coming vweek -will .see the in-
auguratlon of hostilities in the Three
Eye league."" Next Thursday (let us
hope the weather will be warmor
then) the Cyst pennant games will be
played, with Rock Island at Cedar
Rapids, Dubuque at Davenport, Peoria
at Bloomington and Decatur at Spring
field. Saturday, two days later, the
teams will switch and the other four
towns will have their opening. Cedar
Rapids being at Rock Island, Daven
port at Dubuque, Bloomington at Feo-
ria and Springfield at Decatur.
Tri city fans will have the advantage
of being In position to take part hi
two openings, one at Davenport and
one at Rock Island, and see half the
league in action, all within three days.
Never before has there been such
uncertainty as to the relative merits
of the Three-Eye teams at the opening
of a pennant race, for never before has
there been such a shakeup in manag
ers and never has there been so much
new material. In the exhibition games
played this spring, little real dope is
to be had. Rock Island and Davenport,
are the only teams that have fairly
contested within the circuit, and visa
ing teams that have played in more
than one city have been affected to
such an extent by circumstances that
there is little chance for comparison.
Look Strong on Paper.
On paper Rock Island and Blooming
ton. with practically the old teams,
look the best. Assuredly, Rock Island
has a stronger aggregation than last
season and the players are in good
Davenport, with practically a new
team, has shown up well and under
Ta Shaffer's leadership may be relied
upon to be In the race all the time.
Peoria and Springfield have almost
entirely new teams and are unknown
quantities, but both have experienced
men at the head, and it may be taken
as settled that if there are any serious
flaws in the early part of the season
they wilt be remedied.
Decatur has a fast bunch and Mai
ager Fred Moore has been doing a lot
of hard work. He claims to have
taught his men some inside baseball
during the spring practice that will
pell results later on.
Dubuque has not had much of a test
so far, but, judging by the character
of men Manager Plass has been
leasing he must have something pretty
Cedar Rapids, as in the days of Bel
den Hill, is a mystery. The Rabbits
have had trouble in holding their own
with the Central association teams
hey have met, and seem due for
slow start, but the league has learned
to expect them to come from the rear
after the season is a few weeks old
Fast As I'.ver In Field.
It is conceded that the league has
not lost in fielding ability by the cut
in salaries to $1,C00 per month, where
they were from $2,000 t6 $2,800 last
year. Some of the teams, notably
Rock Island and Bloomington, are fig
tired to be stronger with the stick than
Probably more uncertainty exists in
regard to pitchers than in any other
department, for there are" many ex
periments here. If the recruits fo
box positions come up to expectations
the race will be a tight one.
WANT HALF HUNDRED

Half That Number Have Already An
nounced Intention of Going to
Twenty-five men hava already sig
nified their intention of accompany
ing the Rock Island ball team to
Geneseo Tuesday for the game with
the Geneseo team of the Henry
County league which will open the
new park there. Geneseo has done
itself proud in its ball lot. its im
provements being on a par with
many of the diamonds in the minor
leagues. Tuesday, is to be made a
big day. Business is to be suspended
for the afternoon and "people1 for
miles round will be on hand for the
game. Rock ' Island was picked to
help open the park because Geneseo
people, next to their own tearra are
more interested in the local team
than in any other, having furnished
this city with a number of recnflts
and having many baseball bugs who
attend games here whenever circum
stances will permit. It is hoped that

GAME TOMORROW IF
SNOW ISN'T TOO DEEP
Itock Island Fans Planning Short
Cut to Davenport by Crossing '
Tomorrow, if the Know is not too
deep, the Islanders will once more
cross the water to meet their ancient
rivals. It is thought that possibly the
Tans will be able to cross on the ice,
thus making a short cut to the grounds
and avoiding waiting' on street cirrf.
In order that the public may not be
disappointed if baseball is deemed in
expedient the two teams will line up
for a snowball contest.
Rock Island has won two out of the
three games played with Davenport
and Manager Tighe has" strong hopes
of annexing the other one. This will
be the last chance to see the Islanders
in action in the three cities before the
opening of the season.
Manager Tighe decided that ?t
would not. be healthy to have his men
play baseball in a' snow storm and so
called off the garne for this afternoon
with the Cross Countrys.

ers or Managers.
President M. H. ' Sexton of the
Three-Eye league has sent out in
structions to the official scorers of
the different cities, the chief aim be
ing to secure uniformity in the re
cording of the games. Specific in
structions are given to avoid a dis
cussion of the scorer's own judgment
in the scoring of plays.
On this point, Mr. Sexton says,
"Do no be influenced by the remarks
of ball players," spectators, of club
officials in your scoring. Refrain as
much as possible from entering' into
discussion ' with players or others in
regard to your judgment in scoring
a play as you did, for this always
leads to unpleasantness and is wholly
"After having scored a play as in
your Judgment it should be scored,
do not later .change it at the instance
of a player or manager who seeks to
benefit himself or some player by
the change. By relieving a player
of; responsibility in a misplay, you
will start a practice most pernicious
in its results, and one that once be
gun will be hard to get away from.
Working; for the Ltsciir,
"The chief thing for the scorer in
his work as the official racorder of
a club's record for the league is. ab
solute impartiality. Be perfectly fair,
square, and unbiased in scoring,
treating home and visiting players
alike in every respect. Never favor
a home player at the expense of a
visiting one. Remember that you
represent the league and not the lo
cal club and that you are responsible
for your work, not to the local as
sociation, but to the president of the
league. Your score sheets are to
be sent into this office as soon as
possible after the game. A fine will
be imposed for unnecessary delay in
sending in the reports."
