Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, APRIL 15, 1918 I i 'I ! n BASEBALL BOXING RACING FSPORH HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Big Leagues Open Tomorrow _._ -*- T Two Games In American Today __ -- - Giants and White Sox Favorites (By Canadian Press.) New York, April 15:-With many players missing, due to voluntary and draft enlistment into war service and startling changes of uniforms since the close of the 1�17 season, the major leagues will open their annual pennant campaign this week under conditions which have not existed at any previous period in the history of the organizations. True, to tradition and bravely . facing the uncertain future, the sixteen clubs composing the National and American leagues begin their 1918, schedules confident that the niche which baseball has hewed for itself in the national life will be found a safe foothold even in the perilous times of the present day. Two Games In American. The American league, weather permitting, will have the honor of marshalling its forces to the first call of "Play Ball." Today the New York club of the junior association will face the Washington club players at the national capital city while the Philadelphia Athletics will oppose Boston on the home diamond of the latter team. The following day the four remaining clubs of the American league and all eight of the National league will swing into action in the various cities of the circuits providing the weather man co-operates with the players and the fans. �th Leagues Busy Tuesday. TJje schedules for Tuesday call for the following opening games: American League-Cleveland vs, Detroit at Cleveland, Chicago vs. St. Louis at Chicago. National league-St. Louis vs. Chicago at St. Louis, Cincinnati vs. Pittsburg at Cincinnati, New York vs. Brooklyn at New York and Philadelphia vs. Boston at Philadelphia. Sox American Favorites. What the outcome of the pennant races in the two leagues will be only the future can disclose. In the American league, the Chicago White Sox, world champions, are conceded to have the edge in playing strength and confidence which comes with the capturing of a championship. One or two of the rival combinations, particularly the New York Americans, have been strengthened as the result of trades and cash purchases and it is likely that the race for first place will be fully up to the standard of past years. Giants in National. In the National league the New York Giants, winners of the 1917 pennant, are still the favorites for ' the flag, but on paper, at least, the team does not appear to be quite as impressive as a year ago. In addition there is certain to be greater opposition on the part of two or three clubs which have built up stronger teams than were available last season. In a general way Cincinnati and St. Louis appear prominently in this particular with at least one other combination in the role of a dark horse. 'PLAY BALL' Washington, April 15. - The American League baseball season was opened here today with Washington playing New York. Walter Johnson was announced in the morning as Washington's probable pitcher. New York was expected to use either Mogridge or Caldwell. Ideal weather prevailed. THE TROUBLES OF THE A. A. A.
