joe
is a better player than Frank Baker's
neighbor, but he is not strong with
Herrmann. And there is a wide split
somewhere between McGraw and
Herzog. They have been on the outs
all year, and McGraw used Herzog
in the world's series only because
injuries forced him to.
There are certain things about
this deal that make it plausible and
there are other things that make it
sound like bunk. For one thing, .if
McGraw decides to dispose of Herzog
he can probably do better than to
trade for Tinker, or any man on the
Little Mac would like to have an
other third baseman in the National
League, a fellow who would just
about make the Giants unbeatable.
The player in question is supposed
to have a "temperament," and is fre
quently ejected from the game. Mc
Graw knows this, however, and is still
anxious to get the man on his roster.
Whenever the Giants have played
against the team of which this man is
a member it has been noticeable that
Mathewson and other older heads
among the New Yorkers have made
much of him, and1 were very friendly.
- Wherehe is now this third base
man is supposed to be a disturber.
But he can surely clout the ball. Mc
Graw might be able to get him for
Herzog and a good outfielder.
Rube Foster, manager of the
American Giants, believes his team
of colored players can lick the Cubs
and he has challenged MurpljyJs men
to a series of three games. The Cub
president has left the challenge up
to his players. Foster's team played
the teams in the Northwestern
League last spring and trimmed them
This 'seems to be an American
League year. Cleveland licked the'
Pirates in the deciding game of their
series yesterday. In three clashes the
Americans were victorious, the
Mackmen, Sox and Naps all winning.
