r BASE BALL, FOR THE WEEK.
The race continues to bo a hot one.
Wo are all after the rag known hb the Pennant.
TheCocrier this week publishes the batting averages of the
Lincoln Club including the game of Wednesday.
Omaha, who has more pitchers than any other club in the associa
tion, has got still another one; his name is Abbey and he comes from
Chicago and in his first game he showed up in fine form and will do
much to pull the Omahas out of the hole.
If Pequigney is released he will find no trouble catching on with
some one of the other clubs as he is without doubt the fastest short
stop in tbe Western Association and the only cause that can be
given for nis release is the fact that he is unable to hit the ball at
the proper time.
In conversation with The Codkiek, Louie Baltz declares that he
will quit base ball at the end of this week and will accept a position
in the sheriff's office at his home in California. Louio haB many
friends who will be sorry to have him leave but all are glad to know
that he is getting a good position.
During this year Lincoln has had the following players on its pay
roll: Lawrence, Devereaux, Pequigney, Ebright, Hughes, Sullivan
McCarthy McKibben, McCann, McGreavy, McQuaid, McMakin
Lookabaugh, Speer, Mertes, J. Johnson, Youngy Johnson, Barnes
Kimerer, Ayfei, Dunn, Corbett, Baltz, Wood, and the three new
men, Whitehead, Sweeney and Powers.
There has been several changes in the make up of the clubs of the
Western association during the past week and nearly every club in
the association is doing something to strengthen its make up. St.
Joe has four new men. There are Kling, Feenan, Graney and Tub
Welch, who will be remombered in Lincoln as the big catcher, who,
during the season of '87 played with Leavenworth. Jacksonville
has a new catcher who hails from the Eastern League, his name is
Peoria has signed Red Armstrong who was replaced on the St
Joe team by Tub Welch. Manager Flynn has gone east to look for
some pitching talent Quincy is still in hard luck, Munyan, who is
one of their best men, being laid up from the injury he received dur
ing the game here Monday. While all these clubs have been getting
new players Manager Ebright has not been asleep. He has signed
three of the best infielders of the Eastern League, namely. Powers,
Whitehead and Sweeney. Powers will replace Jimmy Sullivan at
firet base. Whitehead will go to third and Sweeney will tak3 up his
position as short All of these players are sluggere and with the ex
ception of Whitehead have never been seen in Lincoln. Whitehead
will be remembered as the third baseman who played in Leaven
worth during the season of '86. Pete Sweenew is an old timer having
played in the national league. Just who Manager Ebright will re
lease is not known.
