- First ' Baseman Blue and Frank Fuller Join the Mackmen at
Crockett Lineup for Regujar-Yannlgan Contest Announced
by Manager McCrediej Athletics Wanted Dorman.
By R. A. Cronin
RQCKETT, Cal., March 15. When the Regulars
play the Yannigans inthe first training camp
game of the season tomorrow, they will have
First Baseman Blue and Shortstop Frank Fuller
on hand to help down the goofs. These
worthies checked in this afternoon on the Over
land limited, having joined forces at Chicago for
the western trip. A little California sunshine
thawed them out after riding three days in the
snow cooled weather of the Middle West and
the Rockies.
Fuller is a blonde with a chin
Evers fashion; a little fellow, . too, but . he has a nice pair of
"shoulders, and they say he can pummel the pill around the orchard,
the first fellow hrank saw was JLJel
him at Detroit in 1916. .
Fuller appear to be signed up for
' the business of ahortstopping for
the Portland club in 1919. and Mc
Credle may make another Peckin
: paugh out of: him. One is tempted
to- say another Hollocher. but Fuller :
" la coming with a lot of . class, ex
perience behind him. while Holly was
fresh from a class C league.
"-Blue, the left handed first base
mam is a medium sised fellow who
. looks, judging from his first work
out, to be fast- on his feet. The
dope on Blue is' that he tea more
promising first baseman than Dres
sen, twho was originally slated to
come from Detroit to Portland, The
former St. Paul Initial Backer will
(have a little om petition from
' -Jump" Walters, but the fact that;
i he has had big minor league experi
L ence. and was. taken by Detroit
would seem to give him the call
over the big Spokane boy. i Both
- Blue - and Fuller are ambidextrous
hitters,, whatever that may mean.
. Also there checked in . today one
. Dick , Cox, late able seaman of
Uncle Sam's navy. Cox .was a
catcher when he was with the Port
land Northwestern league club, but
if George Naisel persists in holding
out.- McCredie is prepared to -shift
-. him to right field and let him dem
onstrate to- the public that he is
'good enough to be a regular Beaver.
Lewi a Tall H trier
Dick looks well. He has been
playing with, the Paeadena club in
th South California Winter league, -and
a fresh chaw of terbacker and a
' shQwer bath will put him in condi-.
tion-"tor the opening game.
- Further additions were Tom Lu
- kanovic. prominent young pitching
7T person from Vancouver, B. C., aged
-18, and Sam Lewis, , who pushes his
pzone .when he stands flat footed.
' Sam brought his 'southern accent
from from Texas and he complained
that the sun was a bit hot this morn
ing. Sam has the ideal build for a '
pitcher, and tlfey say around the
International league that he Is as
fast as a Texas longhorn; fast. In

Arthur stands up to the plate as
nicely as any right hander you ever
laid your eyes on, and he is bound

him hitting fungoes to put strength
into his arms.

catcher. This boy cannot be kept

McCredie beat him to it.
Manager Mac received word from

big boss is banking on. -Fuller and

eACIFIC COAST;league team managers face a, hard task in

hurlers will be given preference over youngsters this year, as every
indication points to a close fight for the flag. i . . ,
Five pitchers on. a class AA team does not appear to be suffi
cient, but under the player limit this is about all a manager can
afford to carry without weakening some other department of hit
