Leagues Have 25 Men On Ineligible Lists
Only Three Clubs in the American League Have Put Up the Bars Against
Players Gossip About Big League Men.
By DAMON RUNY0N.
N'
. EW YORK. N. T.; Jan. 29. There
are today in the United States,
and environs, some 25 men to
whom the doors, windows, fire escapes,
and every other mode of ingress to or
ganized baseball perhaps the
turnstiles, are barred. Organised base
ball rarely, if ever, bars anybody from
the pass-as-you-ester opening.
Some of these 25 young men are
young and others are not so young -as
they used to be, but they are kin in a
common cause they are the brothers
of the blacklist. True, organized base
ball softens the asperities of : the team
by calling it the ineligible list, but it
is none the less a blacklist, and those
entered thereon are debarred from
taming a living in any league under
the jurisdiction of the baseball powers
mst as effectually as if they were in
It doesn't make a lot of difference.
rt that, because it appears that most
of those blacklisted, or declared ineli
gible, are men who have either passed
tneir period of baseball usefulness, or
iieer displayed enough talent to get
anybody wildly excited about them.- It
has been demonstrated time and again
that any real star who gets in bad with
organized baseball can easily secure
reinstatement.
Only Six In American.
E ery club in the National league has
one ore more on the ineligible list, but
only three clubs in the American have
put up the bars on players, and the
total in the younger league is but six.

Hendricks is a huge left hairier who
was dug up at Benton Harbor, Mich,
bj "Crazy" Schmidt, and was tried out
at Marlin in 1910. He showed some
promise, but when McGraw tried to
send him to Newark he leaped out of
organized ball and has since been pltch
mg in semi-pro company around his
nome town. Monte Pfyl has almost
been forgotten by the fans. It was
vears ago that he hopped to the Cali
;ornia outlaws, and it has been some
time since he has been regarded as a
sen iceable ball player, especially for a
Lir league club.
Young Shore is a cadaverous youth
who came to the Giants last season
from a North Carolina college. He

for 10 runs in one inning of a game at

not the baby of the bunch. Milton

record until Grinier, who played ball
last season under the name of Green,
came in. Grinier has Just turned 18,
but for all that he is a whaling big

Last' season Grinier, who is a right

Connecticut league. He appeared in
42 games, winning nine and losing 14.
His club finished fourth in a six-club
league, Grinier finished 21 games, and
worked a grand total of 235 innings, in
which his opponents found him for only
177 hits and 93 runs. He w-s the
strikeout marvel of the league, whif
fing 212 batsmen, but he was also very
wild, walking 104 men. He hit 16 and
tore off six wild. pitches.

Tales
ifct"TTHEK I first started in the baring game," says Sammy Robidoux, the
& newest lightweight wonder, "it as as a kid upon a battleship. Went
into the navy at 16, ana did four years on the ships of steel. Every
sailor does more or less boxing, and I took a Ric-t liking to the gloves. After I'd
been in a dozen or 15 fights, some sports of Philadelphia came to me with an in
teresting proposition. My ship was laid up for repairs; I could easily get a rea
sonable shore leave and there was an amateur tourney on at Philadelphia. See
the connection? They proposed to run me in as a novice in the 125 pound class,
cop all the trophies in sight and crow over some other set of dudes who were back
ing another youngster. This young fighter, so they said, was a lad named Eddie
Stone, and had carrried off the medals and the watches two years in succession.
If he could be downed, it would be great stuff all round, and I wouldn't be the
loser. Did I grab it? Would a duck dive into a bright blue river?
"So, on the night of the big tourney, there was Seaman Robidoux, entered un
der the name of plain Samuel Robidoux of Gennantown and I easily stopped two
youngsters in the trials. Stone, for whom they were gunning, did the same, and it
was nearly midnight when- we came together. When I got a good look at Stone, I
saw that he was a husky little chap, about 22 years old, and with an air of breed
ing and real class about him. And, believe me, he was a fighter!
"We went three rounds, the tide of victory swaying back and forth, and the
judges couldn't decide between us. They ordered an extra round, and I tore in with
all the strength I carried. I sure was lucky just as Stone seemed to be driving
me back I copped with a leavy swing, and down he went, dead to the whole world
around him. One faction of people wept and wailed; the other faction shrieked
for joy and paid me $200. I returned to the ship next morning, somewhat bunged
up, but happy, and was busy holystoning a section of the deck ,when a voice nearby
spoke briefly, "I say, boy, take a message to the conning tower, will you?"
"Ay, ay, sir," I responded, scrambling to my feet. A stocky little fellow in a
lieutenant's uniform advanced to hand me the message and I looked into the
discolored eyes of "Eddie Stone,' my victim in the battle of the night before!
"Lieut 3,tone had just been transferred to my ship, so I learned during the
day. He had been a crack amateur boxer for years, and a certain crowd had long
planned his downfall but it was surely tough pickings to have an apprentice sea
man from his own ship rung in to trim hird! I never said one word of the affair
until my time was up, and the lieutenant never talked about it, either but many
a wink and smile we exchanged during the years that followed. What I want to
know, though I'll ask the lieutenant now that I'm out of the service next time I
meet him is this: Did I commit mutiny that night when I struck my superior
officer?"
A Little Sport;
ENNY CHAVEZ, the bantam

to secure a match with Frankie Conley
is one of the most clever and aggres

that have seen the little Mexican box
that be is one of the quickest men ever
seen in the ring, and that with. proper
management he would be champion of

