fkPromoter Kugenio Jiminez cabled an

teen games have been scheduled to be
played with the two Cuban teams—K1
Mendares and the Havana Reds.

McDonald will be carried, while Mes
senger, Knisely and McBride will play

r role.
“The Barons will play three times a
week,” said Hoy Kllam, “on ►Sunday.
Monday and Thursday. Although the
Monday crowds are slim In this coun
try the Cubans attend in large num
bers on this day. The Cubans respect
the umpires and do not like to see the
players engage in a dispute over a de
cision.
“Several of the Cubans on the teams
In this country play with the two clubs
we will meet. Viola, Almeida, Mursans,
Cabrera, Padron and Cueto are in the
lineup of the Castillian clubs. The
Cubans are nifty tielders, good base
runners and ordinary hitters. They find
it difficult to hit a curve ball.
“During our stay we will doubtless
enjoy ourselves with trips and excur
sions to tiie different places of interest.
With the New Orleans club. I was treat
ed finely. We were shown the utmost
courtesy by the Cubans and saWr-Moro
Castle, Santiago hay and tin* othei
Cuban points of history.
‘Birmingham will put up a. better
battle than the other clubs, as we will ,
fight hard to will Instead of enjoying j
ourselves.”

of sailing of the close of the Southern
league season the Barons will accept
games with the strong amateur clubs.

other clubs will be offered engagements.
Saturday a benefit game will be played

By HRtiBEX A. LEWI?
Struggling desperately under a weighty
handicap, the Barons forged from the
rear, tied the score in the last round and
triumphed over Montgomery in the tenth
session, ,1 to 2. "Wee Willie" Prough
proved a tower of strength, while the
Barons were helpless before Eddie Man
ning in the early rounds. Toward the
close Molesworth's henchmen solved
Manning, but Pfough grew stronger.
The baVtle was replete with thrills. In
the eighth, facing a two run lead, Large
William McGilvray approached the front
by scoring a tally. Marcan walloped
safely in the ninth and Eddie McDonald 1
deadlccqed the battle with a crash
through short. Elmer BrownUthe $7000
beauty, was called from retirement to
suppress the Baron onrush ami succeeded
In the ninth. But in the tenth, McGilvray
and Messenger waxed dangerous with
the willow and downed the mighty hinder.
The closing clash was in sharp contrast
to the morning game. Prough pitched
splendidly, while Foxen was batted free
ly by Montgomery and suffered a 7 to 0
downfall. Curly Brown blanked the Bar
ons and held them to one clean safety,
a single by Messenger. While the Bir
mingham cohorts were helpless before
Curly Brown, the Billikens slugged hard,
took advantage of the Barons' misplays
and fielded brilliantly. A catch by Mc
Dowell featured the battle.
* * •
The morning victory shoved t'he Billi
kens within a half of a battle of the Bar
ons and it seemed as if the Dobbers would
regain their previous position with a vic
tory yesterday afternoon. But the mighty
crowd whooped for a victory and Bir
mingham responded to the call nobly.
Young Eddie Manning was too fofmid-.
able lor the locals during the early
rounds, while Prough was batted for two
runs in the sixth and eighth rounds. Mc
Dowell, who played brilliantly, opened
with a single past McDonald. Wares
bunted to Prough, who passed up a fruit
ful opportunity to force McDowell at
second and downed Wares at first. El
wert sent a slow bounder over second,to
Knisely, who pagged poorly to the plate
and McDowell registered.
The Barons were bitting Manning with
out results in the closing innings, but
the Billikens registered the second run
In the eighth and it seemed as if the
Barons were downed.
With two out in the eighth, Wares dou
bled to the sunfield and tallied when El
wert drove a sizzling grounder which
ricochetted from Kllam and bounded in
left field.
• * *
Fighting madly for the conflict, the
Barons opened the final assault upon
Youngster Manning. In the eighth,
I-arge William McGilvray performed in
1812 style, with a double to left field.
The Billiken infield played hack and dis
astrously for their hopes, Ellam dropped
a slo wgrounder to Wares and McGilvray
advanced to third. Clifton repeated and
Mack counted.
Within one run of the Billikens. Prough
downed his adversaries in the ninth.
Marcan opened the final assault witli a
clean single to right field. Messenger
dropped a sacrifice to Snedecor and 1-11
speeded to second. McDonald delivered
the swat that tied the battle, a single
through first and second.
Perceiving that Manning was weaken
ing, Manager Dobbs sent his star flln
ger, Elmer Brown, into the battle to
preserve the draw. The speedy pitcher
fulfilled hopes by checking further scor
ing.
in the tenth, Prough baffled the Bills,
but Elmer Brown was beaten by Bob
Messenger. McGilvray cracked his sec
ond safety to center field for a cushion
and was advanced to second by Ellam.
Clifton hoisted to center, but elongated
Clinton Prough drew a pass, while Mar
ian was hit by a misplaced slant. Mes
senger had failed to swat safely pre
viously, but the speedy one singled
through short and won the engagement.
■ • •
The populace felt joy some in the clos
ing sessions and gave open demonstra
tion. When McGilvray scored thg crowd
cheered loudly. But when Eddie Mc
Donald delivered the tieing crash, the
throng grew delirious in their joy. Cush
ions were sent hurtling into the air, hats
were cast heavenward witli reckless
abandon, while frantic shouts rendered
tlie Eurrounding a din.
But when Messenger won the battle,
the attendance erheered for fully five min
utes It was fine sport!

BRANCH RICKEY WILL BE
MADE MANAGER OF BROWNS,
SUPPLANTING STOVALL
Manager Dobbs Declares Rickey Will Supplant Stovall—Was
Offered Assistant Manager By Browns—Will
Probably Go To Toledo
Branch Hickey has been chosen to
manage the Ht. Louis Browns in 1914. He
will succeed George Stovall upon Sep
tember H, as the Brown's begin their final
trip to the east. Manager Johnny Dobbs
of the Montgomery club, confirmed the
rumor yesterday afternoon.
“I learned about two weeks ago that
Rickey would manage next season,” said
Manager Dobbs, when asked to confirm
the rumor, "and the report Is correct.
The Browns have been unable to win
under Stovall. Rickey lei the University
of Michigan team this season and Is a
veteran bull player.”
While the Bllliken manager would say
nothing about offers made himself by
the Ht. Louis management. Manager
Dobbs was offered the position of assist
ant manager by the major league team.
However, President Armour of the To
ledo club, has preferred Dobbe the lead
ership of his club and it is probable that
he* will accept it. He has another tenta
tive offer to manage %
All doubt of whether George Stovall
would manage in 1914 was dispelled when
Branch Rickey advised that Rimer
Brown be sold to Brooklyn, while Stovall
counselled thut he be brought back to
St. Louis. Rickey engineered the recent
deal for Walker with Kansas City and
lias recommended every player pur
chased by the Browns recently.
He is juet 31 years of age and is a
college man, a graduate of Ohio Wes
leyan and the I'niversity of Michigan. He
was a former player in the major
leagues. Bun Jcrtmson visited St. Louis
Saturday and placed his stamp of ap
proval on the new man. Rickey acted
as scout last season.
Stovall will probably be released*
