UUGH1E FULLERTON FIRES
FIRST SHOT IN DRIVE TO
DOPE BIG LEAGUE WINNERS
Famous Base Ball Sage Size Up Innumerable Problems
Which Have Arisen to Complicate Approaching
Major League Seasons; Twelve Clubs to be
Almost Entirely Remodeled.
BY HUGH S. FULLERTON.
Never before in the history of base ball have so many prob
lems arisen to complicate the major league season. Even the
brotherhood uprising, the American league invasion, the Fed
eral league assault, failed to smash the major league teams, to
upset the dope, and to make the uncertainty of the season so
great as the world war has done.
, We will ee twelve practically reX
modeled ball clubs in action, and the
nther four, less wounded by loss of
men, have been hit in vital spots. Man
agers have discarded old ideas ome
have discarded practically entire ball
clubs. Some, for financial reasons,
have trimmed down to the essentials
and will experiment with cheaper, and
possibly more sensational, material.
The season of 1918 promises to be
the most interesting in the history of
modern base ball. Probably the brand
of base ball exhibited will not be as
good, from the standpoint of the ex
pert, but there is an even greater
chance that it will be better, from the
standpoint of the spectator, (than , it
has been in a long time. Salaries have
been cut. Players, who have been
too prosperous to pay attention to
their own business have been jarred
by salary cuts and the prospects of
more salary cuts. The golden age of
base ball has passed and this is thrift
vear for certain. The owners finally
have waked to the fact that the pub
lic' doesn't give a darn for stars who
will not hustle, and that the fans
would rather watch a bunch of fight
ing, hard-working young fellows bat
tling to win ihan to see the most per
feet brand of ball turned out by spirit
less and self-satisfied stars.
Another Call Coming.
Besides the situation, as we face it
in early March, there is the strong
probability that the government will
call upon a number of the athletes
during the season. .This adds an in
centive to all clubs to keep hustling.
A club with ten games the lead may
lose two great pitchers in the con
scription, and tumble down to join
the second division teams. Several
clubs will start the season relying
mainly upon men who are in the first
call. This adds to the uncertainty
and to the interest of the major
league races. Last year the only hope
of any National league club was that
the Giants would be caught in a train
wreck. The American league was in
much the same class, only Chicago
and Boston really figured to have a
We find another condition: In
the National league, Cincinnati . and
St. Louis after long periods of bad
ball clubs, seem to have a real chance
to get into the pennant races, and
the Chicago Cubs, having spent a
fortune for players, figure to chal
lenge the Giants' right to the chain
pionship. In the American league,
Boston, after being riddled and al
most destroyed by loss of men to
the army and navy, has rebuilt the
team until it forms a formidable op
ponent to the World's Champion
. White Sox. v
Hard Job for Dopester.
All this is pretty tough on the
poor dopester. It makes his task
. this spring harder than he ever has
known. First, he must figure on re
modeled teams: and second, he must
calculate as to the chances of cer
tain men who are vital ,to the in
terests of teams being called to the
. ' colors. - "'.- 1
Let us suppose cases: Cleveland,
already shot to pieces by the draft
and by volunteering, has managed
to reassemble a team, grouped
around Tris" Speaker, which may up-
. set the calculations of Boston and
Chicago. Yet there is Wamhsgnass

Wambsganss what , chances would
There is the Chicago White Sox.
The pitching staff has been hit hard,
and, although the team remains
practically intact, what if Faber, who
is in the first call, be summoned
during the height of the season?
There L Cincinnati, and the case
of the Reds constitutes a tragedy.
The Reds have waited two genera
tions for a chance at the pennant
They have a team which, for the
first time in many years, promises
to give them a chance to win. Yet
the strcnirth. of that team depends
largely upon two men Toney and
Eller and both men are in the first
list to be called, when the nation
' needs more men. , '
Tate the Chicano Cubs: Weeg
man ha snent lot of money and
has spread a lot of the C Webb Mur
nhy brand' of manure to make and
press agent a team which depends

bought Grover Cleveland Alexander
at a stupendous price---and Alexan

on if the nation needs more men.
Element of Uncertainty.
The fLct is. there is scarcely
tcru in cilher major league that
THERE GO Hi JONES

