Philadelphia, Pa.. Feb. 17. J. Frank
lin Baker, hero of three world's seriee,
has quit baseball. This ttartling an
nouncement was made by Conr.i4
Mack, manager of the Athletics, at
the 11th annual banquet of the Phila
delphia Sporting Writers' association
last night. According to Mack ISaker
has definitely dccidexl to retire perma
nently from baseball. There is no al
luring Federal league offer.
The "home run king" will retire on
his laurels. When Manager Mack was
called upon to respond to a toast he
was applauded, and as toe aroes th
great multitude sang and cheered and
the name of Mack reverberated from
one end of the spacious hall to the
Cheering continued for 10 minutes.
When at last it subsided the leader of
the Athletics, in a trembling voire, ex
pre?sol his thanks for the kind recep
tion, and after comanenting on th'-
honors paid him and his asso iat s,
suddenly ceased speaking. After a
moment's pause he continued:
"Gentlemen, I am going to make an
announcement and it is very impor
tant. J. Franklin Baker has quit base
ball. He is now out of it for good.
I have been anticipating this move for
the last two seasons, but was greatly
depressed to have him decide upon it
just at this time. I need Baker, anil
it goes without saying that his place
will be hard to fill.
"In order to protect myself ami the
club I signed liaker to a three year
contract in 1914, but before the honn
run hero would sign he had this pro
viso inserted: 'If, at any time I desire
to quit the game, that I can do to and
will not be blacklisted.'

concluded that that was the best
thing I could do. and I signed him for
three years, with the clause inserii 1
as he demanded.
"Baker is going to retire to his farm.
Frank has accumulated quite a little
money during the last eight years. Hi
has been saving Ji is money and now
he is the owner of two big farms in
the. vicinity of Trappe. Md. He has
monev invested in other business and
a little suni in bant. He is fired
of the game and is sincere In his de
