BOXING SPORTS OF ALL SORTS BASEBALL'
Tomorrow morning the Cubs hop
the rattler for the training camp at
Tampa, Fla. But all the athletes who
it is hoped are to wear Weeghman
colors this summer-wjll not be aboard
Tom Seaton is still in New York
and says he will not go near Tampa
unless his contract is materially
changed. There is no argument over
salary, but Tom wants several side
issues embodied in the agreement,
such as payment of his wife's railroad
fare on all the team's trips. That
was a clause in his contract with the
Brooklyn Feds, but it was taken out
of the paper sent him by the Cubs.
Eventually agreement with Seaton
will be reached, but it is imperative
that Tom get to the training camp
as soon as possible if he is to be valu
able to the North Siders at the start
of the season. Last year Tom lost
some of his effectiveness and it was
understood he was not in good shape.
He must do better work this season
than last to be an asset.
ftlax Flack is still holding out, but
the little outfielder will fix his affairs
before morning and will be among
those departing. Max has made his
reputation in the Federal league.
When he joined the Chifeds he was
not highly regarded. In fact, he only
came into his own last year, and now
wants an increase in salary.
While the terms of his contract are
not known, it is not believed he gets
great deal of coin, compared to some
of his mates, and Tinker and Weegh
man win probably agree to a boost.
Flack is not only a good mechanical
ballplayer, but he puts his heart in
his work, and that counts f or a whole
Cub headquarters today were busy.
Athletes were dropping in all morning
ito report their presence. Claude Hen
diix and Gene Packard, pitchers, will
be in some time this afternoon. Both
reported by wire that they were on
toeirwax. Tjie-only jnan missing will
be those who are going directly to
Tampa from their homes. Under
this classification are Archer, Laven
der, Zabel, Schulte and a flock of
southerners. These fellows are al
ways in condition when they report,
as each has had a few days of pre
liminary work on the old home place.
Today the musical instruments and
billiard table were installed in the spe
cial train, and all is ready for the bell.
George Stovall says the settlement
he made with the Federal league was
possible only because of the good
treatment he received from Charley
Weeghman and Harry Sinclair. He
gives these two men fulsome praise
for their fairness in taking care of
him, and says organized baseball
overlooked a bet when it refused to
make a place in the ranks fnr Hip
Tulsa oil magnate.
Reports from Toledo are to the ef
fect that Roger Bresnahan will se
cure control of the Cleveland fran
chise of the American ass'n in a cou
ple of days and move the team to To
ledo. Benny Kauff is still a hold-out and
says he won't join the Giants until
Harry Sinclair gives him $5,000 and
the New York club comes through
with a sililam amount.
