Tacoma Times, July 28, 1914:
Tacoma has a new pitcher.
The “Mysterious Pitcher” will warm up today. He will warm up tomorrow also. And he will pitch against Ballard either Thursday or Friday afternoon.
But the man of mystery will wear a mask over his face during every game. He will be escorted from the field in a closed taxicab. There are not more than five persons who know his identity, not even the players having the slightest idea of who he is.
Looks like the “mysterious pitcher” never actually appeared in a game. It turned out to the telegraph operator from the press box.
