The grounds at Masonic avenue and
Saint Rose avenue, which are being
whipped Into a modern baseball park
by a big force of laborers and me
chanics, will be baptized by the Seals
and Tigers next spring when the sea
son of 1914 starts.
J. Cal Ewing has come out with the
positive announcement that the first
game to be played on the new
grounds will be the opening one of
the season scheduled between San
Francisco and Venice.
"These teams will walk into a
maiden field." said Ewing. "as the
dedication will be made on the open
ing day of the season, which I plan
to make a big occasion.
"The games scheduled in spring be
twen the Seals and the Chicago White
Sox will not be played on the new
grounds. The park will be ready be
fore the opening of the season, but
1 am going to keep the doors locked
until the season starts.
'The new park will be ready long
before the season starts, but no base
ball will be played on it until the
opening of the 1914 campaign."

Yesterday was a big day for Del
Howard, who spent it in Los Angeles.
It was Christmas as well as being
the birthday of the leader of the
Seals. Del confessed that he has
reached the thirty-fifth year of his
career, and he. does not look any older.
Baseball players are worse than sou
brettes nowadays when It comes to
confessing ages. You can always tack
on five years to what they say they
are. and you will come near having
their true age.

When the globe trotting baseball
players left on their tour of the world
they were outfitted like a lot of

the vocation of the tourists by peer

conclusion would be reached that
they were either a collection of weal

or else they were representativs of
some big clothing houses exploiting
something new in the wearing ap

M.-Oedie declares that Carl Mitze
of the Oakland club was the best
catcher in the Pacific Coast league,
with the exception of Gus Fisher. He
says that he waived on Mitze because
the latter was desirlous of playing

McCredies idea that Devlin secured
Catcher Howley from Montreal in ex
change for Mitze.

There will not be any spring sea
son games between the Angels and
White Sox next year declares Henry
Berry of the Los Angeles club. He
has discovered that these games be

take the edge off the opening of the
regular season. Berry plans to have
his team train at San Bernardino, and
it will remain there until March 31.

The third baseman whom Henry
Berry of the Los Angeles club expects
to get from Clarke Griffith of the
Washington Americans may be no
other than Joe Gedeon. the tall, rangy
Sacramento lad who played with the
Seals the season before last.
Gedeon was with the Senators last
season, but he saw little active duty.
The Washington club has such a sterl
ing infield that there was but little
chance of a recruit breaking in.
If Berry secures Gedeon he should
prove a valuable man for his club. He
looked like a promising youngster
when he left the Seals.

