TlfE RICHMOND PALLADIU3I AND SUN TELEGRA3I, SUNDAY, MAY 3. 10OS.
iAGE TWO. "P' AY BULL" THE NEXT POPULAR CR! Tncflana-Ohio League Season Opens Tuesday at Hunt ington and Van Wert. JESSUP IS CONFIDENT. THINKS HIS COLTS ARE ABOUT THE BEST IN THE ENTIRE CIR CUITPITCHING STAFF IS A STRONG ONE. (By Tort.) Tuesday the I- O. league "umps" will bawl nut "play b-a-a-1" and the reason of 1008 will be on. Richmond will open at Van Wert for a throe pnmes series while Muncio will open at Huntington- The schedule rails for Muncie to, open at home, but owing to the fact that the grounds at Crol ley park are not yet ready for use the Huntinfton-Muncie sanies for May .", r, and "1. have been transferred to Huntington. Y$n Wert is maMnjr big prepara tions for the opening game and it is expected that the largest crowd that eVor attended a game in hat city will be out Tuesday to witness the Quak ers and the Huckeyes give battle. f There will be an automobile parade to the grounds. While the teams are warming up, a brass band will tear off a few selections then when "his nmps" gives the signal, the mayor of the city will heave the first ball over or in the direction of the plate. Mr. Shinn is expected to strike wild ly at this ball and miss it a foot. Brown is the farthest advanced of the local pitching staff and Manager .les Kiip will probably select him to pitch Tuesday. Brown will be opposed eith er by Manager Hunt or Wagner, who is in grand form, having had the ad vantage of working out this spring In the south. Both the Richmond and Van Wert teams have suffered from lack of practice the past week owing to the (old, rainy weather but. this, it is thought, will not be a very great han dicap. "I am well pleased with the team 1 now have," states Manager .lessup, and I fail to see where any other team in the league has anything on us. In Brown, Mason. Fleming, Are emith and Conner I have a pitching staff which I am confident Is the best tn the league. Now take the infield. Can any team show a better quartet t nan Burns, Parker. Bambraugh and Bauinann? The outfield, which at first looked weak, now shows up with the best. Hurst, Cameron and Shinn w ill make them all hustle." Manager .lessup will do the bulk of the catch ing and It Is well known that, he has It on any other backstop in the league. The two teams will probably lineup as follows: Richmond Van Wert Burns First Base ....Carmony Parker.... Second Base ....Gregory Bambaugh... Third Base ....Conklin Baumann.... Short Stop ....Stewart Shinn l,eft Held dray Hurst Center Field ....Durham Cameron ....Right Field ..Bambaugh .lessup Catcher Harden Brown Titcher Hunt i lemin Pitcher Wagner HUNTINGTON IS READY. League Season to Be Given Auspic ious Opening. Huntington, lnd.. May 2. Secretary Carl Willis of the Huntington base ball association announced today that extensive preparations are under way to give the I. O. base ball season in Huntington an auspicious opening when Muncie appears in this city Tuesday next. A city band will be en gaged to head a procession of the Huntington and Muncie teams, league and association officials, city officials and members of the proposed Hunt ington Rooter club. The line of march has not yet len decided upon, but it will include most of the main down town streets. At league park. Mayor D. C. Anderson will be invited to at tempt to twirl the first ball some where near the home plate. Members of the Huntington ball team will be presented in person before the fans for the identification of those who are not already acquainted with the local warriors on Manager Jack Smith's tribe of Miamis. It Is probable that the two teams will lineup as follows: Huntington Muncie Kendall First Base Wills Strands Second Base Zellers Wltham Third Base Wise Bergrwald . . . . Short Stop Foster Smith left Field tiillis Donovan.... Center Field Hall Valanti Right Field Farman Rader Catcher Wolfe Wentz Pitcher Hay Goshorn Pitcher Biltr Trough . Pitcher Dix A Noisy Operation. A noted English suffragist was de scribing at a dinner a very disorderly suffragette meeting. "The noise." she said, "can only be likened to the hub bub that I once heard coming from the nursery of a friend with whom I Tvas taking tea. Terrified by this in fernal turmoil, my friend and I burst Into the nursery breathless. The chil dren, in a close group by the window. th baby In the middle, looked up calmly. " "What on earth are you doing?" the mother demanded. "We'Te found. said the oldest bov, poor grandma's teeth, and we're filing them down and fitting them on the Affairs of the (By Tort.) Well, everything is ready for the big league opening. Our pets play three days at Van Wert, then open here next Friday with Muncie for three game. Rah, rah. rah. This afternoon the locals will give battle to the Dayton Shilohs at Ath letic park. Jim Cameron will play his first game with the locals. The city lf-aguf was to have opened yesterday, but both games were post poned on account of cold weather. Eas,t haven was to have played the Hoosier Drills, while the Kibbeys and the Starr Pianos were to have locked horny. Karlham took the Miami tennis play ers yesterday both in the singles and in the. doubles, in the singles Beebe, of Earlham. defeated Anthony, of Mi ami. In the doubles Campbell and 1 1 ol lings worth. I'ailhani. defeated An thony and Robinson. Miami. This afternoon the V Z team will play the fa.-t. Boston team on the hit ter's grounds. A mouse took possesssion of the grand stand at Reid held yesterday afternoon during the track meet, an-d j for about five minutes the proceedings were interrupted by the shrieks of the fair co-eds, who were about to stam pede, when a .small boy captured the badly frightened mouslet. Yesterday Manager .lessup released Outfielder Hedjuk and Pitcher Bran son. Both men have made an excellent showing and would fit in well on any Class I) league team. Manager .lessup had no room for them, and he wa.s obliged to let them go. Assertions of Richmond fans about ante-season league games are not countenanced in Huntington. Prac tice games give the teams the go. and are necessary to put the players in condition for a hard campaign. Rich CAMBRIDGE GRAYS PLAY AT CONNERSVILLE Fans Accompany Team There Today. Cambridge City. Ind.. May 2.-- The Grays will go to Connersville Sunday to try and pull one over on the Con nersville aggregation.

Benny Yanger. who was one of the best little fighters in the business sev eral years ago. has quit the ring and now intends' to take up the wrestling game. He and Eddie Tancel. another fighter of Chicago, have been signed up for a wrestling bout to be decided in Chicago on May 7. They will wrestle for a side bet of Sl. and the entire gate receipts. Yanger will make little money at this sport. First Baseman Stovall of the Cleve lands is working hard to make good his threat to beat out Lajoie in batting this season. At the present writing he has quite a hunch on his chief. Up in Chicago they have added cof fee to the refreshments that are served during games, "ot dogs" also being on the menu. In Cincinnati the "sausage eaters" prefer beer with theirs. Billy Campbell's friends presented him with a diamond ting at the game in Pittsburg Saturday afternoon.

As long as Jim is determined to keep out of the fighting game, his weight is of no more interest, to the ring followers than that of Presiden Roose velt, who is said to hover lightly about the 2; mark.
