N"o Action Possible Unless Class B
League Blows Up Coast Xot
to Curtail Schedule, What- '
ever Is Done in East.
SAN FRANCISCO. June 19. (Spe
cial.) Pacific Coast League baseball
teams may travel up and down the
coast by water next season if present
plans go through. The magnates who
brougrft their ' session to a close today
without disclosing the real Inwardness
of their coming together, have a propo
sition before them from certain of the
steamship companies, and it is possible
they will accept. Kailroad rates are
not altogether satisfying to the club
owners, who are inclined to the belief
that a schedule can be arranged which
will permit water travel.
While a discussion took place with
reference to the Coast League expan
sion, it was agreed that no definite
action could be taken at this time. It
is hinted the Coasters might welcome
Seattle into the fold, but would not care
for other of the Northwestern cities.
This could only be arranged In the
event of the Northwestern League
abandoning its territory some time this
season. Judge McCredie introduced the
subject, but the issue was not pressed
to any conclusion.
Official denial was made by Presi
dent Baum with reference to an- East
ern dispatch in which Ban Johnson is
quoted as saying the minor leagues,
including the Pacific Coast, would cur
tail expenses and reduce its schedule.
"The Coast League has never enter
tained a suggestion of cutting down
its schedule." declared President Baum.
Although conditions are not the best
over the country, the Pacific Coast
League will go ahead with its present
arrangements, so far as this season is
President Baum, Henry Berry and
Jack Cook were appointed on a com
mittee to arrange for reception of
minor league delegates, who will be
here in October for the annual meeting
oi tne jsninor League Association.
