Dooin Says They at:e Un
daunted by Raid—"Tells
What he Expects to do.
TJie hopes of Charles Dooin, man
ager of- the Phillies, have not been
blasted by the Federal league raid on
his club. This Is the situation of the
club since he has begun training In
Wilmington, N. C., as he has ex
pressed them to some friends.
We are undaunted by the raid the
Federals have made upon our club
and will tackle our task with renewed
courage, despite the fact that we
have lost enough good players to
form the backbone of any club. It
was tough to learn that such pitchers
as fieaton, Camnitz, and Brennan, In
fielders Knabe and Doolan and Out
iiulder Duncan had been stolen from
us and for .a. time we felt blue over
the outlook. But, the material we
.are working on looks good and be
fore the race Is half over I am sure
we shall be making our presence felt.
No other clnb in either league suf
fered as much as we did and we are
starting under a big handicap, but we
are making no alibis for future use
and will go along playing ball to the
best of our ability.
Serious Problem,
The absence of Doolan and Knabe
at the pivotal corner was a serious
problem, but I believe we have
found the answer. For shortstop we
have Herbert Murphy, one of the
most promising youngsters it has ever
been my fortune to handle. He is
a natural ball player and thus far has
shown fielding form quite equal to
Iioolun's. His hitting promises to be
better and 1 don't, believe we shall
miss Doolan for one day. For
Knabe's position at second we have
Bobby Byrne, the third baseman wn
secured from Pittsburgh, and his
work at second Is satisfactory. Being
a veteran he will help to steady Mur
phy and I predict that my Infield will
not. be Inferior to that of X918.
For my pitching staff I have Alex
ander, Mayer, Chalmers, Rlxey and
Marshall of last year's team and they
form a pretty nifty start. It will be
hard to replace Seaton, who won
twenty-seven games In 1913, but we
are lucky in having some youngsters
who look good, although we cannot
tell positively until they are tried
against big league teams. At that, If
my five veteran twlrlers deliver the
goods I need not worry about the
kids, although I shall continue to try
them out for all they are worth.
Five Outfield Material.
So far as the outfield is concerned
I have some fine material to draw
upon and with six men to choose
from there should be no weakness
there. Magee, Cravath, Becker, De
vore, Paskert, and Hllley are the
candidates and there is no club in
