Somewhat strange, this report enia
uating from Peoria that credits Presi
dent Johnson of the baseball associa
tion there with stating that. President
Sexton is to blame for the ill success
of baseball in that city this season.
The chances are that President John
son never made such statements. I
he did and does not know better it is
no wonder baseball was a fizzle under
It has been demonstrated repeatedly
that Peoria will not support a team un
less it is winning, and Peoria's learn
this year ciid not win the majority of
its .games. Therefore, we find the city
i hat ought to have led the league
standing about fifth in attendance.
The fact . is that Peoria, even with
its large attendance figures in other
years has paid its teams such high
salaries thai it has never made money,
and. had it continued in the circuit
this season and been allowed to go
on as e)f old. the balance of the cities
would have been "busted" trying to
keep the pace, even if Peoria survived.
I'nvornl lrrnrat I'roKrnm.
Peoria baseball magnates last win
ler saw the nec-essity for retrenchment
and the program adopted met with
their approval. They realized that the
league wa3 on the verge of disruption
last spring more because ihe owners
were discouraged over financial losses
due to high salaries than for any other
reason. They saw that it would b
necessary to adopt a system by which
the game could at least be made to
pay its own way if th. Three-Eye
league were to be perpetuated. PossI
bly they did not realize at the time
just what it meant to retrench. Per
haps they did not stop then to reflect
that it would be necessary to dispose
of practically all the old expensive
team Peoria had in order to start
within the limits. But, at any rate.
Ihey were in favor of the changes, and
they got them. Had not such changes
been made it is very likely that there
would have been no Three-Eye league
this season, certainly not for manv
Somrlliinic of a Wjxtrrj-.
Just how President Sexton is to be
blamed because Peoria was unable to
keep its old men. while Rock Island
and Bloomington. due to having been
less extravagant in 10'iS, managed to
sepieez wiihin the limits with few
changes in the lineup, is hard to fig
Peoria, Decatur and Springfield all
suffered the reaction this year that
might be expected to follow the sort
of race they made for the flag last
year. Neither stopped at high sal
aries in the attempt to land ihe flag,
and in so doing all put a mortgage
upon their future that they this sea
son have been called upon to pay.
No town in basedjall can exjiect to be
a first division contender all the time.
All must take the fat along with the
lean. If the baseball public in any
city is too delicately constituted to
put up with the common portion, it
should go back to croquet and ping
pong. OIl im$e of lllnminB I in pi rr.
It is a common thing through the
season for losing teams to blame the
umpire. It puts the responsibility on
someone else's shoulders. Everylwdy
expects them to do it. By the same
token officers of the local associations,
when the fortunes of war do not deal
kindly with them, often go a step
higher ami blame the league officers.
It is a simple and easy way to dodge
responsibility and blame that is often