would be able to hold within two
places of where the present dope
places it if the draft hit them in
vital snots. The . conscription may
make second division clubs out of
teams that figure up at the top, but,
by the same process, if may place
tail-end clubs up near the top. It
may equalize the race after it seems
over, and it adds the zest of uncer
tainty to races that might be figured
as over before they start.
Ihere is yet another angle from
which we must figure: Miller Hug-
gins goes to the New York Yankees;
Jack Hendricks, a tried and success
ful minor leaguer, takes the M
Louis Cardinals; Ed Barrow, a vet
eran with wide experience in base
ball and darned little in the active
playing part of the game of recent
years, takes the strong Boston Red
Sox - his inaugural experience was
two years in Detroit; Rowland, the
busher of the last two seasons.
has won his spurs; Hugo Bezdck
promises to become one of the most
popular, even if least successtul,
managers as leader of the Pirates.
Fielder Tones may even now retire.
Mailings, Mcuraw, Moran and
Mack remain about the only mana
gers who can be called veterans,
There is a new school of manage
ment springing up and each of the
new managers is bringing new theo
ries into the game.
Owners Play Bigger Part.
Besides all that, the element of
ownership is entering more and more
into base ball. No fewer than five
major league clubs are owned by men
who insist upon dominating the man
agement itself. SuQh conditions, of
course, hurt the teams, and we must
figure how this ownership by press
agenting and publicity seeking men
will ancct the playing strength of the
This makes doping the pennant
races this 'season a task of infinite
calculation. We cannot figure upon
the playing strength of the teams
alone. We must figure how they will
be affected by the war, how they have
been affected thus far, how the new
system of management will affect
them and whether or not the owners
will cut in and upset all the dope by
insisting upon "helping manage the
In the ownership problem, we must
figure the Chicago Cubs, the Brooklyn
team, the Boston Americans, the
Philadelphia Nationals and the Pitts
burgh team. Also, there are indica
tions that" Phil Ball of tbe St. Louis
Browns has not yet learned to per
mit his manager to manage the team
He had a lesson last season which
should have shown him that cne man
must have full authority, but on top
of this we find him issuing notices
that Jones must do so ana so and
must enforce discipline. Incidentally,
Ball's attitude last season did more
to prevent Jones from enforcing dis
cinline than anything else.
However, it is not for us to regret
or censure, but to hgure how these
outside influences will affect teams.
We will start the doping this season
by studies of each team and the con
ditions surrounding it. After that we
will delve into the realms of pure
dope, compare the teams, position by
position, and then reduce the position
strenirth of each team to figure which
will apply to the schedule, and figure
out where each team ought to finish.
In the next article we will take
uo the Chicago White Sox first, be
cause it has suttered less loss man
almost anv club in either circuit; and
second, because it is practically intact
and stands on its strength of last
year. There are several things about
the White box tnat tne lans generally
do not know and "which may affect
their strength m the race.

Omaha's campaign for a record-
breaking state bowling tournament
Officials of the state tournament
company, at a .meeting Sunday in the
office of President Dick Grotte, com
pleted their plans for the meet and
will start a "big drive" for entries
Grotte, E. C. Terrell, George Zim
merman, L. M. Holliday, Jack Welch
and "Dad" Huntington were selected
to canvas the retail and wholesale
district for entries.' "Doc" Snead,
John Briggs, Jim Fitzgerald and
George Kenney will solicit entries on
the South Side.
If state bowlers respond as readily
as local tenpin artists, the record
entry of 50 teams, set at Fremont last
year, will be far surpassed. Oma
ha's mark is 40 teams. Twenty-five
teams are expected from the state,
outside of Omaha.
Already the Greater Omaha league
has declared its intention of enter
ing all 10 teams. The first entry re
ceived is that of the "Hummel for
Commissioner" club. The Nebraska
Telephone company and the Douglas
cafe teams are also m. '
Entries Close March 9.
All entries must be received by
Secretary Eidson at the Omaha Na
tional bank not later than midnight,
March 9. The tournament opens
March 16 and concludes March 24. In
order to accommodate the out-state
bowlers the tournament dates were
extended to provide two Saturdays
and two Sundays.
The entry fee is $2 a man for each
event, with an additional assessment
of $1 for each five-man team entered,
as state association dues. The win
ners in each event, including the all
events, will be the state champions
for the insuing year and will be pre
sented with beautiful gold medals.
The publicity bureau of tbe Cham
ber of Commerce is co-operating with
the tournament company to help make
the 1918 tourney the biggest in the
state's history. Bowlers all over the
state are being deluged with circulars
and letters advertising Omaha and the
state meet. '
Interest In Bowling.
The record-breaking entry at the
American bowling congress in Cin
cinnati is pointed to by President
Grotte as an indication of the interest
in the bowling game at the present
"There is no reason why Omaha,
within a short distance of most of
the out-state bowlers, cannot likewise
