it rapidly becoming a fad in bin
league circle but only a few club
are in a position to adopt it.
Sure of Position.
The one outfielder wbo is sure to
play regularly is Mcllenry, a right
handed bitter. He will bold down
leit field. The center garden prob
ably will be shared by the vcterai
Leslie Mann and Clarence Mueller.
The latter bat from the left side
of the plate. Me is a mere kid, pick
ed up by Rickey in St. Louis. He
Rives evidence of becoming a real
star. Jimmy Smith, - left-handed
swatter, and Del Gainor, the one
time Ticer will take care of rieht.
In addition to these Rickey has
Scliultz and Heathcote.
Jack Fournier. the liard-bitting
Frenchman, is destined to first base
for another year. Gainor can sub
for Jack, if necessary. Second, of
course, will be looked after by the
famous Roger Hornsby, Johnny
l.avan will be at short aud Milton
Stock at third. This is the same
inner defense used last season and
in view of these men having con
tributed to the remarkable drive of
the Cardinals during the latter half
of the race one must admit they are
Some of the Cards have an idea
that their pitching strength will not
decide the race, but that everything
depends upon the catching, or to be
more exact, on Eddie Ainsmith. The
lad who caught Walter Johnson for
many years is looked upon as a real
find and if he takes care of himself
he is going to do most of the catch
ing. When in condition he is a (val
uable man. If Ainsmith does not at
tend to business, the team still has
Vernon demons, who himself is no
lubber brain back of the plate.
The team has 10 experienced hurl
ers. but a couple may not be re
tained. Doak,- Haines and Pfeffer
will do the heavy work unless the
unexpected happens. Pfeffer has
been doing a lot of heavy toil down
here and is confident he will prove
stronger than when he was with
Brooklyn. Doak also thinks he will
be better than, last season and that
means he w ill win a lot of games. "
In addition to the above three, the
team possesses Bailey and Sherdell,
left banders, and Pertica Walker,
North, Goodwin and Riviere. This
list docs not include a couple of new
men who look promising. Bailey
came back to. the majors after a
10-year absence and has an excellent
chance to stick. Up to now Sherdell
could not do much except against
the Pirates, but Rickey believes he
is about due to become a regular.
Goodwin has returned after a year
at Houston -and he thinks he is
a greatly improved artist. He hurls
a spitter." -

Snedecor, Wilder and Gislason
Join Buffalo Herd at Victoria
Victoria. Tex.. March 17. (Sne
cial.) Ten day's of training has
brought the Omaha Buffaloes out
wonderfully. Aided by the south
land's salubrious climate and abet
ted by scorching sun every day, the
athletes have bren put through two
stiff sessions of practice each day.
The players are rapidly rounding
into shape, and Manager Barney
Burch is more than pleased with
everything in general, according to
his own statements.
Pete Snedccor, first baseman;
Wilder, catcher, and Garrie Gislas
son, second baseman, joined the
squad during the last week, and in
their first few days out looked
mighty good. Okrie has joined the
squad, and Lee, Kopp and Peter
son are the only ones who are miss-iiiir.
In the various encounters with the
regulars, the yannigans have been
able to hold their own pretty well.
Everv mcetmsr of these two team
is hard fought and productive of
On Injured List.
Treon had the misfortune to sprain
his ankle in a practice game and
has been hobbling about on his
crutches. Newkirk has a blister on
his foot and cannot don a spiked
shoe while Walters sustained an in
jured foot when some one stepped
en it during the San Antonio-Oma
ha series. Ihese injuries are heal
ing rapidly, however. Buff, the re
cruit catcher, had a split finger, but
has been catching every day.
"Snioe" Boddy. "Mutt" Wilson,
Treon, Wiginton, Jelsma, Coffindof-
fer, Drugmand, Smith, Newkirk and
Burch, have started cutting loose
as their pitching arms are becom
ing thoroughly loosened up. All of
them are showing a world of stuff
and Manager Burch admits that it
is coins: to be a hard proposition
for him to weed out the hurlers.
To Play Houston.
This afternoon the Buffaloes
will play the Victoria baseball team
and Saturday Manager Burch will
divide his squad and go to Houston
for a two-game series with the
Houston (Texas league) Buffaloes.
Sunday afternoon the yannigans
will play the Victoria baseball club
at Rio Vista park in this city. The
Victoria1 club is conceded to be the
fastests amateur baseball team in
this section of the state.
