Most of the Independents are new men In the TwiUg-ht league and showed the lack of practice and experience. Manager Johnson pitched his own gam and worked hard but the support given him was not of a winning variety. Only his outfield may be expected from this as "Speedy" in "the center gathered in three hard ones and participated in a double with Callahan that brought forth, prolonged cheers. The score: cheers.

The one thousand percent Rexalls and Alagaa are scheduled to meet this afternoon at 6 p. m. in what promises to be the hardest game of the season. It is possible that the Rexalls will be weakened by the absence of some ot their men from the city but they will have out a strong- line-up at this and promise to make the syrup smashers hustle to retain that one thousand per cent. Harold Bonifay or Avery will probably do the twirling for the Alagaa while C. Bonifay will work for the medical men. Chubby Wells and Bert Coleman will do the receiving and thier work will be watch ed .with a great deal of interest as catchers in the league. '- The game will not be called until six in order to give those attending the opening of the new ball park time to witness both games if they so desire. There will be no gam Saturday but the no names and John Whites will play Monday evening.

Through the enterprise, foresight and progressive spirit of the promoters of the Pensacola Baseball Association, Messrs. C, F. Schad, John G. Oliver and Ed. W. Peake, Pensacola can now boast of one of the most modern baseball parks in the country- north or south. i . : As a matter of fact, there Is no baseball plant south of the Ohio river,, that surpnsses Pensacola's new park in its perfection of appointments for the comfort and convenience of patrons of the national game. While Pittsburg's Forbes' Field, Detroit's Bennett's Park and New York's Polo grounds, are all admittedly more elaborate in their; grandstand accommodations, none of these great nation-all.;" known Mecca s of the Fan are modeled or constructed, in any detail, on more modern lines than this new plant of the Pensacola Baseball Association. Every feature- of this new resort for Pc-nsacola's Fandom, Including the diamond, the outfield, the players' and prtss accommodations, the facilities for the entrance to and exit from the part the automobile parking grounds, the grandstand comforts, the toilet and lavatory facilities, eta, are modeled upon lines combining: the up-to-date icatures of the entire country's most modern baseball parks. Indeed, In the terse, expressive vernacular of the Fan, take it from me. It's as peachy a peach of a ball park as the "dippiest" Fan ever dreamed or. Arcl it's roing to put Pensacola on the baseball map; and, before the close of the 1912 season, in the race for the Tag." in on of the minor. If not the rnpjor, southern leagues. The park is located, at the southwest comer of G and Gregory streets jiust one block south of St. John's cemetery. It embraces one of the large city blocks ot the Maxent track, and is surrounded by a twelve-foot close boarded picket fence. A Fast Infield. The diamond is of regulation dimension, and has been pronounced by several experts who have visited the city since its completion, as fast an infield as is possible to be made. iMore than tight hundred double team loads of clay, thoroughly pulverized and mixed in proper proportion with sand, .were required in its construction. With the pitcher's box as the apex, It is oval in shape, like an inverted saucer, and will shed the water from any ordinary rainfall to the Bermuda grass sodded base lines, as rapidly as it falls, and but few games scheduled will have to "be abandoned on account of rain or wet grounds. The regulation distance from the home plate, along the foul line to left Meld fence, is 235 feet; the same distance from the home plate to right field fence. The distance from the home plate, along the foul line to the left fieid fence on the new Pensacola grounds. Is 2S0 feet; and to right field fence, 2S4 fret. ; The outfield, while not yet In F "Don't ; guessl Try ' Stud !
