Rumor hath it that $1,500 is the nice little yearly sum first-class professionals get in the New York Baseball market. To be able to trot round the streets in good clothes during the winter and have plenty of leisure time, and to play ball for the betting rings in the summer may be pleasant sport for some individuals, but it cannot be a very legitimate style of earning a livelihood. However, it is better than touting for gambling-hells or hunting up pigeons to pluck for worse places.
