Next Monday the umpires of the
Thrcc-I league report for their in
structions from President M. H.
Sexton, and Thursday, May 1. the
season of the league formally opens.
Kock Island begins at Decatur and
then plays three games each at
Blooinington, Terre Haute and Kvans
ville in order. May 11 the season is
to be opened in this city with Kvans
ville, the other southern teams of
the league following. The first game
with Davenport will be played May
27 in that city.
City a llaoelmll Criilfr.
This season, from all indications,
will be the most successful one, gen
erally speaking, in the history of pro
fessional baselmll. Kverywhere the
same conditions prevail and the open
ing games in the larger leagues have
Ih-cii well attended wherever weather
was favorable. In Kock Island, which
has a reputation as one of the best
baseball towns of its size in the
west, the record of attendance at a
baseball game was broken at the first
exhibition contest. In fact this city
has properly come to be something
more than the ordinary in minds of
the fans all over the country, for it
is the seat of government of two
leagues, the Thrcc-I and the Western.
To this city will come the troubles
and tribulations of fifteen outside
teams and from the office of Presi
dent Sexton in this city will go forth
the edicts that will make or mar the
status of the national game in the
west. This of itself is enough to
keep local excitement running high
and there is no doubt whatever that
Kock Island will 'live up to. if not
surpass its past records in the mat
ter of attendance at the games.
M. 11. Sexton returned from St. Jo
seph. Mo., early this morning after
his first trip of inspection in his of
ficial capacity as president of the
Western league. He visited four
teams and reports that everything is
in first-class condition. He found
here a letter awaiting him from the
Terre Haute club of the Three-1
