1902 Chicago White Sox

THE SEASON OF 1902. THE outlook for the new base ball season of 1902 is generally good, although somewhat dubious in spots, owing to the fact that relations between the two major leagues are still somewhat strained while minor league affairs are in tangled shape.

THE AMERICAN LEAGUE: has the best outlook, owing to the fact that it has greatly strengthened its circuit by the substitution of St. Louis for Milwaukee, and has furthermore rounded out its teams with a further infusion of National League star players. Much of the experimental material of the past season has been supplanted by the tried and known veterans, thus making it possible to balance the various teams and assure a close and exciting pennant race. The American League, furthermore, now enjoys the confidence of the public and also occupies the leading place in the base ball world, first, by reason of its all-round strength, and second, by reason of the semi-disorganized and weakened condition of its chief rival.
