CASUAL, readers might Bet the im
' presalon, from publish statistic,
that tho "Western lea true Is de
veloping1 a rnca of Brbbdlgnagtan
sluggers this season. Several of
the bat wielders are rated at above .800
in the matter of batting averages. Others
are well above tho .400 line, while the .300
hitters ate so Common that It Isn't much
of a distinction just at this time to be
in that list. If this wore on really and
truly form, the condition would be one
for congratulation. As a matter of fact,
tho hitters of tho Western league oro no
better this year than last Tho advantage
they have had Is that not a Western
league pitcher has shown form, let-alone
class, this season. The whole roster Is
weak, and tho batters have had an oppor
tunity they are not likely to ever soei
again. Just what the trouble is the.
wisest of tho managers havo not been
able to fathom. All the teams went south
to prepare for the opening of the season;
many games were played In lnterclub
exhibitions, and the word that was sent
home was that the pitchers wero all on.
edgo, and that the Western was about to
see tho best base boll ever served out
around tho circuit. Up to date It has
been about tho punk est. This is not sold
with reference to any particular team,
but is Intended as comprehensive It is
all duo to weakness in tho pitching de
partment. Tho tremendous hitting in the
Western is not likely to go much further,
for the pitchers will either havo to get
busy, or some now names will be seen In
the ,box scores.
Walter Johnson's record of runless

pitching that it not likely to be touched

twice, which Is proof of tho quality of
twirling done by this now marvel of the

the character of help given htm by eight
other men on the team.
Jumbo Btlohm will have to struggle
along next fall without the aid of a spe

of the Omaha alumni; and the Corn

better team again. Ob, very well.

This season most of tho class "A"
leaders nave assembled well balanced

quence an unusual tough battle Is antici
pated for the 1913 gqnfalon. At that It
seems as though Mr, Fate has dealt some

Just like a cork floating In the "Mtssoo,"
bobbing up nnd odwn. The Shamrocks
and Townscnds are two tenuis that as
yet have failed to hit their stride. They
have got the material, but are not de
livering It up to capacity, Tho trouble
with the Shamrocks has been tho pitch
ing department, Hut now as this defeat
has been doctored up they will In all
probability kick through with tha
groceries. Coaching Is playing a .mora
prominent part than heretofore. Some of
the boys are taking lessons in different
ways to tear up the turf for the su
preme purpose of exciting the opposi
tion, of course.
To lie Good JUIx.
Without a doubt, tho best card that
will be Introduced to tho bugs this sea
son will bo dished out at Rourke park
this afternoon. The initial mix which
will Btart promptly at one ring and a
half, will be between the Alamltos and
tho Ancient Order of United Workmen
squad. Holland, the left paw wizard,
will work for the lodge tribe and
Morearty will heavo 'em for tho milk
representatives. Immediately after this
contest Is history, tho Stori Triumphs
will take another whirl at the much
touted and far famed All Nations. Last
Sunday those two squads assailed each
other In a Joublc-decker, In which the
All Natlon'i escaped with both games
by the small margin of one point The
reason why the Storz lost was because
they failed to connect with the puzzlers
dlshod out by the Cuban, Mendez, and
tho chocolate colored Donaldson. It Is
worth the price and then some to see
either one of thesa foreign gentlemen
work. The Storz have been shooting
around the loquacious Junk that they
aro going to put the All Nations in cap
tivity today. They aro going into the
battle With firm determination to ooze,
through the front door, consequently the
opposition will have to step some if they
even want to gaze at the sweetmeats.

When the Chicago Cub machine was
thundering through the major league
ah Irresistible force this trio of diamond
Caesars stood at tho apex of their great
organization. "Tinker to Chanoe to
Evers" was tho suouTnt phrase which
proclaimed tha Impregnable defense be
hind which the mighty Cubs raced to
four pennants and two world's series.
Chance was the manager, the brilliant
field marshal who perfected, if ho did
not build up, this indomitable combina
tion. His name was the one most to
conjure with In base boll. It stood for
victory, for efficiency, for base ball gen
eralship unexampled. Then, two years
ago, tho grand oJd machine began to
of-fore at Florence pork for today. Tho
first row will bo the Florence Athletics
against tho Fontenelles and the second
Jamboree Stars and Stripes against
Foresters. All four teams belong to class
"B," but they put up a fine article of
base ball. The first mix will commenco
at 1:30 o'clock.
Our dandy little boys that rep

they will endeavor to hand the village

On the Crelghton field, the Brodegaard
Crowns will buck up against the Crelgh
ton Annex team at about three bells.
The Crowns will have to liven their
pace a trifle If they expect to cop tho
sweetmeats. Bell will wing 'em for
the Brodegaards, and Murphy will bo on
the slab for the college dudes.
Down on the turf at Dletz park a couple

dance around with the Townsends. Par

crockery for tha Townsends, while
Speedo Ourness will work for the oppo
sttlon. After this meleo the Moose club
and the Hoctor Drummers will take a
Whirl at each other.
This morning at eight bells, the Mon
mouth Paries will leave for Elkhorn,
where they cross bats with the fast
bunch of that burg. 'Baker, who last
year pitched for the Toung Men's Hebrew
association, will do the heaving for the
Parks, while Murphy will also be taken
On the Crelghton field, Sunday at two
bells, the Crystals will play the Crelghton
