No Adequate Punishment Con
ceived to Combat Evil.
Athletes Who Disregard Contracts Are
Attracted by Immediate Enrichment
Texas League Hit Harder
How to curb contract Jumpers' has
taxed the brains of thu wisest heads
In baseball, but beyond tho threat to
ostracize restless athletes from tho
game for a five-year period, no punish'
ment hns been conceived successfully
to combat this growing menace, writes
Otis Harris In Shreveport Journal.
Nine athletes out of 10 who vnult the
barrier give little thought to thu fu
ture, hut uro uttracted away from tho
organized game by promise of Imme
diate enrichment nnd of prospect of
year-round employment In tho Indus
tries which they represent on the dia
Tho Texas league this season has
been hit harder than usual by contrnct
Jumpers, threo teams having either
been completely broken up or badly
crippled, and while tho names of tho
Junipers havo been placed tin tho black
list, this has not been effectlvo In
keeping others In thu harness.
Tho Jumping nthlutcn will bo re
placed In time, but In these days of
a shortnge In tho market, tho rebuild
ing process must necessarily bu slow.
Tho fact that contract Jumpers hnvo
no standing whatever In organized
baseball and that they automatically
bar themselves from tho game for flvo
years! when they leave Is given Uttlo
thought by tho players themselves, nnd
unless somu moru effective menus Is
discovered to handle tllein, contract
Jumpers will bo beyond handling at all
In another season.
Tho war Is on between organized,
baseball ami tile Independents, nnd tho
latter seem to havo the best of It as
far as It has gone. They haven't been
ablo to wreck any leagues, but their
activities- aro causing mnny club own
ers sleepless nights.
