Rriinch Rfckfy him l:cen luuky lo entlier $10,000 tot-ether with \vlilcli to .Irrssc Httlnc.s from tin 1 Kansas City Miic.s In (lie fall of 1919. It seemed like a vicious circle. The rich clubs boiiRhl (lie good players, therefore hnd the best tennis and the largest income from attendance. Rickey saw this as early ns 1910, uhEii he assumed the nianntjcment of the Cardinals and occupied tho office of president, us well. B. R. purchased 11 few shnros of stock In the Houston club, chiefly because lie wnnlcd the good will of thnt organization, and out of this and the conditions wlilcli made It dilficult for the. Red Birds to compete with wealthier outfits for material on the open market, grew the vast running system of Ihe St. Louis Nationals. SlriiggliiiB LVinlhials Faced Stern Opppsllion Rickey decided that H would be . impassible lo compete with Ihe more affluent clubs, particularly Ihe New York Giants, for some, years lo come. John J. McGrnw Bine the San Francisco Sculs"$7, r >.000 for Jimmy O'Cotmell, and the Ualtlmore Orioles S12.MO in cash and playere for Jack Upnllcy. Competition from Ihe well-fixed Pittsburgh Pirates and the Cincinnati Reds was a bit too much for the Cardinals, loo. Anolliw coni- petilor shortly was to become aggressive—Ihe Oiicago Cubs, with the William Wriglcy. Jr., millions behind them. In addition to their rivals on the playing field, the Cardinals had American League organizations to contend with in negotiating--for the pick of the smaller leagues. The immensely wealthy brewer. Col. Jacob Ruppcrt, was determined to pill mid keep (he N'ew York Yankees In the thick of Ihe fight. The broken-hearted old Roman, ChnrUw-A. Comlskcy, was attempting to rebuild "th"(T •Chtoai-o club, following tile Black Sox exposure. He went as far as to pay the San Francisco cl'.ib $12fl.00n for Willie Kniiim. The Detroit and Cleveland entries repeatedly raised the an'u when a player appeared ready to graduate. A short while later Philadelphia was to make itself ft-H willi $100,000 to Baltimore for Robert Moses Grove, $50.000 to the Portland Coasters for Mickey Cochrane, a sizable sum to Milwaukee for Al Simmons, and the acquisition of Rube Walterg and others at fancy prices. ' ' . t .. Rickey Decides to Heal Olhers to Prospects As far back as 1310, Rickey believed that if he could «o Out ahd tie up youths aronnd • 18 and . 20 years of age. and patiently coach them for three or four years, some of thnn might equal the $100000 boys. Several years ngo the Cai-dlnnl system developed to the point where scouts visited high schools all over the country, and. while they did not sign lads in these institutions, obtained written promises that (he boys would deal with the St. Louis club first in the event that they elected to follow baseball professionally. Rickey definitely decidetl to go Into Ihe chain store business in a big way in 1921. B. R. sent the veteran scout. Charley Barrett, to trail a shortstop in the Western Association. The S!. Louis club, pinched financially, could not pay more than 81.000 for this particular bit of ivory. Barrctfoffered (hat amount The owner of the club felt that '[ Ihe Cardinals oflcrcd .SI.OOC -another big league club would - pay more, other clubs were eager to take the sliarp-eyed Barrett's recommendation. The Western Association owner negotiated with another club, and obtained $3.000 for his youngster. Rickey's answer to this was the purchase of half interest In the Fort Smith, Ark, club of the same circuit. He made up his mind lo develop lil s own players. * * « B.inner Crop From First St. Louis Farm Among the players who came from that Fort. Smith club were Chic* Hafcy, Taylor Douthil Pepper Martin, Wild Bill Hallahan and Flint R*hm. The Cardinals bought the Syracuse club the following year later transferring the franchise lo Roc'n- coter. The Houston club was taken over. The St. Louts club starts the 1935 season owning 10 or more minor league franchises outright, Includ- ing Rochester, of the Inlfrnnllonal; Columbus, of the American Association; Houston, of the Texas; St. Joseph, of the Western; BloomliiR- ton, 111., of Ihe Throe-Eye; Klmirn, of the New York-Pennsylvania; Sjirinttfli'ld, Mo,, of the Western A.ssoclntloji; Grmisboro, K, o,, of the. Piedmont; und Montgomery, of the Southeastern. These clubs repiv.sf-nt, $l,ri(XI,0(W In pnwrty iilonr- The Cardinals control two complete four-club Class 13 leagues, Ihe Arkansas Stain anil Nebraska ilp, to the fximt- of linvliuj llir right to select two player.s from each club. They have the pick nl the first lour |ilay<>i* of ut lensl seven other ciulis. They control more than :ioo player::. "It cost us money to operate or possibly an old performer Ills facial' make his debut here Wednesday night, against the wild and W0 oly Lon Chaney In the feature match on (he American Legion wrestling some nl our fiiini clubs in the earlier years," asserts Uli-key. "They were nol strong clubs wlir-n we tOOk llll'lll OVI'I-. "We bulli ihein up, JHU, i,, s ,|j t . JWe parks and furnished proper cq'iil|iiiii<iu.

Where most major league owners uiglied ai Rickey's' farm Idea i ccude ago. today practically nil 'of lem have followed suit.
