Steen Allows Only Two Safeties
and Castleton Is Punished
for Nine
The Portland Beavers, leaders In the ]
Coast leagrue pennant race, made their
third appearance of the season on the
local lot yesterday afternoon and
waltzed away with the first game of
the series with the Angels by a score
of 2to 0 They scored one run in the
first inning anil one in the sixth, rind

Castleton K. pi them from adding to
their total. on the other hand, the
lAngfels had several chances to score.

breaking In phenomenal style had the
local batters swinging their head off.
Castleton'a box work was not bad by
imy means, and the local heaver hail
something on every ball, but the
McCredieites managed to beat bun
with clever base inning ami two hits
secured at opportune moments. Dame
Fortune favored the victors and
worked against the Angela In several
Portland scored the first run before |
the fans had hardly become seated.
Ole Olson, the first man up, slammed
a double down the third base line
and took third on Casey's bounder to I
Howard, on which Pearl was retired ;
at first. Art Kruger, the former Nap.

and Olson beat the throw to th» plate,

for the coming champs and the game
hardly started.

a hard one to handle which the former

reaching third and Dolraas first. Bert

Bteen and Waring stepped to the plate.
A lilt of any variety would have
caused the gong to strike twice for
the Angels and put them In the lead,
hut Bteen teased Waring Into trying
at a bad one and the resulting foul
was gathered In by Fisher,
The fourth inning looked propitious
for the visitors. With Casey out of
the way, Kruger singled to center.
Ryan hit to Hnllinan and was tossed
out at first. Sheehan, a pood hitter,
•wag the next man up. and Manager
HI, Cn die yelled to Tommy to "hit it
on the nose." Sheehan responded with
„ line drive which started for left
field, but Hallinan Intercepted the ball
•with one hand, ending the inning.
For getting- on bases the Beavers!
re demons. They filled up the sacks
in the fifth, and with two down could
not score. Rapps drove the ball nt
Castleton, who.almost stopped it. but
the sphere traveled so slowly to How
ard that Rapps had reached the first
station before Ivan could field the
drive. Ort forced Rai at second,
Castleton to Delmas, and Fisher new
to Kennedy. Steen struck out on a
wide ball, which cot away from "War-
Ing and rolled to the grandstand.
Steen i' ached second on the mishap
and Ort stopped at third, Olson was
given .i pass by Castleton, who feared
the shortstop'sl hitting after that first
spasm. It was "Casey at the bat," but
he failed t'j act according to tradition
end lofted a weak fly to Kennedy.
It looked as though the Webfeet
would score a million runs in the .sixth,
but castleton let them down with a
single tally. Kruger opened the inn- 1
ing with a drive to Hallinan. T'.ddie
made one of his very rare miscues,
and the ball went on into left. Ryan
pent Kruger to second with a sacri
fice. Sheehan Hied to Daley, and for
a minute it looked as though the
Beavers would fail to score. But the
very i,, xt ball hit showed the kind of;
luck tho Dillonites have been playing
In of kite. Rapps hit the ball directly
at linns, and as the latter set him- |
pelf for a nice assist to first, which
would have shut off the run, the ball
took a bad hop and went over Del
mas 1 head into center, Kruger rushing
across the plate. Rapps stole second
and Ort drew a pass. Fisher singled
to left, filling the bases. Stei was the
goat, however, and drove to Delmas,
who tossed Fisher out at second.
In the last half the Angela took a
brace and showed their old time form
for a tew seconds. With Castleton
back on the bench via the strikeout
route, Dal singled infield to Olson. |
Bernard started one on a line for the
score board, but Olson, by a startling
uplift, grabbed the sphere. Had the i
ball gone safe Daley would surely haVo
scored. Tho balance of the game was
Steen pitched a two-hit game, the ;
only safeties secured by the Angels ;
being Daley's infield single in the sixth
and Castleton's one-baser to left in the j
ninth. The Beavers are lightning fast |
on the bases, take all manner of j
chances, field excellently and hit when
the blngles are needed, hence tho rea
son for their position at the top is
not hard to explain. They play their
second engagement this afternoon at