CAMERA SEALS FATE
OF A GIANT WHO DID
NOT DELIVER GOODS
McGraw is what you might term a large minded and large hearted
man. I know this from eleven years of experience under his man
agement. It would be hard to count the number of friends, down on,
their luck, that McGraw has helped over the big bumps when the
going was rough. He does - not talk about himself. There have been
alleged friends who have taken or stolen money from him, but he
never appears to have resented that particularly. Of course, he does
not like this style of fellow any too well, but he does not class him
as his enemy.
The man that McGraw hates, however, is the one who lies to him.
He can forgive a player who makes an error or one who pulls a thick
headed piece of work, but he hates the man who tries to lie his way
out of a hole. There was a player on the Giants some years ago when
the moving pictures were just coming into general favor who tried to
dodge a "bawling out" by the well known route of lying. I do not
want to mention the player's name or his position, because I do not
think McGraw would care to have me.
"Why didn't you get that fly?"' barked McGraw in the clubhouse
after the game to the player who did not get near the ball.
The player stammered around for a minute and then said:
"I never saw the ball. I didn't know where it was going. I lost
CAMERA TELLS THE TRUE STORY
McGraw said nothing more, because it is not his habit to question
the word of his men. He doe« not believe that suspicion fosters truth.
However, it seems that a moving picture man had received permission
to try out a film on this game and McGraw a few days later was
invited to a private exhibition of the picture when it was finished.
He was the only spectator, outside of the film men themselves,
present. He was sitting all alone in the theater when the play that
he had asked the man about and which had since completely slipped
his mind came up. The camera showed the player who denied having
seen the ball staring right at it.
"There's one for the book," said McGraw afterward. "I have
long known that figures don'f lie. and neither do moving picture
cameras, I guess. Now. I could not have sworn that this bird saw
the ball and I would not have been sure of it if all the other players
had said so and every spectator in the stand, in addition; but this
picture shows it."
The player is not with the Giants now.
Of course, I am deeply interested in the deal between the Reds
and the Giants. Two players have caught McGraw's eye for some
time. One was Konetchy. who has gone to the Pirates and who will
never get away from Clarke's hooks now since Fred has been making
such a thorough search for a first baseman of practical dimensions for
years. The other man who attracted McGraw was Bob Bescher.
The Giants' boss has always considered him to be a great player.
He likes speedy men anyway, and Bescher certainly has the speed.
He is also one of the best fielders in thf country and a wonderful base
runner, figuring the stages and getting the old "percentage" with him
when he starts. Bescher should make a great record with the Giants
and is bound to crowd out one of last year's regular outfield trio
because he is slated for a steady job.
GREAT CHANCE FOR HERZOG
It looks as if McGraw will have to get another utility infielder.
Herzog was a fine player, but Mac never has stood in the way of a
man who had a chance to get a job managing, and at this writing
"Herzy" appears to have that chance. He is a man who will be
missed by the Giants because of the pep that he puts into a team.
Herzog knows baseball and he has the heart to keep a club fighting,
which the Reds need badly.
If Herzog can handle men he should make good in Cincinnati—
that is, if the club's owners will let him have some say about the team.
Any man who goes into Cincinnati has a tough proposition on his
hands. The club must be reorganized and discipline drilled into the
players. Besides this, the new manager has the directors and owners
to get along with. Tinker thought he could apply the methods of
Frank Chance to the Reds and get some discipline. He failed.
McGraw is certainly well supplied with outfielders now. I was
counting them up the other day and I believe he has ten on his list.
I expect that he will trade some of them for another infielder, since,
as I have hinted, he is short a good reliable utility performer.
At this writing the Tinker deal is still unsettled. I have known
all along that Joe wanted to go to Chicago because of his business
interests there, and that is the reason I predicted in an article some
time ago that he would be with the Cubs next year. However, I do
not see how he can afford to turn down $10,000 because he is par
ticular about th>e kind of uniform he wears.
The deal, if finally it holds, will be a good one for the Brooklyn
club. Behind it was the shrewdness of Robbie and the McGraw
methods. Robbie realized that by plugging the gap at shortstop he
had a pennant possibility in the Brooklyn club. He doubtless advised
Ebbets to make the deal. Many a club has been turned into a cham
pionship team by the addition of one man to fill an apparent cavity.
With Tinker playing with Brooklyn the Superbas will be up in the

SWITCH IN DATE
The holding of the intercollegiate
track meet down at Stanford on April
18 necessitates the arranging of an
other day on which to hold the tri
angular regatta on the estuary in
which the University of Washington,
University of California and Leland
Stanford Jr. university will compete.
When the dual track meet is held at
Berkeley It has been customary to
hold the regatta on trie same day,
the race taking place on the estuary
in the morning.
Though no definite date has been
set for the regatta. It will be rowed
either the Saturday before or the
Saturday after the big track meet,
probably the former. With the re
gatta as the only intercollegiate fea
ture of the day, it is expected that
a much larger crowd Jetil gather to
follow the race than when the re
gatta and the track meet fall on the
For the last two years the observa
tion train has been taxed to its full
capacity, so it looks as though the
time is not far distant when trains
will have to be run on both sides
of the mole instead of on the one
side as in the past.
Greater interest than usual at
taches to the 1914 regatta owing to
the fact that the Washington crew
will be here ladened with the honors
it won at Poughkeepsie last June.
The northwestern boys made a won
derful showing in that regatta, and,
by taking third place, put coast row
ing on the map in the east.
WASHINGTON LOOKS BEST
In the coast intercollegiate regatta
last year Washington won with ease
and is, of course, hoping to repeat
next April. Coach Hi Conibear has
been laying plans ever since the last
regatta to further Improve his crew
and when he comes down here in
April his crew is expecting to show
many little improvements gained by
their measuring blades with the crack
Though Washington must of neces
sity be considered as the favorite for
the honors at this date there is con
siderable time before the day of the
race for the two local varsity crews
to do things.
The University of California Intends
to make a big bid for the honors this
year and the boys across the bay
have been working steadily for the
last month under the new coach to
perfect the new style of stroke that
Charlie Stephenson thinks will go a
long way toward bringing home the
bacon for the blue and gold.
The engagement of Stephenson as
coach shows that the California boys
want to see just what can be got out
of their material with a high class,
competent professional coach. Steph
enson was formerly assistant coach
at Harvard and in his day was one of
the world's great single scullers. He
has shown the blue and gold boys on
the machines that he knows what he
talks about and furthermore he has
shown that he knows how to impart
his knowledge to the crew men.
STANFORD CREW INTACT
Stanford university will not have
a professional coach and the coaching
of the crew will be done by a com
mittee of former varsity crew men.
Last year Pat ODea coached the car
dinal crew and turned out a winning
freshman eight and his men defeated
California, but were unable to over
come the strong Washington eight
that Hi Conibear put into the shell.
Stanford will have practically the
same crew next April that represented
the university in the last race. Bob
Duryea. last year's captain, will be
the only veteran missing from the
boat. With seven experienced varsity
men to work on, besides the victorious
freshman crew and innumerable other
good men that failed to make both
varsity and freshman boats last April
the Stanford coaching committee has
hopes of sending a fast, hardy crew
Into the race.

