Blank now has on his flinging staff

Irishmen, Malarkey and Toner, not to
mention Southpaw Williams, an Amer

German or two.
Laroy's home is near Bemidji. in
Northern Minnesota, and he has been
pitching in the American Association
ever fince the days of Minnehaha.
Chief was the mainstay of the St. Paul
club through many a stirring cam
paign under Mike Kelly.
In 1913 he was traded or sold to In
dianapolis, and, with a tail-end club,
Laroy had a very bad year.
N.i pitching statistics are available
for Ijirov's work last season, but in
1912 with St. Paul the Indian won 20
games and lost 10 and the Saints fin
ished in sixth position that Fall, too.
Perhaps the change in environment
to the Pacific Coast will help Laroy.
