Well, I Connie's at last had a crowd even big-j ger than 12,000 at Shibe park, and j thoy didn't have to put boats under tho players, either. Tho day was made to order for baseball and the reason that 15.000 fans turned out. was because the Athletics had been playing a great game and had once more convinced tho people of the Quaker City that they are rapidly advancing to a condition where they will soon be clamoring for a place in the first lino of the American league trenches, | The Macknien started their uplift j at Cleveland with an oven break and ' then they went to Detroit and got an oven bieak'.
