Lined Up by Wolverton Appears Far Better Than That of Year Ago. ONLY EVEN BREAK NEEDED Holdover Catchers Are Retained and Infield and Outfield Strength ened and Only Pitching Corps Is Ko Stronger. BY ROSCOE FAWCETT. Only once in 12 years has San Fran cisco von a Pacific Coast league pen nant, yet it begins to look now as if Harry Wolverton Is to do an Enoch Arden step across, the bay and hand the native sons another surprise pack age. Walter McCredie said the other day horsehide around the .300 mark all year and. as Fitzgerald hit .log. the heals can boast a formidable wrecking crow n the Burdens. Big Biff tvhntlcr probably will be re tained and if Wolverton decides to hold another spare outfielder it will be a grand race between Coy, Mundorff. Baerwald and Tobln. Fltscerald. Meleon. Schnller. Mumiorft and toy are left-handed hitters and for that reaaon Uaerwald may i.et the call for one of the utility Jobs at the final reckon InK. Uaerwald was the second bet bl man in the Texas Leacue In 1914. II batted .311 and stole S3 bases, llaer wald bought his own relcasa last Fall and Berry signed lilm from tha Impe rial Valley League.

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 only pennant. 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. Trio Completes Corps, Couch and Shader, two Union Asso ciation winners, and Colwell, a busher. complets the flinging corps In the infield and outfield, homver, the Seals look much stronger than one year ago. The big weakness of the inner works last season was at first base because Howard was on the bench most of the time and Cartwright and Charles to hold dov.n HarHeilmann. the former Portland vouncster has been purchased from K an option and will be the Seal first baseman. Hellmann Is not extraordinarily fast but he Is a comer and a good extra base clou iter Leard at seconu, ur,'-- I, f" and away ahead of Jerry Downs t .ni hit something like .Zoa iasi vlar but his main strength lies in his snced Put the ex-seaitieiie speeu. , -r-inrta one of a BrnarT BiU oie" 49. sacks In 1914.

L.-tir, vitiE-erald. the young speed merchant of the league, is the sole Regular to retain his outfield laurels. . Wolverton bought Meleon from Venice several wra . V. 1 after grabbing Baerwald. of the Oal veston club, he sprung the faux pas of the Winter by announcing that I Ing Bodie would agsm iruuv. ward of Hetch-Hctchy.

Ward the Federal League has a man willing and ready to finance a team In Gotham. Chief Bender denies that he has been contemplating a Jump back to the Fed eral League. Although Alex Zwllllng. tlia Chicago Fed outfielder, has not received as mucli publicity as Benny Kauff, he Is one of the best outilelders In the outlaw cir cuit. Somo fsns are inclined to the belief that he will outshine Kauff this season. Jim Gilmore, the guiding spirit of the Federal League, traveled 47,0(l miles luring tlie last buscball season. Walter Johnson, writing to an East ern paper from Ills Kansas farm, says that his life In the country has put him in fine physical condition for coming campaigns. This corrects the impres sion that he Indulged In Jumping ex ercises for this result. Connie Mack has added two semi pro twlrlers to the Athletic rookie list. The men are Clco Fisher and Bill Fray, who hall from Newurk, N. J. Tho for mer Is a southpaw. Outfielder Bill Holdnn. released last season to Baltimore for Birdie Crce by the Yankees, will play with Montreal this year.
