THE WASHINGTON TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL 17: IMS.
12 Griffith Says He Has No Intention of Letting Catcher Egan Go to Baltimore GRIFFITH DENIES EGAN IS RELEASED "Old Fox" Insists That He Has Not Yet Let Go His String on Young Catcher, and .That Connie Mack Has ' . Not Sent Him to Baltimore. HUGHE HIGH IS GREAT PERSEVERcK Missed His Supper So He Could Play Ball and Worked Durtog Lunch Hour So That He Might Get to Diamond Earlier. Archaeologists Unearth Evidence of Prehistoric Game By "SENATOR." NEW YORK. April 17. "The report from Ehiladelphla that Connie Iack has released' Ben Egan to the Baltimore club Is Incorrect." said Manager Grif fith this morning. "I have yet to -waive claim to this plajer. He Is not going to get away from me while I think I may need him to. help out my ball club. They must have put it over on me while I was asleep, if they got Egan out of this league. That story is wrong." v Jack Dunn, manager of the Balti more Orioles, has been trying to get Egan for his team. Last week he paid a visit to Washington for a talk with Manager Griffith, trying to get his per mission to let the player out of the American League. However, in the present condition of the- Climbers' catching staff, Griffith declined to waive. TJie strength ; or weakness of the Climbers behind" the bat this season will be shown conclusively within a feu days. Today John' Henry who has been on jthe hospital list since last season, Is expected to get a thorough trial In a regular game, catching his old side partner,. Bob Groom. If Henry goes throigir today's test successfully, Mana ge.1 Griffith will then think about letting Egan leave this league. Before leaving the Capital Manager Crlffith presented his ten- days' notica of '.release "to Jack Egait the semi-pro backstop, and to Bob Austin, the Wes leyan College southpaw twirler. both of whom- were-given trials with the Climb ers this spring. Griffith has been try ing to land berths for both these young players but has failed. All New York, from the nethermost ends of Brooklyn to thepurlleus of far away Bronx, is prepared, today to give Frank Leroy Chance, Peerless Leader, a welcome to live long in the memory of all fortunate enough, to be within the tpacious 'confines of the Polo Grounda. .Long a detested villain in the minds of the Xcw Yorker. Chance baa become ft hero merely by shifting his allegiance from Chicago to the greatest city in the "Western Hemisphere littlr old New York. Gotham yearns for a winner. Hal Chase, given the nucleus of a good team by George Stallings, tried and failed. Some say that Hal was too good-hearted to use the iron hand. Anyway, he failed, and Immediately ttecame anath ema. Last year chubby Harry Wolverton was wished upon the New York club. He had forgotten major league tactics through 'long service in the bushes. He experimented and experimented, but got" nowhere. He failed. If his continual experimenting would not have brought "his downfall, his extreme hard luck would anyway. There were times when the Yankees positively resembled a class C team. So Harry failed, and moved on to California. Johnson Steps In. Ban Johnson, archon of the American League, realized that to make baseball leally reach its height of .prosperity, he must put a winning club into New York Fortunately for him his arch enemy, "Chattering" Charlie Murphy. !oss of the Cubs and general disturber of baseball, picked on his manager. Murphy knew that Chalice's contract was about to end. He knew, too, that the contract required Murphy to keep his hands off the team. So Murphy, in order not to tie- himself up to any such a contract in the future, picked a quar rel with the man who had won pennants and world's titles for the West Side team in Chicago. And that was where tan Johnson stepped in. Chance did not hesitate to replv to Murphy In the latter"s own terms. When Murphy lied. Chance called him a. liar. Both men kept the wires blaz ing with their messages. Finally Chance decided to quit the diamond, going to his orange groves In California. He had done his work. He had made a winner out.of a team generally doped to finish third or worse. But his retire ment was not to be long. Ban Johnson got busy. "I must have a winning team in New York," thpught Ban Johnson. "Tnc team looks good now on paper. It lacks a driver. I'll get Chance." And he did. Frank Farrell. the quiet owner of the Yankees, stood ready to pour his money AMERICAN LEAGUE. Baseball Standings Standing of the Clubs. W. L.

