Openly Expresses Pride.
tern-tr-vr. -! March 9. f Special.)
With one exception, the entire squad
of McCredie's 1915 Beavers were out
for training this morning. There were
23 of them in uniform and they rep
Trent thA ntrk Of baseball material.
MrCredia openly expressed his pride
when he viewed 25 men scatter oui
uvfr the park.
Those who are now In camp are:
T'itt-hers Lush. Martinoni. Krause.
Hiccinbotham. Riecer. Evans. Ix-onard,
Callahan. Barnes. Bishop and Willing-
Catchers Fisher, Carlsch. Holman.
lntlelders Derrick. Coltrin, Hall.
Stumpf. Murphy and Davis.
outfielders Speas. Doane, Lober,
Kirchcr and Naughton.
Xauchton Is an inflelder by all the
laws of precedent, but McCredie knows
no precedent and so Naughton has been
transferred to centerfield and made the
head of the battinjr order in all prac
tice frames so far. In the outfield
Naughton has been worthy of his trust.
H. covers lots of ground and has a good
throwing arm. ,
Cavrle-sLle Still Mi Mi nit.
Pitcher Coveleskie. late of the Port
land Northwestern, is the only man
that has failed to arrive. Coveleskie
is not a holdout, he Just has not ap
peared. McCredie has been expecting
lum for the past three or four days
and thinks that every train will bring
the pitcher. His absence Is accounted
for by the fact that he has a long
way to come, although JlcCredie Is be
ginning to think that he had better
arrive, as the training: season is ad
vancing. Bobby Davis grot his first good work
out today. The report come on good
authority that Davis would be on third
when the season opens, and. barring
accidents to himself, will remain there
until the season closes. BobBy is not
needed in other portions of the infield,
as all the holes are filled. Davis was
a little late in petting into camp, but
he Is working well and will be in con
dition within a week or so.
Murphy to Be I.rt Go.
A decision has been reached by Mc
Credie that Murphy, who comes from
the Philadelphia Nationals, will not
do. Murphy has a bad throw to first
nd has allowed a run or two to score
in practice games. Murphy does not
seem to be able to gather the bunts in
and get them over to first base In good
style. His manner of standing up to
the plate is objectionable. Mac be
lieves that if the opposition once
started bunting them down Murphy's
way it would be a lost ball game.
Carlsch. Kircher and Derrick were
the center of interest this morning in
practice, the two former because they
are new to the club and the latter be
cause of his difficulty of getting sat
isfactory negotiations through.
w Men Are Impressive
Carlsch and Kircher are both Im
pressive men. especially the catcher.
He is not as large as some of the new
men.' but his shoulders are especially
Attractive, the breadth of them assur
ing an effective throwing power. Car
lsch handles himself well and he
stands up to the plate and takes an
easy swing at the ball. Today he
confined his workout to catching a
few fast ones from the regular pitchers.
He also worked for a few minutes be
hind the bat to become accustomed to
the stick by degrees.
Kircher is the probable utility man
for the Beavers. He has been playing
this position with the Atlanta club in
the Southern League and has learned
the art in most every position. He
plays the infield as well as the out
field. In practice today Kircher pulled
down several high flies and otherwise
demonstrated his 'worth. He seems
fast on the bases and used good judg
ment in hitting.
Men in l-'air Shape, but They Xeed
Two Weeks of Good Weather.
n.EAPAXTOX. Cal.. March 9. (Spe
cial.) Manager Christian had the Oaks
out in the morning for batting and
sliding practice, but in the afternoon,
after one inning of the regular-yannl-gan
game had been played, it started
raining and practice was called off.
The Oaks need about two weeks of
JL-ood weather and they will be ready
to to. . rieveral pitchers and most of
the regular men are in pretty fair
shape and everybody Is "cussing" the
Mannasch. the Oakland boy trying
for position as catcher, lost a finger
nail, which was torn off by a wild
pitch this afternoon, and it will be at
least two weeks before he is able to
lay again.
Manager Christian has decided to'
take Catchers Klliott and Trice. Pitch
ers Klanitter. Le Claire. Abies and
Christian. Infielders Ness, Manda,
.Meock. Litschi and Lindsay, and Out

Men Out of Position. Make Boots,
but Show Lot of Versatility.
BOYKS SPRINGS. Cal.. 'March 9.
(Special.) Manager Woiverton's new
langled idea of the infield out and the
infield in was duly tried today and had
a tendency to prove that the San Fran
cisco club boasts of quite a versatile
aggregation of players. With Bodie,
Jichaller. Fitzgerald and Mundorff
guarding the inner works for the regu
lars and Tobin. Meloan. Baerwald and
Coy, on the opposite side, then were
two of the infields that held their own
remarkably well. It is true that errors
were made, but plays were executed
that were out of the ordinary.
The infielders, with the possible ex
ception of Downs and Hetlmann, did not
Fhino so brilliantly. Corhan and Jones
lid not even have the opportunity of
grabbing a fly ball, but Bill Leard was
running in circles In left field. It was
a novelty, at any rate, to watch the
bovs out of position and it will un
doubtedly be put down as a routine
training stunt. The game itself was
not much of an exhibition, the regu
lars being swamped under a 12-to-4
