Th Pterin Chinaman-,-rather 'half- Chmese- athiete will be : Foster, who alternates between the outfleld and the pitching slab of the same - -an outfit, and he is tipped off as one of greatest prospects .that ever flashed the spikes. " . V . - Business Manager Frank Bancroft saw Foster working- .in both positions during the recent Hawaiian tour,' and avers that he can' come pretty close to replacing Marsans ' in the field, '. while his pitching is something .far ! above the average,;':'' '-' k The Mongolian hurled against Grover Cleveland Alexander In one game.. He , seemed to have every thing speed, control, .flashing curves and gameness under. Are., In the field he galloped afar and got what he galloped after. He had; a .407 record for the 1914; season. ,:;;, Foster is a son of a - white- mer chant who married a Chinese girl in Honolulu. He is over -six feet tall, built very much on the lines of Chief Sender.

Fired As ; f Slap to Players Fraternity, Rumor Says The tmcon.ditionaJ release; of; Pitchy - er Edward Reulbaxih,' by the- Brook lyn club, ' is regarded as. a direct slap at the Players Fraternity.7 It' is be ' " lieved -to indicate, the attitude club . owners are beginning to take toward those members of the fraternity who show undue activity ih the ranks Nof '. the ball clubs. Several players expressed the "opin ion that Reulbach had not , been rer . , leased because it was' thought that ' his days as a big league pitcher-were i over. They believed that. President Ebbets had obtained waivers on ReulT i.bach through a gentleman's agree i meat. In order that he might be re- ' buked for the "missionary. ;work he I attempted to , do among the Dodgers '.last season.,' -.':. L Reulbach Is secretary of the Play ers' Fraternity and has been one of the chief aids of President Dave , Fultz. Brooklyn fans, as wen as the management - of the club -believe that . Reulbach exerted an influence on the " players last season that was not for the best interests of the club, and : which- is," by 'some, accounted as, the cause for "the, cliques .that sprang up in the lub. - . Reulbach has been .in bad favor ; with the management f the Dodgers ' since ' before the 'season - opened last 'i year, and hlSv actions throughout the ; seasqn, Accompanied by the fact that -"J he did not show Manager Robinson i suTthine much in the nitchiner line. . i did 'not tend to improve matters fop . .f him.