Notes on Local Ball Plays and Players
Walter McCredto, the hustling
Beaver manager, has another Coast
league pennant within his grasp
and nothing but a cyclone can grab
it away from him. Although Wal
ter is no longer playing himself,
leaving the active work to the
younger men, he Is still rated as a
first class player, and should ha re
linquish the management of the
Portland club, would be offered a
job by every manager on the coast.
"Mac" has had a big league career
and knows the ins anil outs of
baseball to a "T." with the result
that he manages to get more work
out of a player than any Jther
manager in the league.
Since taking hold of the Portland
club, McCredie has never had a
loam finish lower than third, and
during that time has won two pen
nants, counting this year's. The
other year Portland occupied the
second peg when time was called.
An agreement with the Cleveland
American league club whereby no
acts as the Naps' scout on the coast
has enabled McCredle to pick his
choice of the Cleveland castoffs,
or, rather, yougsters who n*»rt a
little more seasoning before they
are ready for big league service.
Kruegcr, Fisher, Ryan, and Gregg,
the star southpaw, are all the prop
erty of the Cleveland club.
McCredle Is called in some quar
ters the "champion grabber of the
Coast league." and nothing seems
to delight him more than to engage
in a controversy with the powers
that be. However, he always be
lieves himself to be in the right,
and it takes a lighting manager to
land a team in first place, so "Mac"
must be handed the palm for de
veloping real ball teams.
Charley Hall of Ventura, a mem
ber of the Boston Americans'
pitching staff, viewed the Angel-
Beaver game yesterday. Charley
fine year with the big fel
lows during the season just closed
end has taken on considerable
weight since spring. Ho weighs
L 96 i ounde, but expects to take oft
some of this by playing winter ball
with the Doyles.
"Did you ever see luck liko
ours?" asked Bernard after that
second inning. "On the square, I
don't think any ball club was ever
attended by tiie hoodoo which has
been following us around for the
last three months. We manage t<>
got men on base, all right, but no
ono seems able to deliver the nec
essary wallop to send them in. 1
"Bernle" said something that time.
"That boy has certainly got
something," was Daley's comment
on Bteen after Pete had been twice
t,> the plate with no result. And
Steen certainly did have something,
and that "something" was a spltter
which the Angel batters declared
broke about two feet.
Castli '."ii also showed something,
!t, the big southpaw showed
more than he has had since he flrst
joined the club, but the Beaver
sluggers managed to connect when
they needed runs.
Olson's leap after Bernard's drive
In the sixth was of tho .stellar va
riety. The drive would have been
good for two bases had it gone free.
Olson is without a doubt one of the
best shortstops in tho league, both
In hitting and fielding.
It has been so long since tho
local fans have had a chance to see
the Beavers that they failed to rec
ognize tho men. This Is Portland's
third trip of the season to Los \n
geles, and the Beavers certainly
have no howl coming this year on
i hedule, as they have played
the majority of their games In the
w ebfoot metropolis.
Tommy Shechan looked familiar
on third base. Tommy looks tho
same as ho did when playing with
the pennant winning Tacoma club
managed by -Mike Fisher several
years ago.
Harry Waring worked behind the
bat fur'the Angelg for the lirst time
in many moons and sjjowad up
well. His throwing to T>ases was
good, but he did not hit up to his
usual standard, cuused no doubt

by his long absence from the game.
Waring is a prime favorite with
the fans, his popularity being at
tested by the "hand" given him
when he donned tho mask and
glove. His work with the local
club has been consistent, and he
would have been worked more fre
quently but for ill health. He, is
feeling right once more and has
almost regained his old time pep
Tho general expression of opin
ion Is that Dillon has done his last
active work on the diamond. Sev
eral of the Angel players express
it as their belief that he is break
ing Hughey Smith in as a flrst
baseman preparatory to shedding
the diamond spangles for all time.
This does not mean that he will
seer his connection with the An
gel team, but that, beginning next
year, the greatest flrst baseman
who ever performed on the coast,
only excepting Hal Chase, will be
a bench manager.
The game, was entirely devoid of
sensationalism, Hugh Smith's one
handed stop of Delma* wide throw
in the third being tne only feat
worthy of mention. Jim Brooks
declared that the reason the game
was so listless was because Car

