EARLY SPRING GAMES IN THE NORTH OFTEN INCAPACITATE PLAYERS FOR SEASON'S WORK WiW & it m ii' lis 1 "BASEBALL CLUBS TAKE LONG CHANGE IN PLAYING GAMES IN COLD, CHILLY WEATHER Athletics and Phillies No Longer Indulge in Spring Series Because It Endangers the Participating Players AFTETt years of experience, somo of which wan of a distinctly bitter nature, .Connie Mock has decided that playing a spring series at home just prior to tho opening of tho American League season Is not a good thing for tho players. It Is possible that Hack knew this beforo ho decided not to piny tlio annual spring series with the Phillies In 1915. Nevertheless, both Mack and tho Phllly management realized that thq fans become eager to seo baseball about this season of tho year after having readvof tho teams' devolopmont In tho South. This fact caused them to Btago, along with virtually all tho other clubs In tho major leagues, a scries of games at a tlmo when tho players should bo nursing their arms and legs Instead of getting out In Inclement weather and running tho risk or losing all tho benefits of their training In tho Southern camps. As every ono knows, It was not tho Idea so much to pleaso tho public that . Inter and Intra scries wcro played In tho spring; but becauso tho managements wcro ablo to tnnko a good deal of money, which assisted them In def laying tho expenses of their spring training. The Phillies Have. Seen the Light Ono of tho first things that Pat Moran did when ho succeeded Charley Dooln ! ' as head of tho Phillies last winter was to call off tho spring games with tho ' Athletics. This was done, not becaueo Pat did not wish to play against tho Mackmen, nor becauso ho thought money could not be made, hut because lie , believed that In order to condition his team ho should slay In tho South an long , as possible and not take tho chance of Injuring his players by hnvlng them work hard ln"bad weather to win games for nothing but tho empty honor of tho Phila delphia championship. This year thcro was not a chanco for the Phillies and Athletics to get together hero for two reasons. In tho first place, neither Mack nor Moran cared I to play for tho sako of tho teams' condition. Secondly, tho managements of the i Phillies and Athletics had a dlsputo last winter which caused tho calling off of the proposed series In tho South. Tho Phillies wish Philadelphia fans to seo them first In action against a National Lcaguo club in the raco for tho flag. Consequtntly, tho majority of i tho players will not reach this city until next Monday night or Tuesday morn ; lng. Thero Is a gamo scheduled with "Washington next Monday. That con test ends tho training season. The Phillies then open hero on Wednesday with tho Giants.- Likewise, tho Athletics will not bo seen hero until nfter they make their ; first swing around tho Eastern end of tho Amcrlcnn League circuit, opening next AVednesday In Boston. Many Players Injured "by Cold Spring Weather How mnny plnyers have been injured In this city and In other cities by playing spring scries It Is lmposslblo to tell. Thcro Is no doubt that many of them , develop soro arms, Charley horses and other baseball diseases in theso early games, and In many cases they nro unablo to say Just where they did hurt them selves. Bad cold3 and often slight attacks of fever have been developed by J, players who took part In games hero in Philadelphia, Boston and New York J in tho wretched weather beforo tho dato of tho season's opening. Any ono can see, for example, that Brooklyn and Yankees would have been very toollsh to play a gnmo yesterday in tho weather they would h.ivo had , ' to face. It was very cold, penetrating and generally raw at Ebbcts Field. ', Not only that, but tho edge Is taken off tho fans' appetites by these games. Thoy do not go out to tho opening games and those following with tho samo dcslro to seo baseball when thoy havo contests. So, on tho whole. It appears by their efforts to corner tho coin market. ; Carroll Brown Ruined in a Local Exhibition Game In 1913 tho Athletics trained in Houston, Texas. Although tho team had a tough tlmo getting homo becauso of washouts that resulted from tho big floods that spring, they had good days In tho ; tlon. They had a long stay In the South, having left Philadelphia about Feb ruary 20. Carroll Brown, tho big right-hander from Atlantic City, looked particularly 4 good that