White Sox and Athletics.

Fans Who Have Seen Player
Considered a "Find."
Jimmy Riordan. backstop of the. St.
Mary's College team of Oakland, Cal.,
recently signed by Jimmy Richardson
for Walter McCredio's 1913 Portland
Beavers, is one of the most-sought-after
diamond youngsters in the game.
He turned down chances to play with
the Philadelphia Athletics. Chicago
White Sox, and Montreal of the Inter
national League, to play on the Coast
While McCredie has never seen the
' Californian in action, he is beginning
to list the receiver among the 1913
finds," figuring that If . Connie Mack
had Harry Krause approach Riordan
with a contract, the astute leader of
the former world's champions must
have the utmost confidence in the abil
ity of the boy to make good. "Mac
didn't overbid Mack for services of
the "greatest catching prospect in
California," Richardson signing Rior
dan for less money than Mack offered.
Riordan started playing "regular
ball at the age of 15 years with the
Sacred Heart College team of young
sters, which defeated all comers in
1909. He captained the aggregation,
victories including games against
major leaguers and independent teams
about San Francisco. In 1910 and 1911
he managed and captained the San
Mateo team, and last year caught for
Hanford in the San Joaquin Valley
League. He has remarkable success,
hitting .356 against such pitchers as
"The Beaver recruit Is regarded as
the headiest youngster around here,"
writes Richardson. "Ho takes a nice
swing at the ball and throws accurate
ly. He has never yet been compelled to
exert himself to get base stealers. He
Is 21 years old, weighs 175 pounds, and
is five feet ten Inches tall.
"Al Baum, president of the Coast
League. Is a big booster for Riordan,"
"I don't usually think much of these
youngsters who have not had tryouts
-In league ball, but I can't help but
think that Riordan and Heilman are
two boys who wll upset precedent and
stick with the Beavers from start to
finish," says Walter McCredie.
"If I can develop two good men from
the list. Including Cuningham, Heilman.
Riordan. Courtney and Hynes, I shall be
satisfied. This will make Portland a
'pennant - winning probability right off
Bart Burke, manager of the Fraser
team of the San Francisco City League,
Is another of the many boosters of both
Heilman and Riordan. He writes to
"Harry Heilman is the class of the
league by long odds. He is a rangy
fellow, with a great arm, and hits any
kind of pitching. He is a good base
runner and has a hook slide that gets
him by the ball almost every time.
"Jlmmv Riordan, of St. Mary's, I re
gard as "the best catcher around here.
He Is smart behind the plate, hits fine
and throws well. .Besides, he can fill
in on outfield or infield."
The baseball temper of Portland fans
probably will be tried out Sunday, a
number of players, including Max
meyer, Kallio, Hawarth, and North
western League recruits of 1913, plan
ning to play an exhibition game. Plans
for the affair have not been completed,
the men awaiting the predictions of the
W. W. McCredie and Walter McCredie
started in their annual contract labors
yesterday, practically every Beaver
article of agreement for 1913 being sent
playerwards. The Colt contracts will
he mailed in a day or two, Nick
Williams meeting with President Mc
Credie to discuss salaries, etc.
"We won't have much trouble with
the players this season." optimistically
predicts "Judge" McCredie. "One good
thing about the failure to win a pen
nant is that the men do not demand
everything In the world from the
owner. Had we won the flag in 1912
1 suppose every man would have been
after an Increase In salary."
But Walter McCredie is more pessi
mistic. "Did you ever hear of any one
signing up a bunch of ballplayers with
out trouhle of some kind?" he asks.
Irving Hlgginbotham, the Beaver
hurler. is anxious to sign a contract.
Likewise he Is anxious to get back to
Portland. He writes from Los Angeles
that he failed to collect from the Win
ter League peoplo.
"If we have a team 23 per cent
stronger than the one last year, Port
land will win the 1913 Pacific Coast
League pennant, or at least figure one-two-three
In the race," says Manager
"Had Bill Lindsay been in proper
shape all last season we would have
been In the running: so you see It's not
such a long jump from a losing to a
winning club. If Hagerman. James
and West pitch up to 1912 standards for
men In 1913, and the rest of the team
is no better than last year. Portland
will surely be in the race."
The usual blue and white suits will
be used by the Beavers next year. The
road suits will be of blue, with white
trimmings, with the home uniforms
of white with blue trimmings.
"Uniforms and their trimmings don't
cut much figure with me." comes from
baseball headquarters. "It's the fellow
inside the suit who counts."

HOG AN ASKS RECONSIDERATION
Another Vote on Vernon lYanchise
Is Happy's Plea.
LOS ANGELES. Jan. 6. (Special.)
Refusal of the Coast League directors
to reconsider their votes, by which they
wiped Vernon from the Coast League
map, has not discouraged Jack Doyle,
Eddie Mater and Hap Hogan. They re
fused to accept the verdict and are
going to make another campaign to
influence the directors to reverse them
selves and permit the Tigers to play
at least another season in the. little
neighboring city. Considerable hope is
entertained by the trio that sufficient
pressure can be brought to bear upon
the directors to get them to give Ver
non another chance.
Today letters will be sent to each of
the northern directors, appealing to
them to take another vote and give
Vernon another trial. These letters
will be personal appeals from several
sources to each of the directors who
voted to revoke the Vernon franchise
last October, and arguments and prom
ises of various things calculated to
make Vernon a more attractive an
less-offensive location for the club will
be presented. It is believed that when
the directors consider these appeals
they will grant the request at least for
another year of baseball at Vernon.
EASTERN papers are quoting Fielder
Jones as saying that had Frank
Chance been less susceptible to injuries
he would not now be one of the com
manding figures in baseball. When
the American League people made their
raid on the Nationals they were afraid
to take a chance with a man like the
"Peerless Leader," who might be sent
to the hospital with injuries any day.
Fred A. Purner, writing in the San
Francisco Chronicl6, says that Hogan's
baseball team probably will retain the
name Vernon despite the switch to
Venice or some other Los Angeles
suburb. Another scheme is to play all
games in Los Angeles, making it six
diamond bouts a week.