A peculiar rule in the baseball

Castleton'l wild pitch in the tlfth

strikeout and a wild pitch cannot

of the season's close. The team

arrive. "Oh, how many more

"Only twelve," joyously returns

"Shine," the husky Ethiopian
trainer of the Tigers, has become
an ardent Angel rooter. He ex
plains his attitude tnusly: "Well,

those Angels, but Oh, you Tigers!"
Guess those Senators are going
slow. Five out of six games from
Oakland. McCredie has the lowly

of ball players who threatened to
push him close for the rag.
Joe Seaton of the Seattle North
west league club 's tho latest of the
winter colony to arrive In the city
of the Angels. Seaton got in yes
terday and declares that there Is
no place like Southern California.
Joe, after pitching swell ball here
during the last winter even de
feating the Chicago White Sox in
that memorable game at Long
Beach, got away lo a bad start this
spring and went to playing the out-
Held. 'He was stationed in right
iluld during the greater part of last
season and likes the outer garden
ing so well that he has about de
cided to give up pitching.
Occidental colored team of Salt
Lake will meet an all-star club
under the management of Jim Mc-
Cormick in a two-game scries at
Jack Doyle's Vertion park next Sat

ored club won the championship of
Utah and Wyoming this summer,
and is even faster than the aggre
gation which played such good ball
hero last winter under the Occi
dental colors.
Bill Pettus and Sam Langford,
two of the stars of the crack Leland
Giant colored team of Chicago, are
here and will be seen in the Occi
dental lineup. Pettus is known as
the man who hits 'em out, because
of his hammer-Ihe-fence-down bat«

no mean ability and but for his
color would be twirling professional

The All-Stars will be composed of
experienced men, some of whom
will shine in big league company
next year, and all of whom know
baseball from A to Z. Waring of
the Angels will be behind the tim
ber and Decanniere of the Louis
ville club will do the heaving.
Reiger of the St. Louis Cardinals
Will hold down first, Harris of the

The flrKt bis same of the 1910 grid
lron season wW be played at west
Point Saturday between Harvard and
the army boys. The Crimson has al
ways looked forward to this meeting
as a crisis in the season's schedule, and
although West Point is not one of
the conference schools, nevertheless
the boys are üble to put up a game
that keeps the rah-rahs on the run
from the start.
Another game which will attract the
fans of the sawdust arena is the In-.
dlan-Pennsylvania meeting at Phila
delphia. The Indians have been work-
Ing- steadily since their defeat at the
hands of Princeton hist Saturday and
;uv confident of giving the university
heavyweights a hard struggle. The
Indian team has always Men a light
one, and this year has been greatly
handicapped by the loss of many of
Its star men by graduation. The new
rules, according- to the majority of the
eastern coaches, call for a heavy
though fast line, and the combination
is something of a paradox. Carlisle
was the first of the big schools to em
phasize the value of the open style
of play and should thrive under tne
revision of the code.
Pennsylvania had a bad start. TJn
famlllarlty with the code, lack of
graduate coaches, trouble with train
ing tables, a little internal strife, all
combined to give the setback which
handicaps .1 team throughout the sea
son. An appeal to the alumni has been
answered by a swarm of veteran grid
iron stars, and since their Initial de
feat at the hands of Ursinus the husky
brood of Quaker* have been thriving
on a diet of pre-digested rules and
signal salads.
The third big game of the Saturday
schedule will be the Chicago-North
western mixing- on the Chicago field.
This will be the principal garr.o of
the western schedule and undoubtedly
will decide the championship of the
western conference colleges, Michigan
being out of the running. The Bad
gers and Northwestern will collide at
Madison, but neither team is of the
class of the two programmed for
The Minpesota eleven has been Mich
igan's chief rival during the past live
years and has been able to take Chi
cago into camp at will. Under tho
captaincy and coaching of Walter
Eckersall, probably the greatest quar
terback, punter and place kicker the
game has ever known. Chicago devel
oped into one of the greatest scoring
tn 1-bines of the west . When he giad
uated there came a slump, and up to
the present time the Chi boys have
been little in the reckoning. Eckt'isall,
however, has "come back," not in the
general meaning of the term, but has
been giving his spare moments -o elu
cidating the complications of the 'im
proved game" to the tyros In moleskins
who have been elected to the honor of
representing the Illinois, school. Kck
ersall is a coach of the snap and life
of Yost of Michigan, and he may
accomplish wonders with the nucleus
in hand. «
Yale and Walter Camp have been
synonymous terms for some time, and
the report that the sedate father of the
American game has doffed his coat
and taken to the active work of coach
ing will be welcome news to the fol
lowers of Old Eli. When Camp came
to l,os Angeles some three weeks ago
rcely keep his adopted
school from his mind. He talked Yal<>
and her football prospects from A to Z,
and even hinted that the old bulldog
might land on the 1910 pennant yet.
Yale's style has always been the great
machine mass-play formations, a style
that depended upon the whole team
working as a unit, every one helping
every one else. Under tho new code
of Yale's athletic adviser, however, the
Ell gridiron) warriors will have to dis
card their patent belts for tar.dem
plays, throw away their wonderfully
intricate yet systematized plans of
attack and defense, in fact, forget
the old football and relearn under the
tutelage of the author of the code,
Walter Camp.
Whlttier and Pomona at Claremont
will be the leading feature of the local
schedule and big Renneker and his
men are planning some surprises for
both friends arid rivals. Indeed they
have aspirations that are Influenced
by more than hope for that Intangible

