Oettlnic down to Moran, I want to say this
much for Frank, lie Is ono of tho best of

out before, he's not a clover boxeri still, he's
Ulrlyiast, and ns Rnmo a man as oicr pulled

LITTLE EXPECTED OF THE CLEVELAND CLUB
DURING THE COMING BASEBALL CAMPAIGN
Lee. Fohl May Develop
Good Team From
Young Material In
side of Two Years
By CIIANDLEK D. KICHTER
ItTTLR Is oxpected of Clovcland In tho
I American Lcaguo rnco this season, and
tho fans will not bo disappointed It tho In
dians finish at tho bottom of tho ladder,
but they wilt bo surprised prcatly If tho
IndlanB climb ns hlsh as fifth place. On
form, tho Indians have not a chance to
finish so high, but don't bo surprised If tho
team of youngsters Leo Kohl Is collecting
como with a rush toward tho end of tho
It Is reasonably certnln that tho Indians
cannot bo as bad as they wore In 1915,
and thero is every prospect of Fold de
veloping a splendid young team within
two years with tho material ho has at
hand. Thero will be a few veterans In
tho llno-up this season who will havo to
be displaced In another year, but for tho
present tholr presence on tho team Is
necessary to tho youngsters.
Both tho Infield and outfield of every
team which Is built with youngsters needs
nn old head to coach and steady tho In-
experienced youths. Fold realizes this,
and will allow Terry Turner, who Is serv
ing his 14th year with tho Indians, to
play regularly at second, with Jack
Qrancy In left field.
Really a Youngster
draney Is a youngster In years, but Is
old to tho Cleveland fan" and Is going
back. When ho broko Into tho lcaguo
Graney was extremely fast nnd boosted
his average by beating out Infield hits, but
with his legs going back, tho llttlo left
floldor's hitting has fallen off. Ho also
has grown slow on tho basos. Last season
ho stolo but 12 bases and was thrown
out tlmo and 'again on tho bases on closo
decisions which ho would havo beaten a
fow years ago.
Chick Gandll will help In tho coaching
of tho youngsters If ho enters Into the
system with tho proper Bplrlt, nnd It Is
llkoly Tumor and Graney will both bo re
placed with youngsters after tho season Is
about hnlf over. Another valuable addi
tion to tho Indians In tho building up proc
ess Is Ivan Howard, recently purchased
from tho Browns.
Howard Is a veteran, and a mighty
smart ball player. It la surprising that
ho adorned tho bench In St. Louis so
long with players like Austin and tho
many first basemen tried by tho Browns
holding regular positions. He can hltny
kind of pitching hard; Is a clover, though
not fast, baso runner, flolds awkwardly

ST. I'ETCllSBUno, Fla., March 8.
When 1'ntrlck J. Moran's hopefuls begnn
limping their weary way toward Coffeo
1'ot Park this morning they resembled
moro n band of first trench hospital candi
dates than a bunch of light-hearted ath
letes preparing for tho summer drive Into
tho National Lcaguo ranks.
Roro nrms, Btirt legs nnd a general bind
ing ot tho muscles resulted from tho first
tloublo workout which took plate yester

tholr many, though not serious, ailments,
the Phillies laboriously wedged their way
Into uniforms and began to gently toss tho
ball around the lot In tho warm sunshine.
Tho populaco of tho Sunshine City wns

most baseball rabid, having In their midst
a cotps of champions Instead ot tho pre

these facts It was not unexpected that

to the players whom they know from last
Tho work this morning wns really
lighter than tho Inltlnl trials of yes

present sore condition that It was better
that tho players work the stiffness out
gradually, rather than take tho chance
of developing permanent Injury to an
arm or a "Charley Horse." Bill Klllclcr
and Al Dcmarce, who did not arrive in
tlmo for yesterduy's work, were on the
field this morning getting their prelimi
nary warming up.
Whllo Klllefer was a trlfio backward In
making nny definite statement about tho
condition ot IiIb arm, It was easy to seo
that ho was extremely hopoful. Moran
stated that ho believed "KIII'" arm would
come around all right and that ho would
be ablo to start tho season In Just as good
shapo ob ever.
The veteran pitchers, Alexander, JIayer,
Bender, Dcmarce, McQuillan and Chal

ing tho balls back from the outllcd, whenco
they had been whacked In batting prac
tlco. This retrieving work, they consid
ered, was sufficient, and Mornn appeared
to agreo with them.
All of the players seem to bo about
