MANAGERS AND OWNERS

Holyoke Fred Winkler
Northampton Gil Edwards
What will the Connecticut League
look 'ike this year with a bunch of
new men holding down jobs as mana
gers? Every club around the cir
cuit will have a new man to hold the
reins except the champions Hartford
crew and Jack Zeller band of Ponies.
Over New Haven way, Owner Cam
eron has gotten rid of George Bone,
with his rough and ready talk, and
has substituted his crack pitcher, Bill
Carrick. This is Bill's first try at the
managing game. What he will do is
a question. If he is given free rein,
it is probable that he will work out a
winning team. The Elm City fans
yarn for that lost rivalry which ex
isted between the Bridgtports and the
New Havens, with new faces in
Bridgeport and renewed spirits in New
Haven there ousht to be a revival.
Up the Naugatuck Division, Water
bury will mak2 a stab for honors.
Frank Connaughton will try his hand
at the game, succeeding Mild Mique
Doherty. If he is a better manager
and player than Sir Michael was he'll
be better than any manager ever in
this league. Doherty had the noodle
for a manager, but with continual di
rections from the owner of the club,
there was nothing to it, but drag
along as best he could. The new man
ager will have an owner over him,
Mickey Finn, who is well experienced
in baseball. Connaughton comes from
the New England league where he has
been for the past two seasons. He is
not a youngster, but is well versed
in baseball. He is a player himself,
covering the second bag.
Manager Billy Hanna has secured for
his Bank Wreckers, Joe Connors, the
Springfield catcher, giving in exchange
his giant first baseman, Henry Mason.
Connors has for a long time had man
agerial asperations. The change he
has looked for is now at hand. He
is of the aggressive type of ball player,
the qualities which are most desired
in a baseball manager of today. He
ought to make good. He will not be
as handicapped as most of the new
managers, as he has a great bunch
of excellent material.
Goldie Bowler did not make a suc
cess of the Northampton team, accord
ing to the fancies of Owner Edwards.
The Lark manager had been sweet on
Smiling Billy Luby all last season, and
this year effected a deal whereby Bill
came to the girls college town in ex
change for Ira Plank. Luby at once
came to terms with Edwards as man
ager, and set out getting his players
for the season. He has succeeded won
derfully to date and has secured many
good men, besides getting rid of one
great trouble- maker, "Tacks" DeLave.
Bill of course was engaged as playing
manager. He states that he will pitch
occasionally and play the outfield. A
With the score a tie at 15-15 and
less than one minute left to play,
Webster, the latest acquisition to the
local High school team, fouowing a
series of skillful passes, threw the
final basket of the game, between
Bridgeport and Derby High at the
Boys' Club Saturday, adding two more
points to the local score, the visitors
going down to defeat. The game was
probably the swiftest and prettiest
contest ever played on the Boys' cluo
floor. Webster made flit bow as a
B. H. S. player, scoring a decided hib
with eleven of the locals 17 points.
He had three shots for fouls, all of
which he landed. Tile score:

OUTLAW BASfcBALL LEA.UfcIS FORMED
Boston, Feb. 14. An "outlaw" base
ball league was formed in this city
Saturday at a meeting of a number of
men from various Eastern cities. It
is to be known as the United States
league, with Dr. G. H. A. Lawson of
Paterson, N. J., as president and Louis
A. Dougher of Boston as secretary and
the cities in which it is said clubs will
be placed are Boston, Providence,
Brooklyn, Newark, N. J., Trenton, N.
J., Paterson, N. J., Philadelphia and
The promoters stated that Sunday
baseball would be a feature in all the
cities except Boston, and that there
would be several colored players
among the members of each nine. The

