DANVILLE EXPLAINS
PAY-YOUR-TRIP PLAN
Amateurs Take to Organized Baseball Like a
Duck to Water?All Leagues in City Eligi?
ble to Representation on Amateur Com?
mission?Sullivan to Strengthen
Weak Places.
BY GlIS MA I.BRUT. ?
A few days ago 1 briefly mentioned
the fact that the Danville club dis?
avowed any Intention of taking un?
fair advantage of the players* to whom
contracts were sent, but who were re?
quested to pay their own transporta?
tion if they desired to report I further
stated that the Danville management
felt that the question of paying ex?
penses was optional with the players, j
and that a refusal to pay expenses
would be construed on the part of)
those in authority as a declaration that!
the player was thereafter a free agent. I
Since that time I have been Informed1
that the good people on the Dan are
of the opinion tiiat their statement
has not been given sufficient publicity.
In view of the prominence given to the
story which First Baseman Clancy
gave out in Baltimore.
John YV. Carter, secretary of the
Danville Baseball Club, and a very
good friend of mine, wrote mc a letter
explaining the position of his club. It
is not necessary to print all of that let?
ter, but In justice to him and the rest
of Hie people i:> that city, I am going
to print part ct' It. Here are some ex?
cerpts, with?tii comment, just as was
printed the Baltimore story:
"Tbe facts in the Clancy case are
simple enough. When w'e started out
to sign a team this season we realized
that to get under a $1,200 salary limit
an Invasion must be made Into the
ranks of the semi-pros. In getting to?
gether a team from such a source we
found it necessary to Eign a large;
number of players and then wecel out.
When'these tuen were signed a num?
ber expressed the desire to report,
even if they had to pay their own eix
penses. After the weeding process be?
gan. In order to allow such of these
men that wanted to come at their own
expense to do so, I wrote to them and
told thf-m that we could not bring
them to Danville, but that they might
coine for a tryout if they wantou to,
they to bear all expenses.
"Of course, this acted as a release
to such of the men that did not desire
to go to that expense, anel I have had
no idea that I could hold them further.
"We have ynnt transportation to
about twenty men, these twenty being
selected from our signed men. and half
of these- men ;:re now on the ground.
? What we I nve done is simply to
n eed out o ir li?=t of prospect!ves,
brought the best here, and allowed the
rest to erime if they wanted to. and If
they do not ..are to come, of course,
tiiiey are free agents.
'?So far us the National Commission
Is concerned let me say that during
bur experience in baseball we have bad
probably lift- rases before, that body
and have never le?st a case."
i ft must bo gratifying to many, as it
? surely Is to nie, to note tlie great w?v
in which the amateurs of Richmond
? have rallied round the Amatur Base- j
? ball Commission. There is nothing
which will licit) the game of baseball,
from the amateur's standpoint, so much
as having tlx game organized. This Is
i best proved by the horribly tangled
iand unsatisfactory condition of the
i game before the organization of the
National Commission and the National
Association among the pros.
The statu?, of baseball In those days
was such an to make it a most hazard?
ous business venture for any man. and
the sport Was at Its lowest ebb. Note
? thf change With the formation of the.
two organizations noted, players and
magnates were r.rotected. From a het
erogcnons mass the several leagues
I were welded into a manageable whole
[Players began to have confidence in
the men behind the game, and a bet
; tei calibre of men was secured. If you
dbn'i believe thin simply look over the
personnel of the fellows now playing
1 baseball
i All of this Is oqually true of amateur
baseball In all of the larger cities
; of the country there Is In existence an
a mateui baseball commlHKlon which
