REGULARS CANNOT SEE
WHY YANNIGANS BEAT THEM WITH SUCH EASE Presence of Manager Smith on “Chicken” Team May Be the" Reason —Long Morning Practise a Success. % * IFrom o Staff Correspondent.! SAVANNAH, Ua„ March 24.—Eight regular balllossers tossed sleeplessly last night trying to figure out be tween weird and weary dreams some manner or method of beating out these pesky rooicies. The “regs” p can't quite understand why they shouldn'twipe up the earth -with the second team Manager Smith IWs welded together. Perhaps It is that old secret of Harry Smith's magnetic personalty. Fans who were most faithful last spring when the Tigers were going had recall how the luck always seemed to change when Smith was in the line-up and how the Bengals won game after game which Harry caught, while they lost time after time when Harry was not on hand. Harry has placed himself on the Second nine in order to make the first team hustle harder to win. The Ben gal commander explains that he doesn't look upon spring training trips as a pleasure picnic for a hunch 4 of husky athletes. Just to try his luck Harry may change today to the regular line-up to see what effect it has on their work The Yannigans have trimmed the Bn-called first team twice In three at tempts and they had the lead In a fourth- game which was stopped by rain. Smith let the practise contest go twelve innings on Saturday to see If lhe regulars could win out, hut the . Wonderful pitching of young Kunkle completely baffled the vanquished nine. Another Reason. Another reason why the Yannigans are winning more often is just this The YanniganB are composed chiefly of youngsters and it takes less time for the spring chicken to be tender than it does for the player further advanced in years to boll out. Man ager Bill Clymer, of the Buffalo Club, is desperately jealous of the Tigers’ chances for the pennant. Bill wants an infielder and wants him worse than Bill Bryan wanted to live in the White House on three different oc casions. Clymer, however, deserves little sympathy when he railroads a msn like Starke out of the league and takes Roach in his place. A-new Billy Zimmerman popped up in camp today—no he ddtn't come to Join the Tigers—the Bengals could use a half dozen "B. Z.'s" like our P. Q. N. This Billy Zimmerman is a brother of the famous Heinie Zim merman. of the Chicago Cubs. A second-sacker by trade, he came down for a tryout witji the savannah team. This "Zlm" Is a likely looking youngster, ’ though lie hasn’t his brother's rugged build. They sat though he is a clever ballplayer and a credit to the family which produced the National League champion pill mauler of 1912 Long Morning Practise a Success. The plan of holding a long prac tise in the morning proved a popular success Saturday and will he foi lowed out today. The regulars, fifteen strong, includ ing pitchers and catchers, entrained for Charleston, H. this afternoon, to play games there Tuesday and Wednesday. Young Arthur Wendt will likely he sent home or dropped altogether If his arm does not round Into ^Jiope soon. Young "Po'.ly" Kunkle prac tically won his spurs on Saturday when his showing pleased Smith so much that Harry predicted a brilliant future for him. But “Polly” is young and a trifle light for the interna tional League, and a season in the "bushes" will be the best kind of training for him. Kunkle and Al. Shack are. included in the list of Ben gal warriors who will go to Charles ton. Hi Myers will also get his chance to make good, as was pre dicted In Saturday's Evening Star. Bill Collins will be left at Savannah nursing a sore arm. Manager Smith intends to shift Dalton to right Held today and play Myers in the middle garden. F. J. BENDED. Fresh from Savannah The regulars are beginning to wal lr>l> out the extra-base wallops and are showing more speed on the- base lines every day. Some of the boys were crabbing last week because the pitchers were buz zing them across the plate in mid stasnn style. Swaclna struck at one for, a third strike, which was three feet wide of the plate. A curve ball at this stage of the game looks like the writing on a Chinese tea box to the average player. It is a mystery why some players can hit better in the spring than when the weather warms up, while other diamond stars fail to hit their natural pace until mid-season. A team that gets away ton well in the spring is seldom the pennant winner. The Ti gers are apt to hang around third place on the International League ladder until the Fourth of July, and then "look out above,” will he the Slogan. A day seldom passes without some Compliment being handed to Young Barcklow by Manager Smith. Harry said yesterday he might shift the youngster to first base, just for exper iment, as the kid has expressed a liking for that perch. At least three of the newcomers can cover first base capably, Gus Getz is a handy man at that ling, though he jdoes not take to shortstop or second *hase. Kavanaugh is by no means a bushy flrst-sacker and Barcklow will have Ills chance to show soon. What. Smith needs, however, is a utility in ■ fielder, who can go in any place and fill in hi a. pinch. A man such as Kddie Fitzpatrick, of the Toronto team, last year. The weekly expenses of the club down here amount to about $500 a week, according to Business Manager Sutton. *"Rut we are getting results," says Larry, "and that's all we ask.” The games at Charleston should furnish the first real tests for the Bengals. The Yannlgans have wal loped the first team twice now In three attempts, but the Yannlgans .have had the best pitchers on their side— Billiard Tables Household Refrigerators cijppiIFS Bar Fixtures repairs The Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. of IVew Jersey k 22(1 MARKET STREET. NEWARK. by best pitchers we mean those who are just now In the best condition. Saturday was the best day the Tit gers had since arriving here. There was very 1 ittlo wind and the sun was hot enough to thaw out the wings of every man in the squad. Kven Prince Haskell enjoyed the workout, pitching three innings after batting fungocs and chasing flies for an hour. If (here was room for another pitcher on the Tigers’ staff.

