M. H. Sexton of Rock Islan 1. pret!-
dent or tn? .National Associ; io'i -r
Minor Leagues, said in his opinion
MollDe tK r,Pe for Professional :.a;,e
ban. lie jam tne factory ieau.-i j
merely niaztng tne way ana creating
a demand for numbership in one of
the minor leasu'.. The factory league,
he said, was ttVjonly one of its kind
in the country, so far as he Knev, and
the success that had attended its ef
forts was a pretty good indicatim that
professional baseball in the city would
be well patronized.
Mr. Sexton told cf the organi.In of
the association, of which he is hrvid,
by seven men in 1901, and its growth
till it now includes practically evory
baseball league in the country o'ltsMe
of the majors. There are now 40
leagues with 300 clubs and 6,000 play
ers. In 1912 $5,000,000 was paid out
for running expenses.
Mayor M. R. Carlson, the th'rd speak
er, told of the relation of the citv ad
ministration and the factory league,
a spirit of co-operation prevailing on
both sides. Growing reminiscent he
mentioned the names of old time base
ball stars who played here end com
pared the conditions under which they
worked with those of the present day.
F. E. Pierson. retiring president of
the league, introduced the speakers,
and presented the winning club with
the pennant and cup. Alfred Hattren,
manager of the Marseilles team, re
sponded. S. (L Maoe, .the new presi
dent, spoke briefly and presented Mr.
Pierson with a framed picture of the
12 clubs In the league and the officers
of the circuit. About 250 attended
PICK ALL STAR TEAM
FROM FACTORY LEAGUE
An a:i s'ar team of factory league
players has "oee;i picked as follows:
Pitchers Stropes, Velies; Greko,
Deere & Co.; Pavil, Silvis shops.
Catchers F. Smith, Velies; John
! Smith, Marseilles.
j First base Gregg. Marseilles.
j Second base Wynn. Silvis shops.
' Third base Malseed. Marseilles.
: Shorts' cp Maher, Maroeilies.
, Left field Briggs, Ve ies.
j Center field Little, Marseilles.
! Right: fieid Crippen. Deere & Co.
I The opinions of umpires and of-
i ficers of the league were canvassed
in making up the team. Of course
; there is a possibility that the verdict
was not altogether fair in all cases,
but where there was a difference of
; opinion the majority decided. The
J Marseilles team being winner of the
! pennant, naturally the greatest num
! ber of all stnr players w-ere credited
