that, with one more pitcher, the Seals
would be pennant contenders. Indeed,
they will new pitchers or no new
pitchers if Wolverton gets an even
break In the luck.
The squad already lined up by the
new manager. Wolverton. looks far
and away stronger than last year's
team. And the Seals were in first and
second place for a major part of the
1914 campaign. Los Angeles nosed them
out of second place in the last few
weeks. " ' ' ' ' .
It was back In 1909, when the Coast
had Just expanded to six clubs, that
San Francisco garnered its one and
Portlaad Is Seeoad.
Tortland finished second after a hard
struggle. Howard Mundorff was break
ing in with the Seals in those stirring
days, and Ping Bodie was also draw
ing pay from Cal Ewing.
Otherwise, the 1915 squad Is entirely
changed. , .,
Wolverton will have the 1914 hold
over catching crew. Schmidt is one of
tho greatest minor-league catchers li
the business. It Is barely possible that
Berry may have to sell him to some
major-league club this -Spring to sat
isfy him. Clarke Is steady, and Sepul
veda ought to come strong this year, as
he Is young and promising.
Thus far Wolverton has not appre
ciably strengthened the 1914 pitching
crew. The .Seals lost Standrldge to the
Chicago Cubs by draft, and Wolverton
filled this vacancy by purchasing Kel
slgl, of the Topeka club through De
troit. Reislgl is a right-hander and is
no kid. "Portland Bill" James says
Reislgl was with him at Cleveland
back in 1911 or 1912. Last year in the
Western League he won 19 and lost
13 and had an earned-run average of
2.64 per game.

In the infield and outfield, homver,