If Lew MCcarty continues to hit ns he has been doing in the practise games here, Msc will have a poling mark of .350 in hay time. Harry Smith intended lo surprise the boys with a nice new Raster suit, but a local tailor threw Harry down at the last minute, and Harry will have to wait until next week to sport his new logs. Some of the boys cele brated Raster by wearing straw hats for the first time thfh season. The Wheeling Club is the (fifth) minor league club lo put In a bid for Tiger youngHters. Buffalo, Wilkes barre, Sioux City, Troy and York are the other applicants for the Tigers’ surplus stock. $19,000 IN PURSES FOR .GRAND RAPIDS MEETING GRAND RAPIDS, Mlcty,, March 24. —Nineteen thousand dollars will be offered in tlie early closing events of the grand circuit race meeting be ginning bore July 28, it was an nounced yesterday.

INNISFAILS TALLY TWICE IN LAST HALF, EVENING 2-0 LEAD HUDSON HAD ENJOYED 4 Harrison Players Show Su periority in First Ses sion Decidedly. .. .... • Although the West Hudsons had a two-goal load on the lnnisfatls Stars, of St. Eouls, in the second exhibition of the latter's Eastern tour at West Hudson Athletic Field, Harrison, yes terday afternoon, the home club was unable to hold the Westerners in check and the latter evened up the score during the closing minutes of play In the final period. The Mts sourlans outplayed theHudaons during, the flnnl session, but the superiority of the home club in the first half about balanced things. During the opening period, with the wind in their favor, the Hudsons, ably led by George Knowles and Harry (?ooper, treated the crowd, which numbered between two and three thousand, to some wonderful passing. Their combination work proved one of the most pleasing features of a finely contested game. It was only during the final few minutes of play in the Initial period that the visiting eleven began to show its speed. The Hudsons were bewil dered, and on the restart the ball was brought to the Hudson territory, there to stay until the end of the battle practically. The Western eleven s repeated rushes seemed to disconcert the home hoys, and only wonderful work by Lakeley, the Hudson goaltender, saved the day for his team. The visitors passed Iho ball accurately during the final half, using the short passing style of play. The forwards seldom raised the leather, and even when near the goal depended upon low drives to score. There was a pair of players—one from each team who stood the most conspicuous during the game and who were a long way above the ordi nary in their work. These were George Knowles, of the Hudsons, and Cap tain James McCaffery, of the Innis* falls team. The former was probably | the only Hudson man who was not exceled by his opponent during the | entire game. If is wonderful passing, i dribbling and sensational ^oal in the first period were features in every way. But McCaffery’s goal in the last period, the one which enabled his eleven to tie matters, topd out more prominently than anything else. He received the hall in midfield, and Just when everyone was expecting the dark-haired centre forward to whip the hall across the field he started maneuvering with the sphere, beat ing man after man on the Hudson eleven until he faced the goalkeeper, I whom he outjudged, and tallied. The effort of Knowles was almost equally as brilliant. Ho was given possession of the ball when the Westerners were pressing him hard, and after tricking a pair of lnnisfails players shot low and fast twenty feet from the goal wdth mighty force. Tlie Game. With a light wind to their backs, the Hudsons kicked off. Cooper brought the ball up the field and crooked to McHolland, who made a KURTZ AND HOWARD BELOW THE LIMIT Young Kurtz and Johnny Howard, who meet at the Hillside A. C. to morrow night, are down to the stipu lated weight, 156 pounds. Kurtz weighed 150 today and Howard 151 pounds, thereby easing the minds of their managers, who had posted *50 forfeits for weight. In the six-round semi-linal event, hetweep Young Cardell, of Montclair, and Joe Tierney, of Elizabeth, no weight requirement will be in order, but, according to the respective man agers of the pair, neither will weigh more than 120 pounds, assuring the spectators of a fast