He knows that he will get It all back, if he gets a winner for a slnglo season. New York likes a winner and Farrell is a New Yorker. i Chance Signs Up. All you.fans'remember the excitement In baseball1 circles last winter when Chance -was hesitating about slgnln? his contract to manage the Yankees. The afternoon papers in this little old town actually got out extras .about the varlous'niovements of Johnson, Chance and Farrell in Chicago. At last the former chieftain of the Cubs agreed. New York tossed up Its hat and yelled. At last it was to have a winner. The writer was here in February the night Chance was introduced to his brother managers of the American League. It was positively amusing to look at Frank Tarrell. He acted as If he had found a -prize. He actually be lieved he had made It possible for the American League to have a pennant w Inner here merely by obtaining Chance t6 whip his undoubted stars into shape and make they play Chance baseball. Today New York hopes to assure Chance. In no. unmistakable terms of the warmth 'of his support. For six weeks' the -fans of the metropolis read of the.practlce sunts of the Yankees In Bermuda. Tbey could hardly wlthstrain themselves until the Broadway boys 'should -return. Finally they left the steamer-ln the North, river and played over in Brooklyn- Despite the bad wea ther the new- stadium of Charlie Eb bctts was packed to the fences. That game in Brooklyn, though, was a mere exhibition. It did not have the tang of the real thing. Today It's the real thing at the Polo Grounds. The toughest opponent possible, the "Washington Climbers, have been chosen to open the season here. There will bo plenty of tang to this battle today. And the fans know It. Celebration Planned. A big celebration has been planned by the fan. Of court, the usual band concert Ill keep the fans happy for the hour before the curtain goes up. Along about the time tho umpires show up to order tha.athletes to get down to business and abolish the fandangos, the Tammany Juniors, a baseball team made up of boys under fifteen years of age, will march upon the field, bear ing upon their shoulders an Immense floral baseball, a gift to Manager Chance from the well-wishing fans. This floral ball will be the largest ever seen, ten feet In diameter. It will be covered with floral autographs of many of the best-known fans in Great, er New York. Members of the Calumet, Friars, Lambs, and Knickerbocker clubs, all followers of our great na tional pastime, have united In making thla floral ball the greatest ever. Joe Humphries, whoje stentorian tones are known wherever large throngs are to be addressed, will march to the plate and tell the. fans that this base ball, a token of the best wishas of New York's fandom, Js for Manager Frank Leroy Chance. Ha will also extend to the Peerless Leader the very best wishes of the fans for a successful sea son on the diamond. There isn't much need for tho Wash ington fans to be told that the Yan kees have a good team. Most of Wash ington was at the Florida avenue ball yard last Thursday wh-?n Walter John son had to work his arm off to keep the fighting Yankees at bay. They know that Chance has worked the al most impossible, made his team a fight ing aggregation. BASEBALL NOTES Manager Evers. of the Cubs, has ship ped Pitcher Sutcllffe to the New Lon don team, of the Eastern Association. Manager Callahan, of the White Sox, figures that Pitcher Benz is 50 per cent stronger'than he was last year. , The Cincinnati club lost quite a bunch of money bj being compelled to cancel exhibition games on-account of the flooded condition of the ball yard. The St. Joseph team hung one on "Big Ed" Walsh in an exhibition game the other day. when they drove the "Big Moose" to the woods in six in nings. The Athletics pitching btaff looks to be some staff -Kith the youngsters. Wye. koff, Durning and Bush helping out Bender, Coombs, Plank and Brown. Pitcher George Foster, who is show ing his winning ways with the cham pion Red Sox. was once with the Browns, and last season the star heaver of the Houston, Tex., team. Wilbur Schardt. the former Brookljn twirler, is back in the American Asso ciation, being a member of the Indian apolis team. Two years ago ho was a star with the Milwaukee team. A number of baseball critics claim that the outfield of both the Giants and the Athletics are woefully Weak. The season Is early yet. A little later we will seo what we will ry. , Bert Aunts, who has been in the Cen tral League for the past ten years, first as owner of the South Bend team and later as owner of the Grand Rap ids franchise, has retired from the game. Connie Mack doesn't think that Wash ington will cut much of a caper in the American League pennant race. Either tho Rca Sox or the Athletics will at tend to the winning stuff this season, according to Connie. Pitchers "Lefty James and "Lcftv" George are team mates on the Toledo club, ot the American Association. These two southpaws will be n gnat help to the Mud Hens In their wade through the A.

