Portland Beavers Getting Ready for Opening April 5
Kallio Proud
Of His Single
Off Johnson
Bjr George Bert.
SANTAMARIA. Cal., March 2 el
If Rudy Kallio, the Portland boy,
who la being counted upon by,Man
ager McCredie as one of his regular
pitchers for the 1921 Beavers, should
pitch a no-hit-no-run game without
allowing a single batsman to reach
first base it would rive him as much
.thrill as the event that has already
happened ' In his career and may
never happen again.
The event referred to Is a hit Just a
plain ordinary single. It was made off
the delivery of the great Walter Johnson
of the "Washington Americans during the
1918 season. Some place in his scrap-
book, Rudy has an tne cupping oi u
. Detroit paper regarding the incident.
Kallio is no great hitter, but, believe
us. he is sure proud of that .161 batting
average he hung up in the American
league in 1918. That's -the highest batting
percentage he ever made and ever ex
pects to, but this has nothing to ao witn
what Kallio expects to do this season.
Last spring. Kallio reported to the
Beavers Just a week .before the close of
the training camp season. He was jutst
rounding- Into form, when the club hit
Salt Lake. It was one of the coldest
weeks in the history of the league games
in the Utah metropolis and it set Kallio
back several weeks, in fact he was not
right until he had his back-bone, which
seemed to be pressing on a nerve,
Right now, Kallio is reaay 10 siarc me
season. He expects to have one big sea
son in the Coast league this year.
. . Kallio started his professional career
with the Butte club of the Northwestern
league in 191J. The following season he
played with the Saskatoon club. In 1915,
he was with the El Paso club in the Rio
Grande league and in 1916 joined the
Great Falls club ' of the Northwestern
league and was sold to the San Francisco
club at the end of the season. Pitching
for the Seals against Portland in 1916.
Kallio struck out 13 Beavers, setting up
a league record for that campaign. Kai
llq gets a great kick out of the story
everytime he mentions-It to Manager
McCredie. ' v
He reported to the Seals in 1917 and
waa released to the Des Moines club of
the Western league, being recalled at the
end of the season. He had his best pitch
ing year with the Des Mo'lnes club, win
ning 25 and losing 9 games.
He was turned over to Detroit by San
Francisco and pitching in the majors for
the first time, he won 8 and lost 13
games. In 1919. Jennings did not - use
him in any games, except to replace
some of the regulars. t"
He Joined the Portland club last year,
and despite his bad start finished the
season with nine victories and ten de
feats, winning four of his games in the
last two weeks of the season. Kallio1

with the Columbus club and Calef broth

Rudy is a curve ball pitcher. He has a
great assortment of hooks and usually
has good control.
Beaver Camp Notes
By George Berts
SANTA, MARIA, Cal., March 26.
"Germany" Schaefer and all his
coaching stuff has nothing on Ray,
the great catcher of the Colored
Giants. Before each of the games
with the Beavers, the Giants
"pulled" the shadow baseball stunt
and It was a knockout for the natives.
Each day, Ray would end the work
out by getting hit In the head with
the ball. It provided a lot of amuse
ment for the fans.
: The Modesto (Cal.) battery of Fred
Connel, pitcher, and Henry Johnson,
catcher. Is going to be split. Connel is
likely to be turned over to the Keglna
club of the Western Canada league and
Johnson may be released to either the
Vancouver or Yakima clubs of the Pa
cific International circuit. These two
players are very promising youngsters.
. Jim Poole, the new first Backer of the
Beavers, ought to be good for at least 15
years in professional baseball, according
to Len Goodwin, manager of the colored
Giants. Poole does not waste any move
ments In fielding1 the balla around the
first corner' and he is not flashy, but he
can play the stuff ln's out of the sack.
Although the bright rays of the sun
caused the players to sweat last week,
.they had to be pretty careful about lay
ing round on account of the cold trade
winds. - v-v ; , -
Manager McCredie received a new ship
ment of hickory for the boys to use in
the final week of the season. This will
enable the players to get used to the bats
they expect to use in the opening series.
Bill Essick. manager of the Vernon
club Offered Manager McCredie, Pitcher
Art FTomme and Outfielder Edington for
Wes Klngdon several weeks ago, but as
FTomme intended to quit the game, Mae
did pot take bun up on the deal. King
don Is playing a bang-up game In the
field but Is not hitting well. He has been
using a bat too heavy for him to swing
properly against fast ball pitching.
Art Bourg Is laid up with a pair of
"bangtailed" legs. Bourg complained of
soreness in bis legs and was told to take
things easy, but in one of the games
with the .Giants he extended himself and
is now one of Doc' Meikle's daily visitors.

