Opening of the. Eastera League Base
EVERY CITY IS CONFIDENT
Aa Then Are So Many New Players la tho

Formed Until Some Playing

Today will witness the opening: of the
Eastern league season. Kvery "fan"
In the circuit Is eagerly awaiting the
outcome of the first day's hostilities,
that he may form an estimate of his
There Is not a city In the league but
what has a lurking idea that its team
Is going to win the pennant. One
village Is mt saying a word. That vil
lage Is Scranton. It has a manager
whose name Is a synonym for suc
cess. It has a team that this successful
manager is perfectly satisfied with,
and one which he Is willing to
risk his enviable reputation on.
This outlit to be enough to give the
local crunks heart for the fray.
Wilkes-Barre claims to be able to
whip any team in the country, condi
tioned that It wears a Scranton uni
form. It claims that It can beat not
only Scranton's team this year but
every other team in the league. Syra
cuse which sent Its address to the pen
nant manufacturer, before the snow
was fairly off the ground Is not as
boastful now owing to a few reverses
on the trial trip. Buffalo and Toronto
have good teams and are making all
kinds of claims. Providence, Spring
field and Rochester are favorites with
themselves and are also generully con
ceded by disinterested parties to he
the most eligible for pennant honors.
The fact that there are so many new
men In the league and that few of the
teams are constituted as they were lust
year makes an estimate the merest
matter of conjecture.
Scranton opens at Sprlngrii'ld.Wllkes
Harre at Providence, Buffalo at Roch
ester and Toronto at Syracuse. Kelley
will umpire at Providence, Doescher at
Springfield, Gaffney at Rochester and
Swnrtwood and Linden at Syracuse.
The Scranton team left at noon yes
terday and were booked to arrive in
Springfield at 11 p. m. Three games
will be played In Springfield, three In
Providence, and then the team returns
home for six ' games with the same
The sporting writer of The Tribune
accompanies the team on Us trip, and
will keep its readers Informed not only
on the results of the games, but on the
condition and showing of the players
and work of the team as a whole.
Resident of the Eastern League Issues
Rules to Umpires.
Syracuse, N. Y., April SO. President
P. T. Powers met the Kustern league

today. He issued the following rules
governing their work during the sea
son: Do not stop at the same hotel with

He perfectly fearless In doing Just
exactly what you believe to be right.
In regard to the rule of a ball strik
ing a batter who hits at It. It Is left to
the discretion of the umpire to rrlve the
man his base, unless he intentionally
permits himself to be hit.
Include the Following Well-Known Gentlemen:
JOHN COLLINS, LOUIS ALLEN, B. T.
STRICTLY ONE PRICE, AND THAT THE
la regard fV coaching, the. umpire
may. allow two rm-n on the line If there
are no objections raised, and a man Is
on bases. If the opposing teams object.,
but one coacher can be left on the line.
If a batter strikes out of his turn, and
two men are out, the side is out.
For tomorrow's games he assigned
Kelley to Providence, Doescher to
Springfield, Gaffney to Rochester and
Swarthwood and Linden to Syracuse.
Speaking of this season's prospects.
President Powers said that the indica
tions were that every team in the
league would make money. If any of
them get tired and ready to drop out,
he could find purchasers for tnem.
President Powers will attend the
opening game at Rochester tomorrow.
