by Cy Kosis
Freelance Sports Reporter At Large

The league's inaugural season is about to get underway. Lots of excitement in all the cities of this fledgling association of ball clubs. There is electricity in the air, and one has to wonder what records will be set that future seasons to compete against. The slate is clean, but we are all about to write upon it in glowing, golden letters.

It is only proper that at this time I trot out the first of what I hope will be annual predictions. Who will win the awards? Which players will be crowned kings of their game? Come close and I will tell thee:
