game Wednesday. On the eve. of
breaking tamp all the regulars are in
first-class trim and "physically are
ready to start a big league campaign
right now. The games with tha.
minor leaguers will give the pitchers
plenty of work and there is little
chance of the men going stale.
With the shift in base of the Sox
squads today Doc "White and Jim
Scott join the first team, Mogridge,
Healon, Douglass and Wolfgang go
Ing to Gleason's aggregation. J
Scott and White have both done
'good work against the Venicend
Los Angeles teams. Scott has been
. especially effective and has twice
gone the route without difficulty. He
beat Venice yesterday, 13 to 3, giving
Dut six hits anfl whiffing eight bat
ters. Jim appears to have overcome
his wildness and has also developed a
slow floater which he mixes "with his
smoke. Right now Scott seems
primed for a good-season.
A casual examination of White's
record with the seconds shows no
wonderful pitching. He was jogged
for fourteen, safe blows by Venice last
Friday andjias been bumped in other
games. But Doc has shown he can
pitch his way through nine innings
and be strong at the finish. That was
all Callahan wanted to know. The
number of hits secured, off Doc, mean
nothing, as he is careful about his
spring work and seldom cuts loose in
'practice. Doc is again slated to be the
left-handed mainstay ofthe staff, a
position he has held for many sea
sons. Today the seconds play Sacramen-
to, Callahan directing them, and the
- regulars, under Harry Lord, battle Stj
Mary's College on the San Francisco
league grounds.
In yesterday's coast double-header
the Sox split even, losing to Oakland,
4 to 2, in the morning, and beating
"Frisco, 10 to 3, in the afternoon.
Walsh, Douglass, Smith, Lange and
Behz did the pitching, the Moose and
Smith pitching tight ball in the morn-,
ing game. All of Oakland s runs. were,
scored off Douglass. "
. Babe Borton, given his real name,
of Baker Borton since he rhas. be
come the' head of-'a family, soaked
four hits in the second game. Harry
Lord p'ofed three hits in the double
header, among them being a homer
and double. Johnston and Rath also
contributed some solid smacks.
Details are being arranged in Los
Angeles today for a return' bout
April 12 between Kayo Brown and
Bud Anderson, who fought a slashing
20-round draw, Saturday. Each man
was within one. punch of a knock
out, several times during the go.
Johnny Dundee has arrived on the
coast to start training for his fight
against Johnny Kilbane for the
feather title next month.
Phil Gossett, the young catcher se
cured by Manager Callahan from St
Phil Gossett
Joseph is making a desperate effort
to stick with the White Sox, but the
youngster is up against too much of
a fight. He must displace Nekher
S chalk, Kuhn or Easterly to win a
berth, and there is-little chance for
him to succeed. On any other team
Gossett would have an easy time of
it, but Caljs loaded with a pair of
the .best young catchers in the busi
ness. In yesterday's game against
Venice Gossett nmced a double and