year. Ills arm was In great Bhapo and ho was "buzzing 'em over" In J tho South with terrific speed. He was. In fact, one of tho most promising pitchers on tho staff, not oven excepting tho veterans Bender, Coombs nnd Plank. But Brown's superb condition proved his undoing. Tho Phillies lined up against tho Athletics on Saturday, April 5, 1913, at tho Philadelphia Ball Park. i Tho day was far worse than yesterday here. It wns colder, a stiff wind was blowing, nnd tho water-ladened atmosphero was extremely penetrating. Tho Mackmen scored two runs lnthe first Inning, but nfter that they were unablo , to cross tho rubber. Thero was blttor rivalry between the two teams, so that J when tho Phils tied tho score In tho ninth, Brown, becauso of his great condl- tlon, decided to continue In tho box. Tho result was that tho teams played to a 2-2 tlo, tho gamo going 18 Innings. And Brown pitched tho entire contest for the Athletics against Alexander, Chalmers and Brennan. Brown never recovered from that game. His arm never again was In per fect shape. In 1914, ho was released to tho New York Yankees, nnd now ho has been released by Donovan Just at tho tlmo when he should bo a great pitcher , at the height of his career. , 1 J ' No Attempt Made to Discredit Princeton There has been much comment In college circles regarding an article which appeared in these columns recently in which it was stated that Princeton's , opponents were handicapped when playing the Tigers at homo becauso of tho dlffcrenco In weight of the ball used In Tho article in question did not reflect on tho sportsmanship and fairness i or mo atnietic autnoriues at Princeton. used in ono of the games and the opposing team found it difficult to become accustomed to It. This is likely to happen, because two balls are mado official by tho basketball league; namely, the Spalding SI and tho Wood & Guest. Prince ton used the latter ono In tho gamo referred to, whllo the other team was ac customed to a Spalding. Tho rules stato that tho ball "must than 32 Inches In circumference and ounces In weight." It Is not known weight In tho game referred to, which to the players on the Garnet five. It was lighter than tho one they had been using. Tod Eberle, coach of tho Swarthmoro basketball team, has written a letter V. to the Sports Editor In which he explains "Tho ball used In the Swarthmoro-Princeton basketball game was lighter than tho ono wo were accustomed to, and It affected tho playing of my team considerably. I do not wish to present excuses or an alibi for our overwhelming defeat, however, nor do I question tho fairness of Princeton. That day Princeton defeated us without half trying and was In shape to beat any team In tho country. Whether the Spalding ball was used or not made little difference In the result. Kept Missing Goal After Goal "However, I was amazed at tho start of the gamo when Jack Sproul, an ac curate foul shooter, missed goal after goal from the 15-foot mark. Captain Harry then tried It and the result was the same. Between the halves I asked what was the matter and was told that the ball seemed to ba light. I asked Mr. Fisher, tl.e referee, to weigh the bail and he turned me over to Doctor Baycroft, a member of the Rules Committee. Doctor Raycroft told me that Princeton had used tho Bime stylo of ball for years and It had given fine service In the way of wear and holding Its shape. When I finished talking with Raycroft. the second half started and the ball was not weighed." Naturally, if Princeton did use a lighter ball, the Tigers were handicapped away from home as much as the visitors were at Princeton, A difference of three ounces In weight will affect the accuracy of a foul thrower, and It Is probable that euch was the case. -Hence, as was stated In the beginning, there never was any attempt to ac cuse Princeton of not playing fair with the other teams In the Intercollegiate League. But to prevent further argument it would be a good plan for tha Inter collegiate Basketball League to take steps to standardize the ball more than they have at present. We read with Interest of the large sums demanded by Fred, Fulton to engage In ring encounters. The press 'agent doesn't seem to realize that confederate money Is. no longer negotiable. had a tasto of tho gamo in tho exhibition that tho club owners loso In tho long run Lono Star Stato and wcro In good condl- the game.
