MWDIE IS EAGER
FOR VICTORY TODAY
Series With Indianapolis Is
Really Struggle Between
Two Rival Leagues.
HIGGINBOTHAM TO PITCH
Beavers Lineup for First of Two
Contests to Be One That Will
Open Season Full Squad
Is Out for FirM Time.
FRESNO. Cal.. March II. (Special.)
What McCredie characterizes as the
most important practice jramea of the
ictson are to be played here tomorrow
and ?undav. when the Portland Beavers
meet the Indianapolis American asso
.lation club. McCredie wants to win
the two games more than any others
ourinz the preliminaries.
Mack's reason is that he wants to
show the Coast League fans that the
Coast i stronger than the American
Association, despite the fact that both
league! have Class AA rating. There
has alwavs been some question as to
the relative strength of the two or
ganizations, and McCredie wishes to
tettle this question beyond a reaon
ahle doubt. , , .
Indianapolis Is a representative club
of the association, having won several
pennants and having finished no lower
than third place. Portland holds the
roast championship and is therefore
qualified to uphold the title for the
HUcglabotham t Pitch.
With the view of getting two vic
tories McCredie has selected the lineup
tuat will open the season and will send
In a holdover pitcher to do the work.
Jligginbotham has been chosen to pitch
tomorrow's game, and Rube Evans will
be held In reserve should Erve find the
going too heavy.
McCredie received a telegram from
Jack Hendricks tonight saying that the
Indians would arrive in Fresno at 7
o clock tomorrow morning. They left
. Lob Ampeles this afternoon and spent
the night on the road. Hendricks has
made reservations at the Hughes Hotel,
the headquarters of the Portland team.
Reservations have been made for 30
persons, there being about 25 ball
players In the party.
Several Deaverlte in Party.
Several members of the Denver West
ern League club are making the trip
with Hendricks. These players and
practically all those released will be
turned over to the Denver team.
Hendricks telegraphed the following
batting order: Rlelly, left field;
Bronkle. third: Kelly, center field;
Metz, first; Butcher, right field; Cran
dall. second: Mitchell, short; Blackburn,
catcher; Merz and Meara, pitchers.
Portland playera are looking forward
to a renewal of acquaintance with Hank
Butcher, a former member of the
Beavers, who is playing right field for
the Indians. Butcher was with the
Beavers one season and nearly ended
the careers of several pitchers by hit
,ting the ball back at them. Butcher
went from Portland to the Denver club.
His hitting at Denver won for him a
place on the Indianapolis club.
Full Squad Is Out.
For the first time since the training
reason opened McCredie had his full
quad out today. Stanley Coveleskie
completed the squad. Coveleskie is
the most prominent man on the train
ing field; he wears a scarlet under
ahirt. This undergarment stands out
vividly against the field of blue and
white presented by the other 2a candi
dates. Coveleskie confined himself to warm
ing up with the catchers, throwing a
fw practice balls and a. jog around the
park. He expects to work into condi

adds another game to the training
Carlson, the new Beaver catcher from I
the Cleveland Americans, is t perma
nent institution with the Portland club.
This specific announcement was made
here today by McCredie. Mack has
been searching for a catcher to relieve
Fisher, since he learned that young
Murray, of San Francisco, would be
unable to play baseball this year, and
he states he has found his man in
Ca rtsch. ' ,
The new catcher is In every way the
man that McCredie wants and in the
few days that he has been working out
has demonstrated ably that he will be
a permanent fixture in the Coast
League this year. What seems to be
bothering McCredie Is the fact tmit
Carisch will be going back to the big
show next year. .
If the 18-player limit is removed
next year, then McCredie will be more
willing to take a good price for his
new man and will not feel that he is
jeopardizing his chances with the 1918
pennant. If the playing limit is still
held at 18 players then Mack will make
a fight to retain Carisch or will not
let him loose until he gets a catcher
equally as good.
Catchers Thought Needed.
"There's no use trying to run a ball
team under an 18-man limit without
two first-class catchers. said Mc
Credie. "and it was for this reason that
I decided to get the best possible ma
terial to assist Uus Fisher. Young
Murray would have made a fine sub
stitute, as he was doing great work in
the Northwestern League. i

LOS ANGKLES, March 12. (Special.)
The Angels hammered Johnson and
Russell hard today and defeated the
White Sox 10 to T. They chased the
former out of the box in the third
frame, with two on and none down, and
made things uncomfortablqfor Kuesell
the rest of the afternoon.
It was a game of hit and run on both
sides. Matt Hynes, who tried to stage
a comeback, lasted one inning and
part of the second. Slim Love relieved
Hynes. and with faultless fielding
would have shut them out. Gait took
the last three frames for Dillon, and
in the last two the Sox made their only
twin hits of the game.
Dillon said he would soon begin to
weed out. but that it was a hard job.
Dutch Hoffman, a good catcher, but a
poor hitter, will be turned loose. Dillon
will keep six pitchers and six infielders.

A'enice Manager Pleased With Show
ing of His Charges Against Sox.
SAN DIEGO, Cal.. March 12. (Special.)
The Venice Tigers did only light work
yesterday at the exposition grounds,
as Hogan thought he would give them
a let-up from hard work because of the
fine showing they made against the
Sox. All the men were out. Ris
berg worked at short and Gleischmajin
was tried in the outfield. He has a
good arm and looked good on a fly ball.

expected for another week. J ,
which squad was to be champion.
The heavyweight affair, between
Frank Busch, of the West Slders, and
Edwin Strowbrldge, of the Washington
High, was the most exciting and pro
duced more applause from the specta
tors than most of the Seattle-Portland
interclub bouts. !Buscn tipped the
beam at 190 pounds, while his adver
sary weighed around 178 pounds.
Both . Football Players.
Both are football players and their
tactics clearly showed that they are
more adapted to football than to
wrestling. Strowbrldge was quicker
and downed his opponent the first time
in 2:48. By the time the second fall
came Busch had recuperated, but
Strowbrldge - won on aggressiveness
after six minutes of sensational work.
The surprise of the day was the de
feat of Clarence Johnson by Fred Horn
ing, of Lincoln. Horning took the first
fall by aggressiveness in 6 minutes
and the second in 5:22.
Wallace McTarnahan, one of last sea
son's mainstays of " the Ilailsplitters,
took two bouts. He won his 135
pound event from Suit, but It required
all three falls to obtain it. By throw
ing Suit in 5:01 in the last bout the
trophy went to Lincoln High.
First Bout Forfeited.
The first bout, between Van Zandt,
of Lincoln, and Russell Vis, of Wash
ington, was forfeited because of over
weight on the part of the Llncolnite.
Undine was scheduled to appear against
Vis, but ho was unable to take part
and Van Zandt was substituted. Both
boys were willing to go on and Vis
took two straight falls.
