Rod: Island has had no professional ball
team for several seasons, but there wasn't
a game played in Davenport during all
last summer that didn't find a crowd from
this side of the river on hand and doing as
much jelling as anybody. It has always
been a good base ball town when any'
thine that looked like a base ball nine
struck this place, but the lovers of the
game have been caught more than
once on "horsey" playing and it
has somewhat dampened their ardor
But tee Twin-City management has a
good U am signed as have most of the
other clubs, and unless all signs fall the
towns who are fortunate enough to be in
the Illinois-Indiana league will see some
good bull this summer.
The only thing that is bothering the
manage ment now is the locatiou of the
grounds, but it is thought that this will
be settkid in a day or two, and that they
will be ottec in shape in time to give the
a boys few days' practice before the open
ing of the season. Our boys open the
season with the ''Distillers" at Peoria,
and if they can take a good drag out of
that club they will then be in good con
dition to walk into hoosierdom and prop
erly den onstrate that the Twin-City boys
are atarting out to play ball. It has been
decided that it one of the official umpires
is unablo.to be on hand at a game the lea
gue directors will select three menJfrom
whom an umpire will be chosen. This
will only be necessary when the official
umpire is unable, to attend or after he
has bees taken away in the patrol wagon.
