ammmammmtmmimimmmmmmm probably will. Larry has batted the small town pitchers with great vigor, but he has not taken many chances in covering ground around the key stone. This is because the diamonds so far encountered have 'been hill sides, useless for anything else. Manager Mitchell is a close mouthed party and has not definitely indicated the line-up of his outfield. Williams and Wolter appear assured of stations, but the third berth is a contest between Flack and Leslie Mann. Mann has a game leg and Flack is temporarily at work with the first team. Mitchell would like to use Flack in the lead-off position, but it is hard to displace Mann, who was the best fielder in the National at the close of the 1916 parade. It may be that both of these fellows will become regulars in time, and one 1916 idol will be shattered. Flack had a superstitious hunch last year that the van of the batting order was bad for him. He claimed he could not hit effectively in that position. But the fact remains that Flack is one of the best waiters on the club and is also as good as any of the players once he reaches first base. Twenty-five hits were made by the regulars yesterday against Oklahoma City. Doubles, triples and homers were plentiful, and every man with the squad contributed his bit. Deai, continuing to hit in the olean-up notch, poked a single, double and homer. Doyle knocked two doubles and a single. The finish fight between Ty Cobb and Buck Herzog is indicative of the paths the Giants will tread this year. McGraw's people are cocky and will be riding every team they come in contact with. As a consequence, they will find plenty of trouble, for there are belligerents with other teams. It is more than likely that some member of the club will be out of the game a considerable portion of the time through suspension feom the president of the league. And if the club runs out of opponents among other outfits, they always have themselves to furnish amuse ment. The collection of tempera ments under McGraw's wing is not designed to go through a season in a peaceful state. Cobb's victory lifts him out of the class of John Evers and McGraw. He has at last won a fight. No action will be taken by the league presidents regarding the bat tle. The teams have arranged their own truce and the game between the Giants and Tigers was not under control of the national commission. In the roller hockey match be tween Racine and the Chicago All Stars at RIverview last night a near riot terminated the affair, which was a one-to-one tie. All bets were de clared off. Red Williams, a Chica goan, was rushing the bill close to the ropes when some one swung on his jaw. Williams started swinging his club in the general direction from which the blow had come and a gen eral row started. The management restored order after having half a dozen battling pairs separated.
