Danville Opens 1924 Ball Season OAvncF^HerbCftr- Murphy, of-'"-the Danville baseball" club of the" Piedmont Jjeague. rwiriners of the pennant in 1923, has drafted the ned schedule for the league, and while the league had no': formally acted' on the 1924 playing schedules, the approval of it by Danville, Greensboro and Raleigh, with the other trio of clubs assenting, it Is virtually assured that the schedule herewith presented in its entirety will be the basis on 'which the six tearns will Might it out for the pennant- The season is to be an unbroken one of 123 games, play 1 beginning on Thursday. April 24th and ending on "Wednesday afternoon. September 10th. President Bramham. it is understood has submitted a copv. of the schedule to each of the clubs and has. asked for a vote of approval or disapproval at the earliest practicable date. It wil] be noted that the'series of games ·will consist of. three. ; instead of two, as during: the preceding four years of the Piedmont circuit- The split season or bifurcated schedule has been-abandoned along with the blocks-of-two games. · The Tobacconists or Champions, as they will now be called, -will open the, season in Greensboro on April 24. 25 and 26. Greensboro will play the May. 30the (Memorial Day) double-header in Danville, both in the afternoon, while Danville will oppose tl*e Carol=-Utes in Guilfprd battle-ground vici- iifl£y for the double-header" on Labor 'Da'. just. before' the- season closes. "Greensboro.,, ..will also ; be arrayed a gainst the Champions at Stonewall Jackson park on the morning of July 4th, but IQ the afternoon. Danville will tackle the- Carrolmen on the Greensboro grounds. Every club will have ten Sautrday games, and all will have a look-in on the holiday crowds. No club will play 'more than three games in succession with any other one club, and none will play more than six successive games with the same opponent, either at home or abroad. * . Greensboro by reason of its hub location in the league territory will have the least mileage, 1734. while Danville, the only Virginia city represented and the extreme northern location of the league territory, will have the greatest mileage, 3.186. But that will cut no ice nor cost any dollars, since the mileage is aggregated and tljen divided evenly among the six cities. Possibly the great mileage of the Danville club may have some effect on the physical condition of the players, but it didn't last year. "Elsewhere on this page the full schedule of the league appears. Fans jr.av cllo it out and get an early glimpse of the arrangement and make their plans fo r attending games.- . ^ . ...

Hugging named Fal: as one of tfie players he desired, who. a trade between the Pox' in A Vai:I;f was the big topic in baseball a c-fir back. The Yankee leader is still strong" for Falk, believing he has great possibilities. Despite great natural ability. Falk has fa'iled to come up to expectations as a White Sox. Rumor has it that he has been dissatisfied with his berth for several years. Falk ca^ne to 'the White Sox as a pitcher, direct from a southern college- Because of his ability to hit, he was converted into an outfielder. While Huggins has plentv of outfield material, he would be more than willing' to take 'over Falk. In return. however, he Vjasn't much to offer but cash and the Sox are looking for players. . Knowing: that Falk has jrcat prospects. Frank Chance is siul to Tavor holding him over until he can decide the issue. Chance realizes the weakness of the White Sox hi the outfield and evidently has no intention of letting a likely player, get away from him. \ . . " f- -PHILADELPHIA.
