LV)- A Washington -New York world scries next October and an era of basebr.ll prosperity Which will soon find stadiums seating at least 100,000 spec, tators in every major league city, were forecasts of John McGraw today on the fifty-third anniversary of his birth. Linking tho financial success of the national pastime 'vith its development in this city, the veteran Giants' pilot asserted that winning learns in New York were necessai v for continued prosperity of tho game. "When interest languishes here, it. soon falls off all over the country," he said. "In the light of my experience in baseball, I can see only bigger and better things, with new and greater stadiums all over the major circuit.. "Some idea of the growth of the game may be found in the fact that in 1890 I could have bought the Pittsburgh Nationals for 135,000. You could not buy the club for any amount now. "When I broke Into New York twenty-five years ago as manager of the Giants, major league baMteJI was a losing venture. The clubs at the top usually made a little money, but at. least five others always lost. Now Its a rare thing for a club to finish with a deficit. Twenty yaara ago you would have been lucky to draw 300 or 400 at an exhibition game in the south. Now at leist, four or five thousand fans turn out. "Behind all this success you will find New York. We took the lead in raising the standard of the personnel. Wre also showed tho way in providing better accommodations for the spectators, rutting Up the first steel and concrete stadium game.

Block faces this spring the task of rebuilding his team in many spots. Both infield and outfield need making over. In the first place, two members of the infield will not be back. Ray Alien was released from his shortstop job and Jake Mesaner Is a bona fide holdout with little prospect of President Clark Siviter coming across with any raise, especially in view of the fact that the salary limit for the team has been cut this year. In the outfield, only Oren Brown will bo back. Block is putting much confidence In Area Denton, recruit from Steve Doyle's home town of East St. Louis for one of the gardening jobs but he has another hole to be filled. Probably one of the biggest problems confronting the Saints -pilot is selection of a catcher. Regarding backstops, George has a sad story to tell. He found a really promising catcher while looking them over last fall. Here was a lad who could catch them, throw them and hit them, all rather well. He was signed and had transportation wired him to come to St. Petersburg when Block received latin that he was unable to make arrangements to get away. It was a real blow for George had depended on him to do most of the catching this season. As a result. Block will probably nave to do some back-stopping himself although he will have a couple of candidates working out today. Thus, Block needs to build himself almost a new team. But his job this year will still be easy compared with that of last season In spite of the words of some of those who alleged that he came nere in 1925, with a "ready-made" ball club. Last year, it is true, he had players whose ability he was confident of. but he did not have a team until weeks of hard work made them into a fair machine one good enough to win the first half of the league and finish well In the second half. This year he has a few veterans, Doyle and Barnes in the infield. P.rownie in the outfield and Hewitt on the mound to rely on. Tiger Shortstop Is Purchased by Boston Red Sox BOSTON.
