Evers Plans to Develop
Great Speed on the
Training Trip.
Mnnaper Evers of the Chicago Cubs
1b not a speed marvel on the base
lines. He in not as fast as Frank
Chance was when the latter first took
Command of the West Ride team, but,
he is better than the ordinary base
stealer and probably will show great I
er speed next summer, having gained
his former confidence In the lee which
he broke in Cincinnati In lf10
Evers. although not the fastest man
in the leapue. probably beat out as
many bunts If not more than Rob i
Bencher, the league's leading base!
stealer He alEo had better success
in that line than Carey of Plltsburc
and Campbell of Boston Thc .-ire
close to 10-MCOfld men, but have not
"fattened" their batting average by
successful bunts
Many of the hits in the list thn
gave Evers an average of .341 las
year were bunts Evers was not foi
tunate in this because of his remor!
able speed, but owing to outgucs-ri
the third baseman. The third sncker
in tho organization did not play u,
for Evers all the time, as they dl
not look for him to bun often. Pre
quenth when he came to the plate
thev crept up a few feet, thinking h'
might try to slip one over Evers by 1
making vicious swats at the ball In
duced them to no back to their orig
inal positions No sooner had they re
turned than Evers tapped the ball
nlons the foul line and was safe on
first base.
I Athletes may have lots of speed and
may be like a flash in eolng down to
first, base and jet they will not sue
ceed in beating out as many bunts
ns Even and the men who know when
to bunt There Is an art In knowing
when and how to bunt There is not
a cleverer m.-n !n th- game than Ev

I did this because he was a strum; ad

Evers plani to have all of his men

Chance Contract Only
Guesswork Hard
Task Is Ahead.
A lot of unnecessary excitement has
been created by the announcement
that Frank Chance would draw (40,000
per season from the Now York club
for the next three years Some of
Hie critics have become alarmed .nd
pointed out thai baseball cannot af
ford such salaries and that the
game's end Is near at hand if such
extravagdnoe is encouraged.
Only a few people know just ivhat
Chance's contract calls for. The fig
ures have not been made public anil
those published arc the result ol
mere guesswork
But there will be no $46,000 propo
rtion, that 16 a certainty. That is
more money than Frank Parrel! has
made with the NTe, York club tince
he has been In business. What assur
ance has he that even as capable a
ruan ns Chance can earn that much
money'' Winning ball teams are sel
dom made overnight, and Chance is
lot apt to perform miracles even nt
the figure mentioned. In their el
ions io doosi me t nam e deal, some
ol the scribes have made It rather dif-
j 'icult for Chance Naming fabulous
figures us a salary may lend folks
0 believe that there Is no doubt ;hat
'hance will make the Highlanders
vlnners rlKht from the jump. So that
1 by July the team is not prominent
in the race there is apt to be some
'cud how ling
Rut if th" truth were known it
would probably he found that Chance
is not being overpaid He Is no doubt
uettlnc a good '.lalnry. but the chances
are that there are other managers
who are faring Inst as well
