The second of the social sessions of the
directors of the Rock Island Baseball as
sociation was held last evening at the
Rock Island Club with Warren H. Reck
acting as host to his fellow directors
and Manager Jack Tighe. After the
repast they entered into an informal
discussion of the prospects for the
coming season. Nothing was done
other than to make some plans to
wards improving the ball park, but as
the local park is at present the bet
on the circuit, it will need little atten
tion this year.
O. L. Bruner was placed in charge of
the grounds. The directors discussel
a scheme to have but one entrance
with both tire- carriages and the main
gate combined. This would allow a
quicker and better checking of admis
sions and will probably be adopted.

Tighe has but 18 on the list so far, as
he has not yet signed up all of the old
men he has reserved. The list con
tains the names of some likely youn
players and Jack feels sure that this
city is going to have the best team in
its history. Tighe feels so sure he has
the corners well braced up, that he ha
already commenced the weeding out
process and several of the men whom
he had hooked up were released t
other clubs who seemed anxious to
take them. James Beck, signed for
trial at third was released to Hanni
bal and Clarke, a candidate for the
initial sack, was given to Kewanee

Chicago is the Illinois champion and
W. D. Wilson of Marshalltown is the
title holder of Iowa.
Last evening Tripp gave an exhibi

benefit of the members. His opponent
was Scotty Owens of Moline, who fs

several different kinds of pool, and
then Tripp executed a number of fancy

the club, and was put on by the club's
