Pittsburgh Press, July 15, 1914:
A dispute over the color of uniforms is said to have a large part in the breaking up of the California State league, which has disbanded.
The freeholders of Modesto got up and declared themselves. The had had an independent team known as the Modesto Reds, which wore red uniforms; they put it in the state league and the uniforms were changed in color. If the State league backer would consent to Modesto’s team wearing red uniforms they would back the game; if not, by heck, they wouldn’t because there wasn’t no goshdanged good to their town in having a team that didn’t wear colors that were distinctly Modesto’s. The other towns wouldn’t agree to the red uniform proposition and the league was buried.
Eh, you can have a league without Modesto. Modesto is not that sweet.
