Griffmen to Open Spring * j
Road Triji With 3 Games
Being Booked in Havana
? Everything is settled, insofar as the Nationals' training grounds
is concerned for 1920. Word was received from Tampa yesterday,
that arrangements had been completed for the Washington team to
<!o its spring training in that Southern city, and by the time the
Nationals arrive the grounds will bo put in first-class condition.
President Griffith notified the officials at Augusta that everything
was off regarding training in the city that has housed the Nationals
lor the past couple of seasons.
The president is also hard at work arranging three games to be
played in Cuba. He has written officials in that city asking them to
wire him at once about having the Nationals and Keds come there
for games, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, March 27, 28 and 29.
Opea at Tnmpn.
This would permit +tie two trams
to return to the State* on Tuesday,
and" book an exhibition game at
Tampa. Then the two clubs would
start on. their journey to Washing
Uaufi will likely be played at
? iainesville, Fla.. where the Gianta
played last Wesson; Mobile. Mont
gomery. Birmingham. Chattanooga.
Atlanta. Augusta. Columbia. Peters
burg, and Washington for Saturday
and Sunday. This will make a tour
of sixteen games between the two
Hubs. As the arrangements are loi
but fourteen, it is hardly likely that I
lousiness; Manager Bancroft will
object to a couple of extra games,
especially as the teams will visit
It was this gentleman who first
introduced the game in that coun
try. In 1875 Bancroft took the first
American team to that part of th?
world and the citizens of Cuba al
ways credit him with being the
. fathej- of baseball in their country, j
HoHaHt? Will Vasp.
Now that the place to train has J
been arranged for. President Grif
fith is writing all the above cities \
to see if the dates he wants can w- ;
booked. This will take a month at j
least, and until then no announce- j
r' ments regarding the complete trip:
can be announced.
It is more than likely that George |
Moriarty. the American league um- j
pire. will be invited to take the trip
and officiate in all the games.
Arrangements were also complet
ed by President Griffith to have a i
handsome souvenir score cardboard
printed, giving facts and records of !
all the players on the two teams, j
and records of the xame. ThL?
should prove very interesting to the
fans en route.
Director* to Meet.
Everything has been completed
for the board of directors meeting
to be held at the club's headquarters
next Saturday, at 11 a. m.. when the
old officials will be replaced by the
new board.
Many of the fans are sorry to see
President Minor leave the club. a*
he has always proven satisfactory,
hut as his business will prevent
him from accepting any office, of
course his wishes will he complied
Fan* Waat MrUridr.
s Letters are pouring into head
quarters congratulating Piesident
Griffith on his announcement that if
he should decide to retire from the
position as manager that he would
make no mistake if George McBride
is appointed ?n his stead. *
Many have taken it for granted
that this is to be the case. The :
fact is that President Griffith has
not as yet fully decided what he will
do about handling the team as man
ager. nor has he at any time an
nounced that he will appoint Mc- ?
Bride as manager. It was The Her
ald that suggested that McBride
wdtfld make a good man if GriiT in- I
tended making anyone manager.
Selecting a man as manager of
a baseball club is a gamble. Take
the case of such players as Mathew- j
son. Herxog. Tinker. Ever*. Coombs.
Hal Chase and others who were
looked upon as going to prove stars
as leaders Resuljt?every on** of
them fell down.
Ru*her Made Ciood.
Then along comes a bitsher. like ?
Clarence Rowland, who had ne?'er j
been heard of. and who did not kmA
the style of playing the game in fast j
company. What did he do. Won the ;
world championship.
So it is not always the players who j
are looked upon as being able to n a'te j
a good manager because they were 1
good. hard, and willing ball players
under some other man.
Some of the above fell down be< ause
they were too nasty with their i
tongues, while a couple failed be
cause they were too easy. But be it '
as it may. they did not mak#">uccess
ful managers.
One of the best points in any play- !
er's favor is when he has been se- i
lected by the manager he i* playing
under as his assistant.
Mae a Real Leader.
I will take the record of two men j
who look like they will have ai
chance to pilot teams next year. One '
of them. George Gibson, is already on
the job. while another and one who f
everyone. including yours truly. J
thinks will make a great leader, j
that man is George McBride.
I have known George personally for
IS years and 1 can truthfully say that
I never saw a youngster who. when 1
he first broke into the came hick in
1**5. showed more ability a< a
worker than this same fellow.
He has proven it in the past, when
intrusted with the managerial duties'
thrust upon him by his present boss, i
Clark Griffith. ,
I was talking to one of the Wash
ington players at the New York meet
ing and what he told me opened my
eyes. He d*d not know I knew Mc
Bride. but he said a mouthful when?