Only Three Bowlers Eclipse the 300
Mark In Contest on WlBwam Alleys.
Jennings' Bowls Good Match
The crack Cactus club bowling quin
tet easily demonstrated its superiority
over the Wigwam team Tuesday night
at the new alleys by a margin .of 1S4
pins. Weak totals were rolled by both
teams, because of the swiftness of the
alleys. Clark was the only bowler to
roll a game over 200. and only three
bowlers eclipsed the 500 mark for the
match. Three of the four points were
won by the Cactus bowlers, who rolled
their usual steady game. Clark was
again the man in the pinch for ne
Cactus and rolled high total, with a
rUInhe''ln'dustrial league at the Cactus
alleys a classy exhibition was rolled
between the El Toros and William
Jennings' team. The famous on agin,

William Jennings quintet, who may
roll a grand total well above the -500
mark and then again fall 300 points.
Three of the members of the Jennings
team rolled games well above 500. High
games were also rolled by the victors
and the match was one of the best or

McGraw Gets Down To ork For Season
Pilot of the Giants Says He Will Have Just About as Fancy an Aggregation
as Ever 'Represented New York.
NEW YORK, Jan. 29. John X
McGraw, manager or theicham
plon Giants, peeled right down
to fighting togs upon his arrival from
Chicago. The little Napoleon is
through with the theatrical game for
the rest of the season and will devote
the next month to lining up his men
for a campaign for a third straight
pennant. . '
"I will never claim another flag,
said McGraw, "after what happened to
my predictions in 1906. The old gang
that grabbed pennants for me in 1804
and 1905 loked the best bet I ever saw
In baseball. We had all sorts of tough
luck in 1907. Matty contracted diph
theria and Bresnahan was laid out for
weeks before Donlln broke his leg.
Such things might happen to us before
October. . ..
"I think, though, that when the
bell taps, I will have just about as
fancy an aggregation as ever repre
sented New York. For the last couple
of year there has been no lack 01
speed. I have a couple of recruits that
will be given every encouragement
who are just as fast as Devore. treorge

Milton Stock will bear watching. I
could have sold Stock to George tail
ings last summer for $6500, and he
cost me only ?750 by draft. That
shows what I think of him. Stock, in
my estimation, can get from the plate
to first base faster than anyone in
my club." .
3IcGraw to Depart Early.
McGraw will leave for Marlin
Springs, Texas, immediately after the
joint scheduled meeting of the two big
leagues, to be -held in this city next
month. He plans to beat the "B-Hk-ies"
to camp by several days. The
youngsters have been ordered to as
semble at St. Louis on February 18.
They will arrive in Texas, under charge
of Wilbert Robinson, on February 20.
The Giant regulars .wll leave St. Louis
on February 27. Thus McGraw expects
to have 10 full days in which to study
the recruits before the first string men
put in an appearance.
McGraw has finally put one over
on his old rival. Johnny Bvers. man
ager of -the Chicago. Cube. He has
signed Johnny's kid brother for the
Giants. The younger Bvers. but -3
years o age, is a crack semi-pro ln-
U appears that Johnny Evers. before
he became ambitious to lead the cubs,
secured McGraw's promise to take the
"kid" to Marlin this spring. Late1
when Johnny ucceeded Chance, he tried
every way to call off the old agree
ment. The Trojan "Crab" declares that
Ever." the younger, will outshine the
Cub manager inide of two years.

wilds of Medicine Hat, has held no
official communication with the Little
Napoleon since the close of the world s
series. Nor does McGraw seem to be
worrying greatly. It was impossible
to get a "rise" out of him on, the
"Rube."
Hopes to Develop Schnpu.
McGraw, however, appears to b
taking nothing for granted. He hopes
to develop a -worthy southpaw from
Fred Schupp, of the Decatur club of
the Three-I league. Schupp was the
"Iron man" of his circuit in 1912. He
worked in 51 games, winning 22 and
losing 20, for a bad club. Schupp seems
to be fairly steady for a young port
sider. He gave only 148 walks, less
than three to a game, and was guilty
of but nine wild pitches.
Another pitcher in whom McGraw is
very much interested Is E. K. Perry
man, who is the biggest tosser In cap
tivity. He stands 6 feet 4 1-2 inches,
and weighs 193 pounds.
Tm just gambling on him, said
McGraw. "He won only live games in
20 last season, and he hadn't won any
when I signed him. He may be an
other Tesreau. for I got Jeff under
similar conditions. They tell me he
has the stun, ami u so, 1 ix ne reus-
McGraw says he saw Arthur Fletcher
and Larry Doyle in St. Louis. Both,
are eager to start for Texas. He ran
across Joe Tinker In Chicago. Accord
ing to Joe, Johnny Kling is through
tith the big leagues. McGraw says
Murphy made a very wise move in
landing Bresnahan. He thinks it ques
tionable whether Archer will ever: fully
recover from the injury to bis knee,
sustained late last summer.
