Young, president of the National league and American association, In speaking about the outlook for baseball during the coming season, said: "A very encouraging feature for the coming season is the large number of young and promising players already signed by the mindr clubs. There will be nearly twice the number of organizations doing business under ithe national agreement this year than there were last, and the outlook was never more, encouraging; for. the national pastime. Many of the other outdoor sports, such as horse racing and boxing, have suffered in public opinion, but baseball stands out as prominently as ever, and instead in the game diminishing it is becoming more and more as the years roll around. There popular will be a number of surprises In the various clubs this season, for some of the men who played their best ball last year may not come up to the record of some of those who were less In the past.
