THURSDAY EVENING, NEW SALARY LIMIT FOR TIE TRI-STATE York Directors Organize and Elect George Washington Heck ert as Manager GEORGE W. HECKERT Who Will Be an Owner and Manager of York Tri-State Team This Season Every manager signed up to date in the Tri-State favors the elimination of the individual salary limit and an increase in the monthly iigures that will put the standard of baseball in the league on a par with other leagues of the same class. The gen eral opinion prevails that there will be less incentive to override the salary limit rules if an increase is allowed, and the $l5O individual monthly limit wiped out. A change in the salary arrange ments in the Tri-State. according to opinions expressed by both owners and managers, give the league a standing that has long been desired. Young sters with ability will show a greater desire to play in the Tri-State know-1 ing that good work will bring a re-J turn in salary. Every club in the Tri- State would have an equal chance to win a pennant. The backers of George W. Heckert, who will manage the Yprk Tri-State baseball team during the coming sea-j son, have obtained the controlling in terest in the York Athletic Club. These directors were chosen at a meet ing last night: J. J. Gerry, George W. Heckert, H. S. Schmidt, George Stallman, W. W. McClune, H. F. Koh ler, Irwin G. Shedrick and Arthur G. Fry. Heckert was elected manager. It was decided to hold a banquet to stir up interest in the local club before the opening of the season. The guests of honor will be Governor Tener and the new president of the league, George M. Graham. Manager Heckert is now in a posi tion to go ahead and map out his plans. He has already sent out con tracts to a number of the players who were with York last season. Heckert will have to get four new pitchers. Last year's staff consisted of Milliman, Shaw, Williams and Schmidt. Of these Shaw is with Washington, and Schmidt is the prop erty of the New York State League club. Several clubs are after Milli man and he will likely be sold. EXKNDINE SIGNS AS COACH By Associated Press Washington. D.