He has everything that is necessary
in the make-up of a good catcher. He
is a fine target for the pitchers to shoot
at and possesses a wonderful snap
throw,- although he ia just rounding into
good shape. --.'- '
Johnny Bvers, manager of the Chicago
Nationals, who heard considerable of
King's ability as a catcher shortly after
his arrival in Los Angeles a ; fortnight
ago, questioned Manager McCredie about
tne tig catcher when the Beaver leader
conferred with the Cub boss in Pasa
dena. . -i,-.- ! .- ', 1
Mac was only abte to tell Kvers what
the Detroit scouts had written him about
King, but it sounded good to Bvers and
chances are that the Cub scouts will
keep an eye on the big fellow during
the 19Z1 coast league pennant race.
In the training camp games between
the Rooks and the Goofs. King has been
showing up in good form. lie is a little
overweight and as a result Is not taking
any chances of putting himself out of

among followers of sport on both
sides of the Atlantic during the com
ing summer.; -
American amateur professional
players are -; making ready to cross
the broad stretches of the ocean next'
month to take part In the British
open and amateur championships.
and later on England will send rep
resentative golfers to America to
seek laurels once again in the' big
title events on this side of the pond.
Edward Ray, the Briton who lifted
the American open title last summer.
has announced that he will not defend
the title, but it is expected that many
of the foremost British players will tee
off when the toflrney starts July 18,
as a new champion is to be crowned.
As the British open tourney Is set for
June 20 at St, Andrews the best British
and American pros will have time ' to
return to the United States for this
event. ' . ' " '
The invasion of England by the Amer
ican contingent has already been started
by Miss Alexa Stirling, American na
tional women's champion, who sailed re
cently j on the Carmanla to take part
In the British women's title tourney at
Turn berry In Scotland. Miss Stirling
modestly declined to predict any glory
for herself in competition against Eng
land's women players, but she hopes to
lift the British title and later on capture
the French championship.
The contingent of American amateurs
will scarcely be; representative unless
Chick Evans, national amateur cham
pion, changes his mind and accompanies
the team which is to be led abroad by
William C Fownes Jr. of Pittsburg.
Evans stated recently that for business
reasons and because of his health he
would not make the - trip to Europe.
It Is hoped, however, that he will see
his way clear to change his mind before
the team sails. -Francis
Ouimet is another doubtful
member of the team. Ouimet also gives
business as the reason for his detention
on this side of the water, but he also
may change his mind. Bobby Jones of
Atlanta, S. x Davidson Herron,. national
amateur champion In 1919, - and Bob
Gardner, runner-up to Cyril r Tolley in
the British amateur tourney last June,
will make the voyage in May.
Much interest is connected with the
make-up of the professional team which
is to represent this country in the Brit
ish" open tourney over the famous St. An
drews course next June. Joclc Hutchin
son, Hagen, Barnes, Diegel. McNamara,
who is to captain the team, Brady and
half a dozen others may make the trip.
The size of the team to go to St. An
drews will depend largely on the success
of James R. Harnett's campaign for a
popularly subscribed fund to cover the
expense of the trip. Harnett would like
to send 20 American pros to England,
which would entail an outlay of some
130.000. v ' .

When Matchmaker Frank Kendall of
the Milwaukie Boxing commission signed
up Shade and Duffy as his ten-round
main event for the Milwaukie arena next
Wednesday night, he certainly made' a
ten-strike according to the way a ma
jority of boxing fans feel about It.
Slfede battled the rugged Frankie Mur
phy tn days ago and won the verdict.
Shade can give and take with any of the
140-pounders on the Pacific Coast and
like Duffy is out to make a national
reputation in the roped arena.

ets early for next Wednesday night's

for the. 6-round seml-windup. For six
rounds they stood each other off with
wicked rights and lefts, and at the end
of the sixth. Referee Lou tit couldn't de
cide any other way than a draw.
Since then each has been aching
to get another crack at the other and

semi-wind up. , - ' '
vMickie Dempsey, the boy with seven
straight knockouts to his credit, is on the
card again. The cry of "Get a boy who
can give him a battle" has met with the
response that Baby Blue of Sacramento
will; offer the . opposition. The bout - is
down, for six rounds. Dempsey has tum
bled them all over eo far even though in
several instances he was outweighed
in one case 11 pounds. - He doesn't want
anything , "soft" and judging from what
Baby Blue has put up in the past the
colored boxer, sure is a long way from
being "easy pickings."
' That Dempsey has a fighting heart can
be seen in the fact that after he' had
taken a lacing in the. first round even
going so far as to be knocked down he
came back with a rush - in the second
canto and put his tough adversary away.
That's the way he is going to go in
against Blue he says. He wants to prove
to his many admirers that his knockouts
have not been of the "fluke" variety., and
that he is worthy of the reputation be
has worked up. X.

maker Kendall that 2500 seats' are to be

Colored Team
To Play Here
Next Month
By George Bert
The scheduling of the five games

Coast league with the San Francisco
club Tuesday, April 5.
In seasons past; McCredie has al
ways taken advantage of arrangins'
games with the colored teams as it i
the best training possible for an ag
gregation that is in the making. It
aids in developing the inflrld com
bination work and also gives the
players a good chance to line-up on
the cut-off plays. '
In last Sunday's same with the Giants.
Klngdon missed a cut-off play, that camo
near resulting disastrously for the Beav
ers" and Mac immediately "wised him"
up- on it
McCredie was very much elated over
the showing made by his tossers in tlie
first series with the Giants. In thB five
games, they . gathered two victories,
which is a great showing considering
that many of the players are getting
their first professional ex"perience.
-In the five games, they rrabbed off 40
hits, an average of eight hits a gamo.
The players were not facing easy hurj-
Ing. In Rogan and Curry, the. Giants
have two star ripdit handed pitchers and
McNair is a southpaw of no mean ability.
In the game against McNair, the Beav
ers, made but four hits, his peculiar de
livery being- a mystery to the Mackmrn
for It was the first time that they
bumped Into southpaw hurling except In
the few Innings that Zink worked In
one of the camp contents.
The aeoond series with the Giants i
scheduled to begin "Wednesday, March
30 and close Sunday. April 3.

the Giants will begin a tour of the North