BUSINESS MANAGER OF YANKEES WAS ENTHUSIASTIC FAN - Harry- Sparrow, 'the -new business manager of - the Tankees, .assumed active control of the club yesterday. Sparrow has been indirectly connect' ed. with baseball for seventeen years, yet we venture, to say that very few of the fans even, know" him, by sight. . Sparrow came into baseball throusrh sheer love' of the pastime. His tak ing hold of the business' end of the club, and Huston and Ruppert pur chasing it, gives New Tork. a ball team owned and run by three men from the ranks of the fans. : . . Harry's first interest in the game developed, -seventeen years ago, when he.-:fornied , a . strong, friendship for John J. , McGraw. He was ah adver tising man at . the time, but through association with the Baltimorean, be came a rabid -diamond devotee. -When McGraw came to New Tork and, made 'his reputation, with, the Giants, Sparrow became, a fixture at the , "-Polo ' Grounds. ' :. His" -xehthusiasnx even carried him so far that he soon began making the road trips with the team. ' , - - " The old bromide, "If business in terferes with pleasure, give up- busi ness,"', that antedates even Joe Mil lers wheezes, finds, a living' example in Harry Sparrow i Baseball -was his pleasure, . advertising his business. but In a few short years baseball had quite pushed business right out of his young life. - He soon became personal represen tative for McGraw. '' He, and the little Nap were inseparable. '; ;rTet so far as the public " was- concerned Harry Sparrow continued to be-merely a ro tund gentleman - who persistently in habited the press stand , at the Polo Grounds, and 'now and then had his name in the paper, tacked on to some merry quip of ye-sporting jesters. l i Last year when McGraw and Co miskey decided to tour: the universe. Harry started' to go along as one of the party.. The trip had no sooner gained headway, however, than the business ,'end of it fell on. his shqul- ders.' - -.- . ' ... Ted Sullivan, of course, was origin ally supposed to manage the Journey. Why . Ted ' did not manage it is an other story. All we will say is that we suspect- that Ted spelled manage with : a ."mis" before it. Anyway, on Sparrow fell the-burden of the fight. .j-,- -v Harry .made more., money - between here and ; the coast "for the.- tourists than, a baseball party .ever made be fore or since. ; Not only that, 'hut, he made a. paying proposition of the en tire tour, and after paying the party' expenses, had a substantial balance on the profit, side of the ledger. Sparrow's wonder work on the Jour ney convinced McGraw that lie was capable of taking care of any busl ness proposition, Bo matter how large or hoW- involved. When Huston and Ruppert came to buy the Yankee club McGraw recommended Sparrow for the -business ."management, His ap pointmeiit was assured, from the time his name was mentioned. GIANTS ORDERED TO: START FEB; 28 FOR MARLiN CAMP New Tork, Feb. 2 -Marching or ders were, sent -yesterday to the vari ous -Giant detachments by Secretary -John " B. -Foster, whose plans.- have' been somewhat altered by - recent rulings which prevent any ball army from attacking a training ' camp .prior to March 1. . v - , : - All the; . rookies and carop follow ers have received orders to be in Marlin by Feb. 28, and to o by the quickest way from their homes. Reg ular players, who are unable to make connections with the New t Tork to Marlin special have also been-. in structed to be in Marlin by: Monday, March 1. t- - '-'.,'' The, New '.Tork '.detachment 1 vill leave here oh Feb. 25, and McGraw probably will be in command of the army of invasion", provided he does not find- golf so enticing as to keep him in Cuba until late in the m,onth; Secretary Foster yesterday , re viewed the signed contract of Emilio Palmero, the young Cuban lefthand er, who was with the Giants at . odd moments last, season. Palmero has been, pitching great ball in Cuba, .and may now 'be jipe , for the- big show. McGraw intends to give the young ster a thorough trial next spring. ' EASTERN MAY ADOPT SPLIT SEASON PLAN New Haven, - Feb. 2 The Eastern association directors at their ad journed meeting here yesterday af ternoon 'decided to; resume operations during the . coming season with ".six clubs. Investigatibn of conditions' in Waterbury and Ndrthamptoni reveal ed discouraging reports, a)nd the di rectors required little titae to "reach a decision over the makeup, of the cir cuit.

Feb. 2 'Although beaten by Harvard in the first game of the series, nTale is still confident of "carrying off inter-collegiate hockey honors this season.. , The " Blue put up'- a great fight against the;Criihson seven in Boston. Saturday night, and expects to win the two ,, -remaining games of the -series. If Tom Howard's pupils can do this and 'win one more game from Prince ton, the championship will hinge on the result of the Tale-Dartmouth game. Coach Howard believes that if Tale can dispose of , Harvard the Blue will ot have much trouble beat ing Dartmouth. -- v Howard will give the Tale team a hard -drill this , week in preparation for the game at the St. Nicholas rink in New Tork, Saturday night, with McGill university of Montreal. ANNIVERSARIES OB RING BATTLES 1841 rNick Ward-won on foul tfrom Ben Caunt, in 5th round at Andover Station, Eng. ' ' Nick- Ward ;. jas a brother of the famous" Jem - Ward," the ex-champion of England, and he naa an me aDiiicy ox nis oiaer Drorn-er,-but was- "yellow ito the core.'; His lack of courage was evident from the first and by running away from Caunt he gained the displeasure ,of the crowd. Caunt, a savage fighter, ber came , so. 'Irritated? by Nick's tactics that he lost all control of himself. In tne rourxn round, wnen jnick was in close quarters; ' he dropped to ;his., knees, , but the infuriated Caunt- bang ed away at' him. As Ward' was down, according to the rules, the ref eree gave him the decision on a foul; Nick thus became champion of Eng land, but he was so unpopular that he was soon forced to give Caunt an other .match. Nick's cowardice , on that occasion was so evident that even his brother Jem Joined in . hooting him when he finally went down, with out a blow being struck, and 'refused td- get up. 'I--'..
