more, he bad scattered In the outfield

SEALS TAKEN" OS 6-MILE HIKE
Wolverton to Switch Outfield and
Infield In Practice Today.
BOTES SPRrNGS, Cal., March 8.
(Suecial. ) The physical condition of
the Seals lias ceased to worry Wolver
ton. He says that if tho pitchers were
a little further advanced in their work
the Seals would be ready for the open
ing of the pennant race tomorrow. The
fact is the whole outfit is in such
shape that tho ball park was neglected
and deserted today, save by two or
three Seals. Instead. Wolverton led the
squad over the hills for a six-mile hike.
That it was strenuous was indicated
by the way the boys limped back into
Wolverton is going to inaugurate a
new training idea tomorrow. Hla Idea,
briefly, is to switch the inflclders to
the outfield and vice-versa in the game
scheduled between the regulars and ir
regulars. Wolverton does not plan a
diamond hippodrome, but rather some
healthful exercise that will come in
liHiidy when the championship season
eomn er.ces. lie figures that infielders
have many occasions to get under high
flies and a berth in the outfield would
give them some useful practice. The
same holds good for the outfielders.
They get chances on many grounders.
and if they get the old eye trained to
pick up hot ones it may develop at
some later date in cutting off an im
portant run at the plate.
OAK VAXXIGAXS TAKE GAME
Unconditional Release Is Handed to

PLEASANTON. Cal.. March S. tSpe
ciaL) Boss Christian sent . the regu
lars and yannigans over the regulation
route today. The yans won their first
game. 3 to 1. The pitchers are putting
something on the ball now and hits
were pretty scarce.
Boyd is beginning to cut loose and
looks like a great pitcher. He is a
spit-ball artist and seems assured of a
position on the Oaks' 1913 pitching
Manager Christian is all smiles over
the showing made by the Oaks Sunday
against the White Sox. "Just wait un
til that bunch get their eyes on the
ball, ten watch them go," is about all
you can gfit out of him. and he sure
has the whole squad pulling together.
Chief Harry Sampson, the Indian
pitcher, received his unconditional re
lease this morning. The Chief was one
of the most highly recommended pitch
ers that ever tried out with a Coast
League club, but his eyesight was bad
and he needs more experience before
breaking into class AA baseball.
Swimming Events to Be at Pair.
Word has been received in Portland
that the Amateur Athletic Union Indoor
and outdoor swimming championships
will be held at the Panama-Pacific Ex
position. Portland made an effort to
obtain them and a report had it that
they had been awarded to iew Tork.

Takes Well Bishop on Mound
Is Cast for Big: league.
PORTLAND TRAINING CAMP. Fres
no. Cal., March- 8. (Special.) When it
comes to novel Ideas In Spring train
ing. Walt McCredic has all Coast
League managers up against the fence.
First he decided that there would be
but one training period each day, next
he decided that ballplayers should only
eat twice and then that a walk of six
miles to and from the hall park was
the right amount of exercise.
Hl latest Innovation is wrestling as
a means of getting his men in condi
tion for the battle of the season.
McCredie started this off himself
and as all great things, it was discov
ered bv accident. Mack had on a brand
now baseball suit. Hlgginbotham was
romping about the park like a young
recruit. All at once he decided to
muss Mack up considerably. An at
tack was made. McCredie refused to
go. declaring that he was out of con
dition. Erve pushed the question, however,
and was vastly encouraged by other
players urging him to put a little stiff
ness in Mack's muscles.
Mat Introduced In Tralnln.
Higginbotham continued his aggres
sive attitude and Mack clinched with
him. It was a mighty tussle. Higgin
botham cot the better of the match
while the two were on their feet, but
when they went to the mat. McCredie
secured a half-Nelson and put Erve's
shoulders to the ground.
They went at it for a second fall
but McCredio was winded and decided
to postpone the bout until he was in
Such good exercise did the wrestling
match prove that McCredie is now en
couraging his men to participate In the
sport. Every day some of the boys
take a chance at the wrestling game.
There is no lack of participants. A
mere mention that a wrestling bout
would be enjoyable and a match is on
the next minute.
ninbop C'aat for 111 I.eaernr.
H. C. Bishop, the University of Kan
sas football star, who is now In training-
camp as one of McCredie's pitching
staff is due in course of time to make
his bow in the big league, according to
Bishop is above medium height, of
square build and adheres strictly to
the laws of physical culture. On the
ball' field, he is strictly business and
puts in his time working into condi
tion. Bishop is going about it In a
leisurely manner but is doing a good
Bishop has been in professional base
ball only one year, but this one year
was a period of Inactivity. Directly
after graduating from the University
of Kansas, he was signed Dy tne
Cleveland Americans and passed the
1914 season with this club. He was
started in several games but owing to
regular pitchers having a good start
and going well was not allowed to
pitch a sufficient number of games
to break Into the record book.
Bishop was an active man in college
sport, where he won a reputation on
the gridiron. This was not his only
line of sport as he went in for track,
basketball and baseball. In the former
he worked in the sprints and was a
point winner for his college. In basket
ball he also occupied a prominent po
Fisher Haa Finger Injured.
Bishop was chosen regular pitcher
in his freshman year and worked regu
larly on the varsity nine during nis
last two years in college.
His delivery Is deliberate, aitnougn
not slow, and he holds men close to
first base. Good control and a change
of pace seems to be his strong hold.
As yet, he has not displayed great.
Fisher Is the first ot tne jseavers io
suffer a bad finger. While running
bases. Fisher was struck with a batted
ball, spraining his thumb. Yesterday
he was catching Leonard, who cut
loose with a fast one, taking Fisher
squarely on the injured thumb.
So far, the Beavers have been for
tunate in their Spring training work.
No sprained ankles or broken fingers
have developed as yet. Fisher is not
in bad condition and his injury will
not keep him out of the coming prac
tice games. The injury rather impairs
his grip on a bat, however.
