BASEBALL.



SEASON OF 1902.



The rivalry of the two leading baseball
organizations of the country the National
league and the American league continued
during the season of 1902, with the result
that while some of the owners may have
lost money the public enjoyed good sport
and the players large salaries. In the cities
having strong teams the attendance was
unusually large, proving that baseball is
still the national game. In the territory
fornrcrly occupied by the Western league
there were two rival organizations the
American association and the Western
league.
