Manager! Are Weeding Out the Chaff
and Strengthening, Their .
A report from Lincoln says that Eddie
Qagnier, the Antelope shortstop, is In bet
ter physical condition than he has been in
years. He la full of ginger, says the report,
and he Is hitting the ball hard. A successful
year la predicted for him.
Arrangements .are being made . by the
fane of St. Joseph1 for an excursion to be
run to the first Sunday game that .will be
played In Topeka between the Drummer
and the Cooleyltes, and. th St. Joe
scribes predict that there will be a' larger
attendance of Drummer fan at -the game
than Topeka fan. Is this a presj-agent
gag thrown out aa a sort of roast by the
SL Joe bunch to bring put a big bunch of
Raft Is, the new Inflelder procured by Des
Moines wants to get away from the Boost
er. Ha ha a desire to play with Blng-
hamton, N. Y and Inasmuch as Nlehoff
ha reported for. work hi desires are liable
to be gratified, although he may have to
report to Dee Moines.
Owen, the new pitcher, recently obtained
by Des Moines, look pretty good to the
fan who have watched him work and the
general feeling 1 that he Will be a great
help to the Boosters this year.
'Manager "Babe" Towne of the Sioux ay
that the practice of stealing ball by boys
after they are batted over the fence haa
to be stopped and the first offender who
I caught attempting to make away with a
sphere will be arrested.
Manager Towne-closed a deal with Joe
Cantlllon by which he came Into posses
sion of Lee Qulllln and "Klddo" Wilson,
Lee will be a great help to the Sioux' game
at short and a Wilson did good work on
the slab for the Indians In the last day
of the 1909 season, the fan of the city up
north feel highly elated over the 'deal.
First Baseman Oxe of the Sioux City
team haa been turned over, to Lew Drill,
manager of the Monmouth . team of the
Minnesota-Wisconsin' league. Manager
"Babe" Towne farmed him, but on account
of the good ahowlng he made In the spring
try-out wants him where he can get him
If needed. He also farmed Heinle Rossback
to the Wlnnepeg club of the Northern
league. ' Rosback looked ' mighty good to
the Sioux City, fans and If la expected he
will shine as a star In the Northern league.
Dea Molnea still' hope' to land Frank
Lange for "a.' member of It pitching Btaff.
Announcement was made this week that
one of the White Sox pitchers would have
to be released and the dope Indicates that
Lange would be the one to go. . When nt
Des Molnea last week, Frank remarked
that the atmosphere, of the. Iowa' capital
looked good to him, arid that If he waa to
be pushed off the Sox staff there, was no
place that would suit him better than Des
Moines. This' announcement on hi 'part
comes In the face of a rumor that he did
not care to go back to the Boosters.
Cooley nays h,e only fears two clubs lp
the league this year,, and they - are Das
Moines , and Omaha. He . believes Denver
will' be weaker than his club, and does not
rate Lincoln and Sioux City much above
Denver. He does not comment on Wjchita.
That Daniel' Boone boy who was picked
up off the back lot of Wichita by Ixule
1 certainly getting the grapes early In
the"' Reason. If he can make It stick he
will' doubtless develop into a phenom. 'He
handed a cold bunch to the White Sox
and th St.' , Louis Browns, and on 1 the
Oklahoma.' trip he haa been doing things.
The Grlxzlles were walloped by a pick-up
team Sunday and the Denver fans are
stepping ou, thnlr lower lips a a result.
At-that, tho pick-ups were not amateurs
by any means, but numbered aom stars
from the Paelfla Coast league, ex-Western
league players and others who know the
Pitchers Jorstad, ' Young and Knowles
were released this week by Manager Hen
dricks of the Grlzilles. They did not ap
pear heavy enough and Manager Jack Is
now ' looking around for material to take
their places. The slogan, of the Denver
manager roi to be -to get the hct ob
tainable. The release of these three leaves
Denver with Olmstead. Schrelber, Olllen,
Adam. Herbert and Mitchell.
An enthurlaatlo report cornea from . , St.
Joseph regarding the predicted success of
the Drummers this season. The fans of
the city are showing -a spirit of loyalty to
their 'team that indicates that as far; aa
the financial end of , the gams is concerned
there will be nothing lacking., The at
tendance at tha exhibition game haa been
exceedingly gratifying to the management.
It looka like some of the other cities of
the Western league 'will have to 'gat into
the game to mn St. Joe a race for the at
tendance mark. ; -

The first stunt on the program waa three
rounds of boxing with Bob Armstrong,
the colored heavyweight. Commencing with
defensive tactics in the first round to Im
prove his speed and foot work, Jeffries,
who Is not much given to' backing away,
was soon chasing the big negro all over the
ring. Armstrong was glad when it was
over. Jeffries' speed was a trifle better
than last Monday, but . it was evident he
still needs a lot of boxing practice to be
anything like his former self. Bag punch

Berger thought the undefeated champion
waa a bit off in his work.
"He'i worried," said Berger, "and I know
his heart was not in anything he did this
