One of the Three Remaining Mem

icans, is considering a re-entry into
baseball. When Stahl was canned
from the leadership of the Red Sox in
the middle of last season he announc
ed that he was through with the ac
tive end of baseball for all time.
But and J. Garland says it himself,
money can cause a man to make
numerous changes of opinion. Fed
eral League promoters want the
'former National and Red Sock to
take charge of the Brooklyn team of
the new circuit, and he is said to
have been made a flattering offer.
Aside from money, there is one oth
er obstacle to Stahl's acceptance of
the Federal offer. J. Garland is a
warm personal friend of Ban John
son, president of the American
League, and it is not believed he
would accept the offer if Johnson
asked him to turn it down.
When Stahl was humiliated during
the season Johnson took stern meas
ures to punish his former bosses, and
saw to it that Jimmy McAleer and'
Robert McRoy were removed- as
heads of the Boston team. He has
proven himself Stahl's friend and ad
mirer in several other ways.
Manager Joe Tinker of the local
Feds, has transferred Southpaw
Packard, last year with Cincinnati,
to George Stovall's St Louis team.
This shift was necessitated by Stov
all's inability to sign a left-hander of
major league caliber.
It is probable that Stovall will now
relinquish all claim to Catcher Art
Wilson, last year a Giant, and Tinker
will take over the services of the
backstopped. Joey needs receivers
badly. The rejumping of Killifer hurt
his line-up, and though the Feds will
make a fight for the Philly, even
should they be victorious it will be
the middle of the season before the'
case is settled.
In the meantime they must have1
catchers and Wilson will probably
bear the brunt of the local work.
Federal League officials, well satis
fied with the progress they have been
making, are taking a temporary rest,
but they are not asleep by any means.
They undoubtedly have their eyes on
Toledo, which city was vacated by
the American Association yesterday,
and there would be no great surprise
caused if the Feds shifted the Buf
falo franchise to the Ohio city.
