In tho commission of a foul ait 1 the

pathetic part of It was that tho run
was not ntTected one way or tho other
by tho foul. Then Immediately after
this hnlr-ralsing dash Casey was called

Former Leader of Cubs and Braves Is
In Better Health Than for Several
Years and Is Confident of
Johnny Evors Is to be back In tho
Nnttonnl league next year as u innnu
ger. He Is to replace Hugo Heztlek as
pilot of the Pittsburgh Pirates, accord
ing to Information obtained In Cincin
nati during the world's series. Tho
announcement of his appointment will
probably not be madu until the meet
ing of the league In December unless
President Harney Droyfuss desires to
start building up bis elub earlier than
usual and asks Hvers' assistance In
Droyfuss, In choosing Evors to re
place, llczdck, Is not discharging his
manager, but Is said to have accepted
his resignation. Hugo Is n college
coach and Is now devoting his time to
drilling the Penn State football eleven
and It Is understood ho would prefer
to stay there all season, writes Oscar
ltelchow, hi Chicago Dally News. This
past season ho experienced a nervous
breakdown us n result of trying to
keep the Pirates In the race. Huthor
than Impair his health he left the club
flat on Its back In New York and
rushed to his home In Pittsburgh for a
rest. This, It Is believed, convinced
him that his duties nro with the col
lege. The Pirates' president attended tho
series games In Cincinnati and was In
conference with Evois on scvcrul oc-
cnslons, but denied he was talking to
him for the purpose of securing him to
lend his club. It Is known that Evors
Is most desirous of returning to base
ball after an absence of two years. Ho
declared to tho writer that his health
is liner now than It has been In many
years and that he believed ho Is capa
ble of taking n club and making n suc
cess of It. While ho did not solicit
flozdok's position, It Is known that
soveral friends went to tho front for
him ami succeeded In arranging a
meeting with Droyfuss.
Evers mnuiiged tho Cubs In 101H and
finished third with tho team. Ho re
placed Frank Chanco ns leader, but
was let out after the raco and sold to
the Huston Uraves, for whom he
played In 101-1, assisting mnterlolly In
winning tho National league and
world's series pennants. Evors was
not a success as a manager, nltbough
thero aro few In hnsebull, If any, who
know more about the game or the run
ning of n club on tho Held. Ills only
dllllctilty was In getting along with his
players. Ho was too drastic on tho
Held and by his severity aroused the
displeasure nnd Incurred the enmity of
his plnycrs. Had his men played ball
tho way ho desired them to the Cubs
might have won the championship thnt
Evcrs realized tho mistake ho made
nnd now thnt his health Is greatly Im
proved feels ho can take a ball elub
nnd handle It ns well as any other
mnnager In tho gnme. Ho wants the
ehnuco and Is going to get It with the
Pittsburgh club, with which ho may
provo himself capable, us tho team
hns plnyers around whom u champion
ship organization can ho molded
Evers knows this, and for that reason
would rather lead the Pirates than any
other club In tho league.