New Fight Ordinance Goes Into
Effect and the Fight Bugs

Professional prize-fighting in Los
Angeles was officially killed yesterday
when the new ordinance limiting all
flstlc bouts to four rounds and pre
venting the participants from accept
ing any monetary remuneration for
their services, went into effect.
The new law allows the giving. of
prizes valued at $35 to those taking
part in the bouts, but the game is
a thing of the past as far as this city
a concerned, tor no lighter is willing
to light for the love of the game ami
there is no Incentive when all that is

Although McCarey appeared before
the city council at the time the anti
fight agitation first raised Its head,
promising to cut out rough-neck tac
tics and stalling provided the city
fathers took a liberal view of the mat
ter, the council members gave him to
understand that the game in this city
was too far gone for regeneration.
But McCarey has found a way out
of the dilemma which threatened to
put him out of business, and (hat is to
pull off the mills at the old Jeffries
arena at Vernon, where the new law
does not operate. In this way, pro
viding the supervisors do not adopt the
city ordinance and make It effective

McCaroy is'arranging to put on some
of the pork and brands who have
been facing starvation for the past six
months as an opener for the game and
later on will stage some matches
among the men who have made names
for themselves in the squared circle.

agreement to box in New Orleans on
Thanksgiving day has queered Me-

CHICAGO, Oct. 25.—That radical
changes will bo made in the personnel
of the Chicago National league club
noxt season is tho rumor here. Tim
poor showing of the Cubs in the world's
series with the Philadelphia Athletics
will result in the chopping off of old
heads galore, in the opinion of the local
fanta. The once invincible Cuba are
nothing more than a wornout machino
at the present time, and have been on
tho downward path for some time, but
the management evidently could not
see this as long as the team was win
ning. When measured against the ag
irasalveaeH and speed of the younger
Athletics the weak points of the Cubs

will not have to be shown which parts
of the former great baseball machine
need replacing.
Harry Steinfeldt, whom critics pre
dicted last spring would not last the
in out, aB ho was even then slow
ing up noticeably, will probably be tho
first to go. Harry was a great player'
in his time and did valiant work for
Chicago, but has outlived his useful
ness on a major league club, and wiil
either be forced back into the minors
or out of basebail. Sheckard and
Schulte, the two outer gardeners, are
also slated for removal, according to
the rumor, as they have played their
best ball for the team and are no long
er the players that helped to win two
world's titles for the AVindy city by
their great hitting and fielding.
Among the twirlers Brown, Reulbach,
Overall and Ffelster are going down
hill fast and will probably be obliged
to seek new bertha in the spring. A
second baseman may also be needed,
as Johnny Evers' ankle will probably
not permit him to show the speed he
was once capable of displaying.
Chance himself, who has played twelve.
years with the Cubs, may decide to
permit some younger man to take his
place at first, and if these changes go
into effect, as Is confidently expected,
the Chicago Cubs will be an entirely
new aggregation in 1911. These men
will not go without a pang of regret,
us they have been favorites of the
Windy city fans for so long that with
out them In the lineup the team will
seem strange.
