will have to confess that it looks like
the Athletics and the Giants will be
'he principal participators in the
world's series, scheduled for early
I3all players like to play in the
world series. Not alone for the reason
that they are thus made the center of
public notice and also have flattering
pieces put in the paper about them,
but they are also made the recipients
of large pieces cf change as their
share of the gate reeeip's. This
money is theirs to do as they will
with it. Last season the Boston and
New York players were handsomely
rewarded. The attendance at the 1912
world series was greater than any be
fore and of course the gate receipts
greatly exceeded ail previous. So
that every player last year received a
sum falling not very short of a king's
ransom In the matter of enormity. At
the close of the' world series each
player who finds be has grown agree
ably plump in the region of the wallet,
reposes for the nonce in the lap of
luxury, as set forth in the accompany
ing illustration. Three of four thou,
for a few days of healthful outdoor
exercise is very nice wages.
The Giants and the Athletics have
met before on t.he baseball battlefield.
It will be remembered that in 1911
they had a little argument about this
world championship thing and at that
time the Athletics managed to put the
Giants against the ropes. With the
memory of the sad affair still poig

After poring over the dope .a while
and poking in among dusty batting
averages and games won and lost we
emerge with the impression that the
Athletics have just about as good a
chance as they had in 1911. McGraw's
statement seems to be, in a sense, re
moved from fact. Or at leact if the
Athletics have gone back the Giants
have too, and their relative strength
remains the same. In 1911 Connie
had it on Muggsy in the matter of hit
ting strength, and while the Athletics
may seem to have slipped a little they
still lead the Giants. In the pitching
department the Giants seem to have
the shade, although the Athletics have
some young material Houck, Brown,
Bush and Shawkey that will no
doubt strengthen them wonderfully.
Viewing the thing as a whole, it is
hard to see where the Mackmen have
gone back very much. Maybe Muggsy
was right but then again, maybe he

HEAVY THIS YEAR
Cincinnati, Aug. 30. Exclusive of
those players obtaiued by the major
league clubs from minor league teams
through optional agreement, 202 play
ers have either been traded or pur
chased by major league teams from
each other, or from minor league teams
during the last year, according to a
list handed down by the National
baseball commission yesterday. A
large majority of these represent pur
chases from the minor leagues, some
of these plavcrs not yet having re
ported to their teams.
The American league cr.rried off the
honors, 101 players coming to them
during the last year, while an even 100
either entered the ranks of "he Na
