FOSTER NEW YORK, May 3.—Those of the 'younger generation of ball players who aspire to play first base\ should dig in deep in this year ami : make the best of every opportunity. This season of 1930 Is not very old, o^ly a folft- night in fact, but it has shoWn'a great need for more and better first basemen. The first base problem began to aa- sert itself in spring training. ' Cleveland for instance, was roundly handicapped by not having Fonseca Ih his best form. No more conscientious player lives than Fonseca. Scarlet fever told heavily upon him in the winter. In spite of It he reported iff his team at New Orleans. ;He Was n6t strong enough but he insisted he was.' He has been injured again and it is fortunate that Cleveland has Morgan. He can play first, although he cannot bat as well as Fonseca batted in 1929.. The Boston Americans have two first basemen, Todt and Sweeney. Both can play first as far as catching the hall Is concerned, but Todt, never too fast a runner, Is slowing down. Sweeney does many things well. However, he Is not likely to be the leading first baseman of the American league. Neun Is holding up better for the Boston Nationals than the American league managers thought he would. When Moriarty managed.Detroit Neun played first base one season with such dash and vim that he was nominated to, be the successor of Hal Chase. The next year he fell back into a jog, Brooklyn will have to get a high class first 'baseman sooner of later. Bissonhette threw aWay me«l Of hi* chance to lead the first baseftrtin by not applying himself fo th« itady bf his own weaknesses. No*, he Is getting to the place where he will nbt be excused on the ground of youth. The first base Issue on other teams Is interestingly interrogative. Qehrlg of the Yankees plays; with Strength 1 and abundant animal spirits, yet He let down In 1929 with such rapidity that nis playmates Were aftirtled, Terry has improved With the (Slants. Foxx is hardly on his Way tag. yet for the Athletics. No first baseman can compare with Judge of Washington year in, and year out; He has been counted out more than orlce, but he refuses to take the count. However he has been a long time at it and Wash* ington will need a change. The scouts who put their thumbs down against Suhr of Pittsburgh were too finicky. H"6 may lack some qualities but he lias been a winning ball player from the time he began. < Alexander plays first better for Detroit, but wifl never play it faster. Clancy is a capital kid for the White Sox, yet Shires should be better. Sometimes it seems as if a change would tto Bottomley good. ,He has grinned too long on the west shore of the Mississippi river. There is also Kelly of Cincinnati, the biggest man playing first. He may get too big. In a year or so there will be a mad scramble for first basemen. The young men who would join the major leagues should take notice. WORKS BALL TEAM READY FOR START ,- • <• " The Altoona Works baseball team is all set to open the 1930 season at the Cricket fleld today, the Johnstown, Middle Atlantic league' team arriving at noon today to combat the Pennsy system champions at 3 o'clock. A street parade, .led by the Altoona Works band, was planned for 1.15 o'clock, the band and players .to travel over the principal avenues. At the field a flag raising was scheduled' for 3 o'clock. Johnstown walloped the St. .Francis college team on Thursday scforing 15 runs as three hurlers 1 Were tried out. The Johnnies will likely use Sweeney, Keppler and Galehouse on the peak today. Altoona has Lefty Grove 'ready to start with Moe Roberts and Hen Leasure available for reserve duty. Works. Manager F. G. Grlmshaw Is to toss out the first ball with Louie Porta all set to.make the catch. Mike McNally and Dyke Stevens will do the officiating. Heck Weller and Guy Coffman will be among those present to assist in the opening day program. E.' G. Harf, Pennsy patrolman, will be in charge of the fleld.

Busy Prospect Hill The top of the hill on the Bast Side, known as Prospect hill, is going to be a real baseball center during'the coming season and the city parks and playgrounds commission has alloted certain dates to teams on the field. There'll be baseball every evening during the twilight season and there'll be a game every Saturday. In addition youngsters will have the ball lot during morning and afternoon hours. The Altoona Merchants team, playing independent ball, will use the Held every Tuesday and Wednesday evening. The Whippets have the Held every Tuesday. The Civic-Mercantile league Is assigned' each Thursday while the Fourth Ward gets the lot for a game every Friday. Saturday dates are reserved and teams will be taken care of in the order that they are received. No one team can monopolize the fleld any Saturday date. All teams will share in the grounds. The Whippets are a C-M league entry and as far as possible the team will play all thelp league bookings on the Tuesday date alloted to them at Piwspec-t Hill. Altoona High is using the Held every day since the season opening but the High team will be off the lot before all uther teams are ready for their weekly schedule. liaretuwu High Cuucli Tlu school board at Roaring Spring pleased the athletic fans and students at a meeting this week by voting to go in for athletics in a big way and Roaring Spring High will take its place on the sport map after a few yearn of hit-or-mlss athletics. Homing Spring elected Charley Engles as the coach of athletics starting in September 18aO and his nrst duty will be to organize a football team. A schedule will be framed at once. The Springs were without the grid game for several years. Engles is an all around athletic star and he comes from Western Maryland college, Westminster, Md. He is tutored by Dick Harlow, master coach, and he i» an all around athlete starring in football, basketball and baseball. Engles played twice in Altoona during his football career at Western Maryland being the ulttssy right end on tht Harlow championship teams. He showed here against St. Francis college.

FOSTER (Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, May 3.—One year ago today the • major league knights groomed their fiery chargers and set their lances for the first intersectional jousts of the 1929 baseball season. East invaded west and west came east for the strife. But this year, some\how, this seem different. Some of the knights have found new strength and new steeds, while others appear spent and their chargers .blown. When the leagues swapped ends in 1929, the western National league teams came east and the eastern American league teams went west. This year the order is reversed. There is also something to be said about the standing of the teams. With the big pilgrimage under way this year, many of last year's downs are up and many ups are down. In the National league the teams that are not doing so well as they did a year ago are Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Philadelphia, while New York, Pittsburgh and Brooklyn are higher in percentage the solid gains to date have been made by the Giants and the Pirates. . In the American league, the- St. Louis, New York, Philadelphia and Detroit teams have failed to come up to their marks of a year ago, while there has been Improvement by Washington, Cleveland, Chicago and Boston. The biggest crash Is that of the Yankees, who have skidded all the way from a standing of .600 a year ago to .250 today. The world's champion Athletics are apt to straighten out and move along better, but the team is laboring under an attack of the ailment that Connie Mack most fears—a surplus of confidence. With a straightaway stretch of games on their own grounds, the champions may get over it. WITH THE MAJORS. AMERICAN LEAGUE. Yesterday's Results. Athletics, 9; Detroit, 4. Chicago, 10; New York, 1.
