, WILL OPEN MONDAY.
He Twin-City Base. Ball Team to
be Home Tomorrow.
Arraasesarat . Jbade for Opfiug of
the Base Hall taaa la Thi City
X iame Veatcrday.
Monday will be a red letter day from a
base ball standpoint la Rock Island, as it
will mark the city's return to profession
al base ball which hat not been witnessed
Vre for several years. Those who have
interested themselves on the work of ea
teblishlng a club in order to give oar peo
pie an opportunity to see some good
games of the national sport have labored
earnestly and in return a crowd should be
present at the opening game that will as-.
rare them that our citizens appreciate
their efforts. The management has done
its best to secure a nine of sober, gentle
manly ball players, and will tolerate no
sank or ungentlemanly conduct on the
leld. The other clubs in the league are
all first class, and as good ball will prob
be played on the home grounds this sea
son as anyone would care to see. Turn
oat everyone Monday and yell for the
boys in blue.
The opening of the I I league Monday
at Twin-City ball park will be attended by
a suitable demonstration. There will be
a parade with music, etc., and as our boys
in blue enter the grounds the band will
play. The tune may not be "See the
Conquering Hero," etc., but some other
air equally appropriate will be discoursed
The mayors and common councils of
both cities, and ather prominent
citizens will honor the occasion by their
presence. President Hodges and other
local ball cranks will don plug hats, and
the eyent will be a memorable one beyond
a question. The opposing team will come
from Jacksonville, but that will not mske
any difference. There will be an im
mense crowd present from the three cities
and a good game is assured.
Rain prevented yesterday's game at
Quincy so that oar boys had their firs
day of rest since they started out. It
was the only rainy day encountered on1
the trip, and consequently our boys have
aad constant practice which will un
doubtedly be of incalculable benefit to
them when they reach home. Manager
Sage has been playing first bsse during
the last few games and Zeis has been do
ing all the work behind the bat.
President Hodges today instructed
35 anager Ssge to sign McGuirk, of last
year's Sacramento team. He is a first
baseman of the first water and a corking
ood hitter, and with him on the first bag,
and another good pitcher that will be
signed in a day or two, the Twin-City
boys will soon get into the push.
Of course the boys are down at the bot
tom of the list,but when it it remembered
that they are playing away from home
and started out with ao practice what
ever, they should not be expected to be
among the leaders but with a crowd of
the fans at their backs on Monday they
will put up an article of ball that will be
a surprise party to the boys from lunatic