An elderly gentleman walked into
our little office yesterday and greet
ed us with a merry ha-ha. His
first remark was; "l*o | look like
a dead one?"
We had to acknowledge that lie
tooked f^r from such. "Well. * said he.
jou stated the other day that I had]
died several months ago and I just
stopped in to prove to you that I am
not yet ready to be buried."
After taking a good look at the
aforesaid gent, and one glance at
that pair of hands with every finger
badly bent, it dawned upon us that
we were either looking at some horny
handed son of swat or a ball player
of the olden day*.
The tatter guess wa* right anil who
?lo you supple we had dead and I
suppose buried by this lime. Paul
Mines. Thi* old warrior iloes not look

In talking about the unassisted
triple play that h.i* heen i-redit?-i| to
him for years we mentioned that lie.
instead of his old side kick. Sweez* y.
was dead. Mr. Sweezey was the name
intended to lie written, but some
tiiy. even sporting writers have
been known to make mistakes,
and in this particular ease, 1 am
more than pleased to make the cor
lection. and state rixht out in the
meeting that Paul Hines Is far from
being a dead one.
With his gray mustache, and his
hair very much tinned with white,
he does not look like he did
when he was one or the creates!
outfielders in the country years aso.
when he was covering the outfield
for the old Chicago club. He was a
ball player then, as fast as thev
made them, and how that bird could
hit. He was some swatsmith with
that old piece of wood.
Hines has a pair of hands that look
like meat hooks. "I did not get them
from catching flies in the outfield."
replied the old player, "l thought I
could play second base but after hav.
ing every finger broke on both hands
I decided as a second baseman I was
a good outfielder. You see.'* he said
?we did not have gloves those days
like they have at the present time
and that makes all the difference In
the world.
lloo.lir.it Old Stars.
Hines could not scy enough about
the old players who were stars in
his days, when pitchers worked every
day and catchers who would have a
broken finger would not lav otr All
they did was to have some tape
wrapped around their finger and go
back and catch as though nothing
I would like to see some of those
old bo\ s with the smoke they showed
working today. They wouid prove
that plenty of work was better than
working every fifth or sixth day I
They have too many pitchers at the
present tlmej Four men are all that
are needed and when they are worked i
in turn better results are secured !
I do not want to tell Manager Urif-I
tlth how to run his club, but If I were
manager I would send that star or
all stars. Walter Johnson, in to pitch
every third day. He need* that
amount of work to keep him right. !

Claim of Cliques Causes
Sharp Trouble at Yale
Funny talcs were whispered around Boston before the Yale-Har
vard game.
Some of tlie knowing ones said the Yale players had to have indi
vidual dressing rooms to prevent a riot.
But the stories of dissension in the Elis' ranks were branded as
"bear" stories.
They were "bear" stories, it was developed. But the bear had
real, honest-to-gosh claws.
Buried under an avalanche of criticism from all sides, Head Coach
Al Sharpe has offered to resign.
Clique* In (l?h.
Ho hinted at a clique between thei
Sheffield contingent and the aca- j
demie members of the squad that
had the team pulling at both ends
of the well-known race.
Herb Kenipton's friend:. icenteJ
the criticism of the l>!ond quarter
hack for faciltv judtrment in the
Princeton and Harvard games.
Thov claim d that Kempt on called
for Hraden to hit tackle when the
hall was on Harvard's one'-yard line
and that in ft tend of following the
signal the fullback charged into
center and lost the biug?-st chance
to score.
Braden's friends then joined in
the l"?ud. The big fullback said
they %vere all wrong, from Coach
Sharp" down, and *hat if they didn't
stop making him th? goat of the af
fair he would open np and teli a
few interesting things
f'nllaltmi l)i?.npprnr??.
Meanwhile. <';ip a in Tim Callahan
disappeared. and ?t was breezed,
fcround tli?- ramp".- that he hud gone!
to Seattle to persuade Tad Jones to |
let urn and take charge of football, i
Sharp" then d?-claied he would be j
willing t>? cancel a three-year con
tract and rexiign If his regime
would be th?* (uiiw of a split in the
athletic ranks
