ARMORY HOTEL JACK FROST, Prop. State St,'Next Door to Armory Theatre, Binghamton the baseball grounds and eliminate the western field. This would effect a ma­ terial improvement In .the new dia­ mond a s it would allow for a larger and better outfield. This will probably not be done be­ fore the middle of the summer, but the organizers of the league are figur­ ing on every possible contingency that may work upon the future of the re­ vived combination. Another thing that they polnLout is that ,tp, many games, in a city the size of Endicott is not advisable because of the attendance, which necessarily would be divided. WhUe the league would be run a s a n -amateur organization and purely as a sporting proposition, the financial end must\ be seriously considered for a n enterprise of that size must have a heavy expense account Binghamton has only one good location for City League games, the State Hospital grounds, and there 4s much objection to that place as no collection is allow­ ed. If more teams are admitted to the circuit the ball grounds in the rear of the tanneries may have to be press­ ed into service. At the next meeting representatives from the Endicott Ath­ letic Association, the I. T. R. from En­ dicott, the New Scout factory from Johnson City and the Dunn-McCarthy factor?, the Warriors Club and the State Hospital from Binghamton will be present tcj organize the league and draft a schedule. The association will be represented by P. V. Parton, base­ ball manager and Art Smith will care for the interests of the I. T. R. team. The association has been getting in a workout each evening this week and indications are that a clever team will be developed. Many men have not yet reported because of the weather, but about 25 have been a t the park several nights. Smith Is working out his crew lightly and skirmishing for new men to replace those who have quit the game, or think they have.
