Cincinnati. A dispatch from the Ohio
fltjr aaya the directors of the Cincin
nati club held a meeting yesterday and
formally turned over Rodgers to Port
land. "
Judge McCredle. owner of the Beav
er, stated last nlsrht thr.t he had not
been notified of Rodger's transfer back
to Portland, but that ire expected to
cet word from the Ohio city today.
. Rodgers' release by Cincinnati
comes as the result of the regulation
reducing the number ef players to 21
men to a teami and in view of the
tmrchase bv Cincinnati of Fisher
from Los Angeles. Rodgers' release

Rodgers formerly played with Port-
' land and was admitted one of the
moat aggressive players in the league
Jle was taken by Cleveland in 1916,
and later on was taken by the Boston
Red ' Sox. which later, last summer
turned him over to Cincinnati.
f Ha was held by Cincinnati until
this sorinar in hopes that his weak
arm would gain strength.
Should the transfer take place. It
means that Vaughn will play-ahort

acquisition means that the Beavers

Fielder Jones, leader or the flopping
St. Louis Americans, Is the first man
ager Who will send a scout out to see
Louis Guisto, Portland's sensational
first baseman, according to informa
tion from St. Louis.
'Before the drafting season opens
either Scout Charley Barrett or Busi
ness Manager Branch Rickey will come
to .the coast to pass the critical eye en
the big fellow. In fact, the St. Louis
club figures that It already has Guisto
under its wing and all that is neces
sary is to turn over the "polpers."
, However, the St. Louis club may flnj

desiring the big fellow and St. Louis

' Pittsburg, Detroit and others who are
, after him.

options on Vaughn and Sothoron, Just
as Cleveland probably has an option
on some of the players It turned over
to Portland. These do not make an op
tlo'u on the club. In fact, the Portland
owners have never given an option on
the club in return for the use of one or
wo players.
Oomiskejr Also Wants Xou.
Much of the trouble of the other
Coast league clubs has been due to this
giving of club options and any number
of ball players have gone away for a
mediocre ball player. Such was the
case with Ed Klepfer of the Vernon
club and Claude Williams of Salt Lake
who went to the Chicago Whfte Sox.
Comiskey is very anxious to get Guisto
but he would hardly be given an op-
tloi on the club in the future, ever
though a deal was made, sending the
big Malian boy to the Windy City.
Anyhow, Scout Barrett of the Browns
has started his tour of the minors and
his first stop will be in the Western
Do you remember little Claude W
Hams and his "floater" that-fooled so
many batters of the Coast league last
year? Well, it is tooling a lot or Dig
league batters. Including some umpires.
Ollie Chill is the latest umpire to be
fooled. He was working back of the
bat iu a recent game and thought Wil
liams was using the emery ball. He
topped the contest while he examined
the pellet, could find no contusions
and bade the man from Salt Lake con
tlnue pitching.
An old timer rises to remark that
the engagement in Portland Just
closed by the Beavers was the most
disastrous since 1896, when a league
was organized in the northwest with
Seattle, Victoria, Tacoma and Portland
in the circuit. The local club was hit
so hard by rain that it went "broke,"
and Glen&lvin, the manager, it is said,
hopped out of town with the receipt
after the first Sunday, leaving the
players stranded. Among them wa
Jack McCarthy, the old Coast leagu
umpire, wHo is now In the cafe busi
ness in California. When Glenalvin
took the run out powder, the league
went flooey. However, baseball is on
a firmer foundation these days, and
while the loss of eight games at home
lu the first month hits the pocketbook
hard, it will not bankrupt the club nor
break up the league.
