Milwaukee Journal, June 26, 1914:
The baseball fans of Washington will probably hereafter enjoy a supply of cool drinking water, furnished by spigots throughout the local ball park, thanks to a bill introduced by Representative Howard of Georgia…
Mr. Howard is himself a baseball fan, but has no taste for soda pop. For a time he was able to get drinking water from one hydrant at the Washington ball park, but finally the soft drink interests broke the handle off the faucet.
In other words, the pump didn’t work because the vandals stole the handle.
