Chiefs Get $14,200 From Fans
WENATCHEE, Dec. 16—The financially-troubled Wenatchee Chiefs of the Western International Baseball League will be all set to play when the season starts next spring, the club president said Wednesday.
President Bob Tyler said $14,200 had been raised in a drive for $21,500 and that operation of the team was assured. The continuing drive has been going only ten days.
Tyler said he was informing league president Bob Abel of the decision to continue in the league. Loop directors had given the team an ultimatum to get ready for play or drop out.
The Oakland team of the Pacific Coast League, said Tyler, has given assurance will continue a working agreement with Wenatchee on players.