featherweight contest. neat try, liut missed, the leather bounding outside. Andy Kettles, one of the Innisfails' backs, Juggled the leather down the lield, centreing to Schw&rtz, bat the latter's attempt for a point was quickly halted when Goal tender Lakeley, of the Hudsons, made a beautiful “save.” The leather again bounded up to Hudson territory and "Kid” Knowles, receiving .Ala leather from McLean, smashed the ball through the uprights for the first goal of the game. It was a lucky shot, however, the ball hitting the left post and then bounding through. Almost a minute later the Hudsons scored their second and final point of the contest. Kettles, standing Just twenty feet from his own goal, committed a foul, touching the leather —unintentionally it seemed—with his hands. Lennox made the try and eas ily scored. The Easterners outclassed the West erners during the initial period. Cooper had several tries, but missed, as did McHolland, Knowles and Lennox be cause of their inaccuracy. The visiting team depended too much upon their captain and centre forward, Jimmy McCaffery. They were slow in passing and on almost every occasion waited until their leader was in a good position to shoot. He was the speediest of the entire team every inch of the way, but more than one was needed to keep pace with Tom Adam's stalwarts. Viet nr* poor Nenr l> ol^l. Time and again the Innisfails men would bring the leather down the field within scoring distance *n the first half, but a Hudson man would beat him to the kick almost every time. Over-anxiousness was another fault of the visitors. George Peters, outside right, had Ihree good opportunities In the Initial session to tally, but each time ho booted out of hounds. James Easton was another Innisfails player who couid not steady himself. Three minutes before the fhistle blew for half-time the 'Western lads showed their real form. From this time on until the end they outclassed the Hudson team almost to a man. The Second Half. After play beKan the ball was soon near the Hudsons’ goal. Peters centred to Easton, but the lattcr’s kick .towards the uprights was blocked by McAllister. Peters had another try? but the* leather went high. The ball came down the field and Knowles had a try on a good pass from McLean, but kicked wide. Cooper tried for a MARTIN WILL MEET RILLY MORROW IN TROXLER’S RING Billy Morrow, of this city, and Mat Matter, the Paterson heavyweight sparring partner of Billy Lewis, will come together In the main four round bout at the Central Institute tonight.

A moment later the Hudson crew gained a corner kick, but Knowles shot over the bar. Cooper had two tries in succession, but on both occa sions none of his teammates were in a good position to help him. The leather went up the field and MeCaf* fery’s sensational attempt to score was blocked by great work on the part of Lakeley. A corner kick was awarded the vis itors, but Schwartz’s good centre went for naught, as McAllister again hoot ed out of danger. A moment later Schwartz was directly in front of the Hudson uprights, but missed. After Peters bombarded the Hudson posts three consecutive times, failing in all attempts, he passed to Jimmy Hag erty, who scored. After the ball had been kicked to the Innisfalls' territory, giving Knowles a try, it was returned, and in midfield McCaffery took the leather from his teammate, Peters. He Juggled, it up the Held, dodging three Hudson players, and scored. It was the best shot of the day find the Inst The Hudsons were inclined to “rough it” a little at this stage. Play was strenuous on both sides. With only ten minutes left each eleven tried its mightiest to score. The Innisfails were playing a little faster game at this point. The ball neared the Innisfalls’ posts, but won derful defensive work—the style which saved them a defeat at the hands of the Hibernians at Philadel phia Saturday—wan now in evidence. Rogers hooted to midfield after Cooper, Knowles and McLean failed to score, and McCaffery again got his feet around the little sphere. He passed a trio of Hudsonites after some remarkable footwork, but his efforts were blocked by one Mr. Lakeley, who again saved for the Hudsons. Easton missed the last opportunity to score and the contest was over.
