HOLLOGHER TO PLAY
SHORT FOR BEAVERS
Portland to Get Brother of
Last Year's Brilliant Infield
er, Charlie Hollocher. '
YOUNG PLAYER RATED HIGH
Offers of Big Leagues Turned Down
for Experience in Minors Re
ports Indicate Louis Hollocher
Is Player of Ability.
BT JAMES J. RICHARDSON. X
Hollocher will play short for the
Portland team next season.
Such waa the startling' announcement
made by Judge McCredie yesterday.
But we must not confuse the name of
Charlie Hollocher, property of the Chi
cago Cubs, with that of his brother,
Louis Milton Hollocher, whom Charlie
signed up for the Portland Pacific
Coast International League team.
The glad news was received in a let
ter yesterday from Charlie Hollocher,
who shortpatched for the Beavers last
season in such brilliant style that
Charlie Weeghman. who dishes out the
monthly stipend to the Chicago Na-
Ltlonal League players, decided he would
purchase Hollocher for the Cubs infield.
Louis Milton Hollocher is 18 years of
age, taller and much heavier than
brother Cha.les, all of which speaks
well for the latest candidate for Port
land's ahortpatching position. From
the reports Charlie Hollocher received
last season while playing with the Bea
vers. Judge McCredie is very enthusi
astic about the ycfiing man's ability to
make a regular position on the Port
According to Information from
friends of Judge McCredie's, who have
watched young Hollocher in action, he
Is a better player than Charlie was
at 1 years of age. Louis or Milton,
whichever "handle" the youngest mem
ber of the Hollocner family elects to
sign his salary check with, is rated
around the sandlots of St- Louis as
being a wonderful prospect and has
been besieged with offers to step right
into the majors, but, on the advice of
Charlie, he consented to climb the lad
der of fame by starting in with the
Hollocher is a right-hand hitter. Ac
cording to Charlie, all that the young
ster needs to make good is a little
experience. Charlie wrote Judge Mc
Credie that he preferred to have the j
youngster start in with Portland rathe
than go to a big league club and
then be farmed out to any old leagu
in the country.
If young Hollocher comes through
only half as successfully as did Charlie,
Portland may send another shortstop
to the "big show" to share honors
with Bancroft, Peckinpaugh, Ward, Ol
son and C. Hollocher.
Judge McCredie wrote Billy Spea
yesterday asking the former Portland
outfielder if he is a free agent, ana
incidentally asked Billy if he knew of
any promising talent in his section or
the country that wanted to play in
the Pacific Coast International League
Speas played with Muskegon in the
Central League last season ana nit in
the clean-up position. There were few
players who were more popular with
local fans, and if Billy has his eye
back again he can give somebody
stiff argument for one of the regular
positions in the outfield. Speas would
make an ideal utility man for the Port

Credie drew in the P. C. I. L. lottery at
Seattle, will not play ball with either

fleet-footed outfielder they must turn