This date should be a grand little opening for Mr. Murphy to use in blowing himself to an extended Eastern tour. By Way of As the situation stands now the best scheme at hand would be to call off the schedule for a while and send the clubs back for another stretch of spring training. Only think of how many tons of hogsheads of the grand old "pink" have been washed out since the middle of last week. A good many of the earnest athletes have about forgotten how to put on their gloves or whether right field is back of first base or behind the catcher. Last season we drew a rough winter and a raw March. April and the league opening was worse. This season we drew a mild winter and a balmy March. And April has been worse than ever.

Practically nil of the big league teams and those of the minors which wero slated to open their season today will get a chance to play, according to the weather dope sent out this morning. The delaed opening of the Intorna nlonal League will take place together with tho Fchcdulcd openings of the South Atlantic and the Virginia State leagues. From nil over the country weather reports show that for tho llrst time since the season opened all of the teams will be able to enjoy something akin to real baseball weather. The ruin during the past week has kept both American and National leagues idle, has postponed the opening of the International circuit, and has lost thousands of dollars for the club magnates. Since April 10 the opening of tho two major leagues hardly a game has been played under a cloudless sky, those In the West being played between showers or uniler dark, cloudy weather condi tions. East and West today enjoy sun shine of the K0 per cent kind doled out by the weather man. WEATHER PERI TS ARROW SHIRTS cIfte Spring Styles await inspection at your dealers H? and up CLUETT.

If his youngsters look as good under a further test as they looked against the Thillies there will be quite an upheaval necessary before the Athletics are blocked away from the top of October's heap. There's no question about the rest of the club if he can show a clus ter of larvae properly equipped to help out Coombs, Bender, and Plank. The Red Sox this season may whale the padding out of the Yanks at several spots along the trail, but they have about given up the hope of wrenching off nineteen out of twpnty-one games as they did last year. It took Frank Chance two starts against the Champs to nick his first victory from them, where Harry Wolverton traveled Into his fifteenth battle vs. Stahl before cracking the deadlock of defeat Something of a difference, as such things go.

Y:ou often have heard people use the expression that they preferred sorae tnlrg" else to taking their meals, but when It comes to a showdown, they prob ably were not slow In lining up for the march toward the dining room. There Is one Tiger, however, who repeatedly has missed his supper In order that he might have more time to devote to the national pastime. Hughlc High Is the name of this ath lete who found more pleasure In play ing baseball on an empty stomach than in doing any thing else after a feast Not only did he endure the pangs ot hunger In order to engage In the sport, but assimilated many a parental licking for cutting meals besides. He's a Perseverer. Mr. High is what might be termed a persevering person. When he makes-up his mind to do anything he Just natu ally goes and does It. Until this par ticular object Is accomplished, he is -deaf, dumb, and blind, except where ncarlng, speaking, or seeing win ncip fcim to attain that which he desires. It so happens that he was. bitten by the baseball germ early. Ii life, and from that time onj his .world has revolved around the game. - The little fellow was not fortunate enough to be able to devote his entire attention to baseball, however. His parents decided that he had to bo use ful and ornamental at the same time. so he went to work learning the plum ber's trade. Just whv he selected this fintMlno linn .. Iiav, ihn.. -a .

Naturally, with eight houw sliced right out of the daylight, Mr. 1 High did not have very much tlmj left for ball jjlaylng, but he found that by passing up his supper he could ?t in about an hour's work on the lots in the baseball months. Quit Earl To Play. . Also he managed to quit half an hour earlier in the evening by taking only thirty minutes for dinner at noon Instead of sixty. Then, of course. Sun days and holidays, he did not have to work, unless there was some special Job, which meant overtime pay and more money to be spent for balls, bats, and gloves. , The young plumber played hard in the short time allowed him to enjoy the frame, and bis nrntielenev attracted th attention of some of the Trolley j leaguers. Finally he attained the proud position of a member of one ot the Trolley League clubs, and thereafter he lived Just for the Sundaybattles In that flourishing semi-professional circuits By this time hia people had given up the Idea of weaning him away from baseball, and instead of bestowing a licking on mm whenever he missed supper, they began to read the papers Monday morning to find out what Hugh had done In the Sabbath battles. They still predicted that he would come to no good end. but were glad, since he Insisted on being a ball player, that he was a good one. After r cnunle of Season In the ' Trolley League, he was signed by the Hartford club. Of the Connecticut Connecticut League, where he played In 1311 and 1912. coming to the Tigers from that outfit last fall. He still works at the plumbing busl- ness In the fall and winter months and holds a union Journeyman's card.