CAN'T PLAY UNDER
Cincinnati, Feb. 14. Playing under
an assumed name is not a legal avoid
ance of the rules of organized base
ball. This is the substance of a de
cision handed down Saturday by the
National baseball commission in the
case of Player Pokorney, application
for whose reinstatement to the eliiP
ble list was made by the officials of
the Toledo club of the American as
sociation. Pokorney's release origin
ally was sold by Toledo to Evansville,
but he never reported to that club
and later unrter an assumed name
ayed with the California State lea
gue. The commission in its fiinings
"The fact that Pokorney used an
assumed name cannot be used as an
argument why theineligibility against
im for his failure to report to the
Kvansville club should be removed.
The commission also recommends that
when the time limit of ineligibility
against this player has expired he be
given notice tr show cause why pen-
'ty should not be inflicted against

McCormick last season was drafted by
the Boston Americans, and according
to the latest advices, has been farmed
to the American association. Holyoke
like Bridgeport has been keeping quiet
during the present lay off, but since
the local club has been sold, there has
been a big gap placed between them.
Coming back to Bridgeport, Gene
McCann, the peerless leader of the
minors will lead the ex-Orators unto
the front. Things have been in such
a state Bridgeportwise, that the fans
will welcome a team that will win a
majority of its games. McCann as
sures the boys that he will even do
better than that, but does not prom
ise any pennants. McCann brings ex
periencesained as a player with the
big leagues, as a manager in the Eas
tern league, and his knowledge of
players, having been a scout for the
New York Americans. Without a
doubt, and without throwing any bou
quets at the new manager, McCann
ought to prove the best man?ger ever
in the Connecticut league. He is in
a way with the big league clubs to
get the players and promises that if
they are to be gotten that he will have
his choice. What better inducements
cou'.d be offered for a club in the Park
It will be hard to strew roses In the
patch of Jack Zeller. Last season he
had a team of players, but what he
did with them is another story. The
cry went out that he did not treat
them as did their former manager Dan
O'Neill, but that is not far reaching
enoueh wail to make excuses for the
showing of his club. Jack got in
wrong at the start when he disposed
of Bill Yale to Northampton and then
tried to cover first base himself. The
Pony fans never forgave him for this
blunder. The team under his regime
went from bad to worse, finishing bad,
the more ignominy, as they were the
cha-Anps of 1908. Jack has been on the

tiela early tnis season, dui win nave
to set a strong pace to collect a team.
He has lost a number of men by grad
uation to the majors, while others
equally good he has traded off in ex
change for gqpd men in some places,
but Well, the best we can offer you
Jack is good luck.
Tom Connery, the Adonis of the Con
necticut league, will again be the lead
er of the Senators. Tom is an ex
pert in this line, the showing he made
with his weak hitting Hartford crew
showing his metal. Yes. he had the
pitchers with him, but still they have
to have a team behind them. Tom was
well aided by his owner Clarkin. who
snent the money for the players when
he saw that his team needed the
strengthening.' Tom was in the game
every minute, encouraging and kidding
his players, which is the greatest as
set any manager can have. With Con
nery in Hartford and McCann in this
city there ought to be some of the old
fire works about the circuit.

JIMMY SAVAGE MAY PLAY HERE.
Manager Gene McCann of the local
baseball club can have the services of
Jimmy Savage, the former Villanova
captain, and who played long enough
with Hartford last season to snatch a
victory from Bridgeport by a timely
three bagger. Savage signed with the
New York Americans and with the
Waterbury club. When Wanner was
purchased from Hartford, the High
landers gave Savage over in part pay
ment. Waterbury later made a claim
to the National commission, whereup
on the big lea.euers were compelled to
pay the Waterbury club something
like $400, thouah they still retained
Sav?ge. According to his contract
this season Savage is not due to re
port to the New York club till July
1, as he will be assisting Fred Crolius
in the coaching of the Villanova Col
lege players. He also graduates in
June. When he reports to the Amer
icans he will be turned over to the
local management if the latter desires
Irs services. Savage is a third base
man, but with Cy Miller, of whom
great work is expected this season cov
ering that station, there is not much
hope that he will land here.
