Toledo News-Bee, August 25, 1914:
The Pittsburgh club, when it obtains a new player, sends him, along with his contract, a form-card, which he is to fill out and return.
One youngster, duly receiving his card-chart, filled most of it out very satisfactorily, but seemed a bit hazy as to a few questions. Appended is a section of his card:
Batting average, 1913: .322
Batting average to date, 1914: .341
Stolen bases to date: 37
Years in professional ball: Three.
First engagement: I had rather not put that in, because I married a diffrunt [sic] girl and my wife would get sore.
Original position: Paper hanger.
Choo-Choo Coleman would be proud.
