LEWISTON, Idaho, April 1—Uniform troubles are dogging Laurel Harney, manager of the Victoria Athletics of the Western International Baseball League, who arrived here Saturday with 20 players to set up a spring training camp.
Harney found the most careful plans of a baseball manager can go astray.
He had arranged to have a complete set of new uniforms ready when his team arrived. A checkup with the local supply house disclosed the same old story—back orders too many and lack of materials. Harney is unhappy but hopes the unies will arrive in time to open the season in April.
Harney brought a starting squad of four outfielders, seven pitchers and three catchers including himself. He plans to work behind the plate in relief roles during the season.
