Schultz, secured from Brooklyn, is
also due for a trial. His arm is strong
enough to allow of his pastiming at
second base. In-that event Heinie
Zimmerman will goback to his old
station at third. Schultz was used
yesterday in the exhibition game at
McHenry and cracked three hits.
An outfield recruit and a young
catcher are also due for tryouts and
will be thoroughly worked over dur
ing the battles with the four eastern
Phil Douglas, a White Sock before
he became a Red and Dodger, has
also been purchased by the Cubs and
will have a share in the pitching for
the remainder of the season.
Frank Chance, secure in his orange
groves in California, says Bresnahan
is using poor judgment in using the
Cub pitchers. The former P. L.
opines Roger feels he is either out
of the race or that the Harp just
doesn't know how to work the grape
viners. This verdict is elicited by the
way Bresnahan has left some fellows
in lately when they were being
If Chance had been in touch with
National league baseball this season
his opinion might carry some weight.
In all his years in baseball Chance
never saw anything like this year's
crop, taking the league as a whole.
He overlooks the fact that when he
was winning pennants he was pro
vided with a team already developed.
He had no rebuilding tp do until he
went to New York, and what hap
pened there is history.
This criticism by Chance isn't need
ed, and it isn't worth much consid
eration. Maybe Mordecai Brown
would be in the National yet if his
arm hadn't been worked off.
Wh'rte Sox will have a good rest in
Boston preparatory to1 smashing
against the Red Sox for five games.
The schedule, by a peculiar quirk,
gives the South Siders two idle days I
in a row, and tomorrow a double bill
will be staged.
The exhibition game against Pitts
burgh was something or a farce. Fans
were peeved because Eddie Collins
was not with the Sox, as most of
them had hiked out in the rain for a
sight of the peerless second baseman.
Sox won, 9 to 4, in eight innings.
Davis pitched fine ball against the
National leaguers, though his support
did its best to throw him down. He
held the Pirates to four hits for seven
innings, then eased off and allowed
three runs with the aid of Buck Wea
ver. Rowland also has a midget
catcher named Shook w:th him on
this trip. The recruit is about the
size Schalk was when he came to the
South Side, and resembles Ray in his
playing. He hails from Racine and
can still stand a lot of seasoning?
