LUSH'S BATTING EYE
It Improed in the I"ut x0th of
Making Up the Schedule for the
NOTES OF THE PLAYERS
During the recent flying visit of Mr. Earl
Wagner to Washington he, of course, called
on President Young of the league, and in
cidentally went over the records of the
Washington players. It will be a surprise
to many local followers of the game to
learn that "Billy" Lush, of whom great
tings are hxpected this season, batted at
over a 300 clip during the last month of
the season of 96. It Is upon this abewing.
that Mr. Wagner granted the lttle right
fielder an Increase of salary over I at year,
and the local magnate asks that local en
thustasts suspend judgment upon Lush un
til he gets down to work the coming sea
son. Cartwright has also gotten himself
Into first-class condition: In fact, the big
first baseman is in better condition than
he has been for years, and says that if
he does not show a big improvement over
last season he will quit the league. This is
a bold assertion on Cartwright's part, but
gives indications of returning confidence,
and should he bat as his friends believe he
can there will be no kick coming on ac
count of the man at the initial bag. Tom
Brown is also in frst-class condition, and
if he plays as well as he did last season,
barring the period in which he had a bad
attack of charley horse, everybody will
rest content, as Tom's headwork and base
running are needed to help the club along
In a quarter where it is notably weak. At
third base Charley Reilly will be given a
convincing trial, and should he fail young
Wrigley will be placed on the third bag,
and should he fail to keep up the pace to
the satisfaction of Mr. Wagner a strong
third baseman with a reputation that en
titles him to a thorough trial will be quick
ly secured. Harvey Smith cannot join the
club before the 1st of June, but should this
plucky little man play in the form he did
last year it will take a remarkable third
baseman to keep him out of the game.
No trades of any kind will be considered by
Mr. Wagr.er. but this does not imply that
the club will not be strengthened should
the necessity arise. The owner of the local
club has a secret up his sleeve that will
be an eye-opener to the local enthusiasts,
but for satisfactory reasons the news has
to be held back for some time yet until
contemplated plans are rounded out and
completed. Considerable adverse criticism
has been indulged in by the Washington
"fans" of late on account of the apparent
listlessness of the Senators' leaders, but
this will be proved to be unjust, and when
the proper time arrives it will be demon
strated that Mr. Wagner need not take the
dust of any of the league magnates when
diplomatic skill and base ball sagacity are
taken into consideration.
The thing most interesting to the base
ball magnates, after the arrangement of
their teams, is the make-up of the schedule
of championship games. There is a great
deal more in that than the average person
would believe. Of course, the teams come
first to the pyblic, but the magnate has his
eye on the schedule as well. He is looking
to get as much as possible out of It. He
wants all the Saturdays that can be work
ed in at home, and as many from home as
can be conveniently forced into the sched
ule. Then he wants all the best holiday at
tractions at home, and to get the best pay
ing cities on the road. The public knows
little about these things, and cares still
less about them, as long as they get a good
game of ball. The work of preparing this
schedule rests with President Young, as it
has been found to be the better plan to
trust to his fairness and judgment than to
a committee, each member of which would
naturally try to secure dates that would
benefit his club. It Is a very thankless job,
no matter how one takes it, as the work
seldom pleases everybody. Some one al
ways has a kick coming and if he thinks
he has received any the worst of it "Uncle"
Nick will come in for a "roasting." He will
be accused of all manner of things in gen
eral, and in particular of favoring all the
other clubs except his. Of course, some
clubs are favored more than others, or at
least it looks that way to an uninterested
person, and no amount of explanation will
make the matter look otherwise. The
meeting of the league to indorse the sched
ule for the coming season will be held in
Baltimore, Thursday, February 25, and all
sorts of rumors are flying about as to the
outcome of that gathering, but it is a fore
gone conclusion that little will be done out
side of the adoption of the schedule and a
trade or two that may or may not border
on the sensational. Nobpdy is permitted to
see the schedule until it is brought before
the meeting, and it is all guess work to
place the clubs on the big holidays and
opening days. The trips west will be on the
same general idea as last year.
That there is a contemplated deal on be
tween the St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago
ard Louisville clubs all the western writers
believe. Every one of the above mentioned
clube can be strengthened in certaIn poet
tlons and an interchange of players would
be a good thing for all concerned. Both
sections of the league, the east and west,
have in a manner become clannish, and as
a result it is a hard matter to get a good
player away from either section. The east
ern wing is decidedly stronger than the
west and for this reason, if for no other,
the magnates beyond the Alleghenies should
stick together. For instance, Chicago might
trade a man to Louisville, and then to St.
Louis. Cleveland needs an additional hard
hitting fielder and Louisville has a surplus
in this line. St. Louis needs a good second
baseman and Plttsburg can spare a man
to fill the bill. Through these changes the
St. Louis club may be braced up so as to
be an attraction in the eastern as well as
the western section of the league, and not
only one club be benefited, but all would
come In for a share of the spoils. Cincin

