Tncflana-Ohio League Season
Opens Tuesday at Hunt
ington and Van Wert.
(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
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

gaged to head a procession of the

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
