Thomas J. Lynch, the new president
of the National League is 1 years
of age and still quite a spring chicken
when it comes to the name. He is
at present manager of a lyceum bur
eau. Soxalexis, the great Ind'an player
who hud them all skinned a few
years ago but wad jut out of the game
Umpire J. Barleycorn, has been liv
old condition and get into the panic
next year. Sox was a great player,
but his excessive use of the juice v.-
too much for him.
Xagle, the A. A. pitcher witli Lin
coln team last season is spending his
winter in the logging camps of .Michi
gan. Xagle was a good pitcher
but lucked the physique to stand a
hard game. With a strong, consti
tution he would be a valuable man
to the Links.
Johnnie (Jonding the popular cat
cher for the Omaha team, and who has
been one of t!r best catchers in the
West for several years, wouM make
a mighty fine umpire. Johnnie is not
as young as he used to be, and while
he can , make many of the younger
fellows take a back seat, yet it is only
a question of a year or so when he will
probably have to step to one side.
The Western League needs good um
pires more than it needs good catchers
and President O'Xeill could not do
the game a greater service in the West
ern than to appoint (ionding on the
staff of umpires.. We have seen him
'umpire and knows he lias the goods.
At last the deal has been eotisu-
mated which takes Pueblo out of tin
Western League and transfers the fran
chise to St. Joe. John Holland, last
year manager of the Wichitas, is the
new owner, which means a whole
lot to the success of the game in the
new location. Holland paid ?.,
or the Pueblo franchise and takes it
o a city which let its former franchise
go to Lincoln four years ago for So!)!).
It is hoped that base ball in St. Joe has
picked up a little bit.
Detroit, the American league cham
pions will cut down their playing force
for next season and have already let
loose eight of their young players.
Hoy Corhan, the crack shortstop
of the Pueblo club last year, has an
offer to manage a team in the Colorado
state league next season, and says that
the Pueblo team is sold to St, Joe
that he will quit the game and ax
cept the management of the club.