such a trade taken place It would have
been a hard mater few the club to got in

day and McIntyre as extra players, the
club will come nearer than it dM last year
to carrying off the coveted trophy. One
thing is cure, If a sensation develops in the
big league beor. the coming ses opens
t will come from the west. Everything is
serene at the other end, but matters look
blue out around St. Lois. With a good
club In that city $00 would be cleared
while $10 is being made- in Cleveland or
Louisville. The talk of doing away with
Sunday ball in the mound city is all bosh.
The bill that recently passed the lower
home of the state legislature has yet to
go through the senate, and then to the
governor, and there Is little likelihood that
It will ever again see the light of day.
Von der Ahe is hustling like a good fellow
and It Is to be hoped that he will get what
he is after.
Because "Scrappy" Joyce made, such a
wonderful finish with the New Yorkb some
of the enthusiastic followers of the club are
predicting championship honors the coming
season. The Giants played just as much
ahead of their speed in the latter part of
the season as they did below their speed in
the early part of the struggle. The Giants
at the best should come under the wire
next fall about fourth, unless they get
Rusle or a man In exchange for him who
is fully as good, If hot better, than the big
boy from Indiana. The New Yorks are left
hand batters and they would do well to have
a first-clas left-hand pitcher. In getting
one they would not only strengthen the
team on the inside, but on the outside as
well- With a first-class left-hander on the
team like Breitenstein they would not have
to go against him with their long row of
left-handed hitters. What If the Rusie
problem should be solved by a trade of the
thunderbolt for the auburn-haired left
hander? Stranger things have happened.
This might come to pass. The bad feeling
between Freedman and Brush should not
enter Into the question. Brush Is willing
to a certainty to make the trade, and if
Joyce can have his way Freedman will
settle an embarrassing problem for the
league by getting Rusle off his hands, and
also strengthen two clubs, the New Yorks
about 15 per cent and the Cincinnatis about
25 per cent. Without at least one more
crackerjack fielder the New York aggrega
tion with the best kind of luck will not be
very much inside the first division. They
need an outfielder badly. Stafford is out
classed by two such men as Tiernan and
Our own Winnie Mercer has been talking
again, and has the following to say to a
western writer about his experience In the
pitcher's position. Mercer says that a
young pitcher can get more valuable tips
on how to pitch effective ball by watching
the work of a seasoned pitcher in a game
of ball than he can in throwing his arm out
of joint in an effort to perfect himself
through the medium of practice. The theory
may work well enough in "Winnie's" case,
for he is an observing and clever pitcher,
but in nine cases out of ten practice Is the
only thing that will benefit a youngster. It
is easy enough to sit by and see how it is
done, but It is decidedly another thing to
do it yourself. The stern reality knows a
theory for a twisting ball. It might be
added that Mercer is expected to arrive in
Washington next week, and will doubtless
be one of the ornaments of the league
meeting in Baltimore the week following.
That Mercer is still a single man will be
good news to hundreds of his admirers of
the fair sex.
Notes of the Game.
Fred Clarke of the Louisvilles refuses to
sign for less than $2,400, and the manager
of that club talks of beginning the season
without this sterling player. It appears to
be a case of not knowing a good thing
when they see it. A man rated as being
worth $10,000 Is surely worth the limit.
One of the best posted base ball men in
the city made the prediction last Wednes
day evening, while surrounded by several
profeasional players, that the Boston club
would finish lower down this season than
last. He said that Manager Selee and
Pitcher 'Stivetts would have to be let go
before the club developed Its full strength.
Base ball is rapidly growing in popularity
in Great Britain. There are two base ball
associations in London, one for seniors and
another for juniors. Each has four clubs.
The best base ball grounds are lodated at
Derby. They were constructed at a cost of
$35,000. There are nearly twenty-five teams
in the vicinity of Derby. The college boys
as yet refuse to touch our national game,
sticking closely to cricket.
A dispatch from Louisville denies that
George Miller, the catcher, has been re
leased. About half a dosen others are
bound to go, however.
The late Charley Radbourne's work of
pitching nearly fifty consecutive games,
with a total of about eighty-five during the
season, has never been equaled, and is not
likely to, as a pitcher's arm is too valuable
these days. Jim McGuire's record as a
catcher in 1805 will stand for many a long
Ed. Hanlon fills the shoes of that most
envied of mortals, "a contented man." His
champion Baltimore team is complete for
the coming season. He wants no more or
no less than he has at present. He will
enter the field with the players he has at
present under contract and reservation, and
has announced that he feels surer of tak
ing his fourth successive pennant than he
did any of the other three.
With Eagle-eyed Beckley and Jake Sten
zel already gone, and Blerbauer and Lyons
on the cards for a trade, the Pittsburg
club will come on the field this season with
a badly mixed up team. Perhaps the
change is a wise one, but It generally takes
a whole season to break in four or five new
men on a team.
It wouldn't surprise a great many fol
lowers of individual averages if that grand
pair, Cy Young and George Cuppy, should
fall short of putting up the great game
they have been doing for Cleveland for the
past four or five years. Young and Cuppy
are the most liberal contributors on the
Cleveland team to the great record made
by the Spiders. Should either of these
twtrlers falter the Cleveland lads will have
a hard time getting inside or even near
that Temple cup money next fall.
Harry Mace, the well-known local ex
pitck'er and ball player, is negotiating with
President. Ban Johnson and Pat Powers
of the Western and Eastern leagues for
the pcsltion of umpire for the coming' sea
son. Mace has a record of four consecu
tive stuccessful seasons in the minor
leagues. He has umpired in the Texas,
Virginia, Atlantic and Eastern leagues.

