THREE TEAMS WANT
TO ENTER S. A. L.
Only three baseball teams have sig
nified willingness to enter the S. A. L.
if such a league Is formed next sum
mer. These three teams are the A.
S. M., the Starr, and the Robinson
Other teams will probably enter If
the league is formed but none have
said so at this time. .
The organization meeting will be
held Wednesday night, Feb. 5, at the
Y. M. C. A., according to Sam Vigran,
last year's president of the league.
Anyone interested in the welfare of
this league and having any Ideas on
the organization of the league for next
year should attend this meeting as
well as the representatives from the
various teams. .
It is expected that the games will
be played at Exhibition park or at
the Athletic park if they are played
at all. Committees to decide where
playing is to be done will be appointed
Whether the S. A. L. will be started
will be decided and also It will be de
cided whether it will be best to start
if the Central league decides to go
again this year.
The league officials hope to have
teams enter into the race representing
the National Automatic Tool Works,
the Starr Piano company, F. and N.
Lawn Mower company,' American
Seeding Machine company, the Penn
sylvania Railroad company, Jenkins
Vulcan Spring company, Johnson
Sheet Metal Works, and a number of
other concerns, but it looks as if
there will not be that many teams en
tered at present.
The Simplex team will probably not
be a contender for the title of .the
S. A. L., next year as the factory
force has been cut down. Last year
the Simplexers were "champs" after
winning the last game from the Natco
team. The Natco team had held the
championship for two years previous
to that time.
Many of the players are keeping in
