Qelte a Basrk at Moaey Ssteat is.
aaally Hasting Stars for Blgt
No expense has been spared by the own
ers of the clubs In the two major league
to make the season one of the greatest in
tho history of base ball. Before any of the
players had started to draw hla salary con.
aiderably more than 1600.000 had been ex
pended In preparing for the season. The
figure will bo nearer to SLOOO.000 If the re
pairs to tho ball parks and erection of new
stands are taken Into consideration.
By far the greatest expense borne by
the owners has been the cost of tho new
players, obtained In an effort to strengthen
ths teams for the present campaign. Each
of the sixteen clubs in the big leagues
signed on an average of twenty young
Players, stars of the minor leagues. These
players cost the owners about 6300.000 In
cash, this money going to tha coffers of
the minor league owners who had the
youngsters under contract. Soma of these
rising young players were sold with the
understanding that a bonus should bo paid
if they were retained In tha service of the
major league clubs after being tried out.
Ths bonuses which must bo paid under
these circumstances by ths major leagues
amount to nearly fltsVOOO. These young
sters consequently represent an Investment
of approximately 6400.000.
Tet this does not begin to cover ths
total expenses of the club owners. Ths
players obtained must be tried out la tha
southern training camps in order that their
real worth may be dlncerned. While the
regular players run up the expenses of
these camps as well as the recruits, the
latter form one of the chief concerns of
tho managers, snd It haa been estimated
that the club owners have expended 6300,
000 in maintaining training quarters this
spring In order to Cod out whether the
players who coat them 6400,000 are worth
anything or not. John L Taylor, president
of ths Boston Red Sox. chartered special
Pullman cars to take his squad of forty
odd players to the Pacific coast and back.
at great expense. The White Box special,
which was chartered by President Comla-
key of tha Chicago Americans, cost C0.000,
and only carried the team to Texas snd
back, stopping over for exhibition games.
All tha other clubs maintained expensive
camps m ths south
In order to get tha roost brilliant young
sters tn tho minor leagues every major
league club keeps two or three salaried
scouts traveling from ono end of the coun
try to tho other, going over ths "bush"
leagues with a fins tooth comb In order
that no "future great" may escape. Few
there are Indeed who are overlooked by
tha eagle eyes of ths cleverest judges of
base ball players. The expense of these
scouts la charged up as well against the
recruits, and would probably amount to
another 6100,000 for the sixteen cluba
In tbo neighborhood of 6700.000, there
fore, it has cost tha managers of ths big
leagues to look over the best baa bail
talent which appeared in the minors last
season. When ail is said and dona It
seems to bo spent mors to satisfy their
euriositr than anything else. If oas or
two players out of tho twenty odd signed
by a club are found worthy to warm the
bench on which tha stars of a team sit
a manager feels that ha la fortunate In
deed. Tho rest are turned back to the
minors and sold at a great sacrifice. As
caatotfa of ths big leagues they are not
oonsklered to be worth much, and minor
league owners are not prone to paying ths
fancy prices which they demand from their
major league com pee ra
This ""-"" sum Is annually spent and
email la the tangible return. Very often
a major league manager will not find
youngster whom he can keep, but, after
ail, when he knowa that there la no star
fwnnig those whom be haa tried out he ia
content. For It la a defensive practice as
well as offenaivs, this obtaining of re
erulta While ona manager may not need
a brilliant Infielder ha likea to keep another
manager from getting him. Tha real ea-
aaaoo of ths matter Is nothing leas than a
never i easing search tor another Christy
Mathowaon, another Tyrua Cobb or
other Hocus Wagner. If tea years of
hunting reveals a star of this type and
ao thing slaa. the efforts of a asanas
have bean rewarded beyond price, for tho
value of such players to a cJub can hardly
bo reckoned la dollars and cents. The sin
which can never bo condoned In to let an
other manager obtain such a star. New
