Frank Chance Is amusing himself, with
Pitcher Lineld and a few other big dia
mond ball players, by engaging In some
amateur contents on the Pacific coast this
winter. Th other day a game, or rather a
fluke, was played between San Jose and
Stockton at Oakland, and tha Sporting
News has this to say of it:
The final San Jose-Stockton game played
st Idora park Sunday afternoon was a
farciutl performance which was wen by the
former by the score of 7 to 0. it wasn t the
good playing of the so-called San Jose
team which was responsible for Its victory,
but the poor work of the aggregation which
represented the San Joaquin metropolis.
Captain Danny Shay of Stockton, whom
the New York Giants are trying to Induoe
to return east next season, wns one of the
chief offenders of his side in the matter ot
mlscues. Almost every time he got hold of
the ball he hurled It into the crowd In fact,
the greenest amateur from Cow Hollow
could liave put up aa good a game as tlis
mucn-touted uanny. 1'erhapa It was over-
