The Springfield men made a good
impression; they talk business, and
while a little new to basebnll got
some valuable pointers. The first and
main thing with them is to strength
en the Wanderers, and it is reported
that one new man already signed is
McCnffcrtj', who has been released to
them by Bloomington. The story was
that Decatur offered McCafTerty $100
a month, but the local magnates
laugh at that. Mac will be a good
man for Springfield, for he is a good
pitcher when working well.
Arrangements were made for trans
ferring the. Saturday game to Spring

that the season was to open there
that day. The schedule calls for the'

important on this account.