the newspapers between coaches of
the two styles of play, and is in line
with Walter Camps statement in
making his All-American selections
regarding the possibilities of the open
game from & Rugby standpoint.
Just wait until the little All-
America track team down in New
Zealand and Australia strikes its
stride. It has started off in prom
ising fashion. One record in the first
meet is something worth while, and
by the time the lads are ready to
leave the land of the Southern Cross
they will have many more of the
Australasian records tucked away in
their grips to bring home as memen
toes of the trip.
Officials of the Public Schools Ath
letic league are now holding out some
hopes for the life of the league since
the mayor has stated that he is in
favor of athletics in the schools. The
mayor has a son who is some base
ball player, and the father well real
izes what athletic exercises means to
the children of the schools. The
whole situation looks as though it
will be cleared up by next Tuesday
at the latest.
It looks as though Stanford base
ball team will make a pilgrimage to
southern California this season to
play a series of games with the Uni

bring about such a visit, and Grad
uate Manager R. W. Wilcox of Stan

to Los Angeles and confer on the sub

ranged, it will be the first time in
several years that Stanford ball teams
have played In the south.

The New York Evening Mail has
come out with a long story telling
of the merits of our good old "Honest
John" Elliott and the great work he
has done for the amateur game on
this coast. The Mail states that it
has it on good authority that John
will be put up for president of the
A. A. I" next year, and in fact, favors
the candidacy of our man. Looks as
though the coast will be able to upset
tradition if necessary to get Elliott
elected. It has been an unwritten
law that a president holds his posi
tion for two terms, but Delegate
James gave the easterners full notice
at the last meeting that the coast
would start a boom for a far western
man. Though Elliott has not been j
officialy selected by the coast to run
for the position, he is without doubt
the strongest man that the coast
could send up for the berth, and there
is little doubt that when the time
comes we will be able to get the full
support of the two other coast sec
tions and the Hawaiian branch for
the candidacy of Elliott. There are
several of the eastern branches that
are also ready to support Elliott.

Although a game of golf is sup
posed to be played over 18 holes, yet
there exists a number of courses
which are Irregular. In Great Brit
ain there are a number of them. Skel
morlie has only 12 holes, 6 of which
are replayed In order to make up the
round. Another 12 hole course is at
Bude Cliff, near the Cornish coast.
Here the score cards are arranged for
only 12 holes, which constitute the
round. Years ago, Musselburgh could
offer only 5 holes, while St. Andrew's
boasted of 22. At Nasik, India, the
Royal Western India club has a 17
hole course, and one hole is replayed.
In Australia these irregular courses
are not uncommon. Until a few years
ago Pertb ( Western Australia) had 12
holes; Lindisfarne (Tasmania) had 10,
and at Wellington (New Zealand) the
Walraropa and Wellington clubs
each had a 13 hole course.

Griswold Takes the
Honors in Match on
Links at Claremont
A. H. Griswold yesterday won the
one ball sweepstake tournament of
the Claremont Country club, turning
in the best guess and the best net
scores. He had a handicap of 14. and
made the rounds in 81 gross, which
gave him a net of 67.
The threatening weather in the
morning kept many of the original
entrants away, and when play was
called seventeen' players were on
hand. The ground was not conducive
to extremely low scores, and. under
the conditions, Griswold"* gross must
be considered a good showing.
