The Chicago Base Ball Club has decided to engage for next season an auxiliary team of ten or twelve young players from semi-professional and amateur ranks, put them on salary and keep them in training under the direct supervision of Capt. Anson, with the view of developing base ball talent to supply places in emergencies and increasing the supply of available men in the country. The effect of the rule by which each club can reserve eleven men is to make good unengaged players scarce.