The 3-mfe handicap race at the Conven

but he did not spurt until the eighteenth
lap, and was unable to catch the flying boy,
Cassin winning by about two feet.
This is the first race young Cassin has
started in, and his work shows that he has
a future before him in this line of 'sport.
At no time did he slow down except at one
corner on the fourteenth lap, and it was
plainly seen that he was not in the best of
condition. Stites has not been training, and
was not in the best condition. A handicap
race, of course, does not detract from the
champion's standing, and he still holds a
large share of the admiration of those who
attend the rink. Morris had not skated
since the two-mile event in the champion
ship series, and so was not fit to enter. Yet
the race was exciting and hotly contested
and was witnessed by a large gathering,
which gave hearty encouragement to the
fleet men on the ice.
The Washington Athletic Club and Car
roll Institute major league teams rolled
a set of tenpins on the alleys of the for
mer last night, and each club won a game.
In the first game the Washingtons put up
a score of 606 to 655 by the Carrolls, and
won by 41 pins.
In the second game the Carrolls put up
a score of 758 to 750 by the Washingtons,
and won by only 2 pins. This was the
closest and most exciting game rolled in
the league series this season, and was only
decided in the last box when Armstrong
of the Carrolls made a spare, while Kidd
of the Washingtons broke. This game was
the first one that the Carrolls have won in
the Washingtons' alley this season. Har

Kidd made the highest score of the even
ing, 180; and the best average for his side,
168 1-2. Rice rolled the highest score for
the Carrolls, 179. and the best average for
the evening, 165. Difficult spares were

evening of March 9, and the wind up will
occur soon thereafter, perhaps a few post
