—Wild Bill Donovan Latest
Philadelphia, Dei'. -I!.—Ban John
son said yesterday that Ruppert, Hus
ton, et al., had devilled upon an expen
diture of $425,000 for a grandstand
on Manhattan Island. As the wealthy
New Yorkers would not likely bui'ld a
ball park before they owned a team
to put in it, one hardly can imagine
the Yankees' sale has not gone
t hrou gh.
The new field will have a seating
capacity of 40,G00, or about 3.000
tnore than can be bandied at the Polo
<.■ rounds, now the largest park in the
country, -lust where this handsome
structure will be located is another
angle of the "Yankee mystery." Rup
pert owns several available sites 011 the
island and may select one of them.
Wild Bill Donovan, who is spending
the winter in Philadelphia, stated last
night that he bad not received any
official notice that he had been select
ed as the new manager of the Yankees
when the latter club changed owners.
He said, however, that if the .jo 1!) was
offered to him he would be glad to
take hold and do the best he could to
give the American League a winner in
New York. Donovan said lie had talked
■with Prank Parrell during the latter
part of last season regarding the posi
tion of manager of the Yankees.
He said he had never met either
Colonel Ruppert or T. L. Huston, the
prospective owners of the club, but
said his side of the affair was cared
for by Prank Navin, of the Detroit
club ; and President Lannin, of the Bos
ton Red Sox, who also owns the Provi
dence club, which Donovan won the
International League pennant with
