Pittsburgh Press, August 28, 1914:
If the Venice Tigers bring home the bacon next season the Maier ball park will be exempt from taxation, is the conclusion of the board of equalization, which was reached today when Eddie Maier, owner of the park, appeared before the board and requested the exemption. On the other hand, the board said that if the Tigers failed to come home with the pennant next year, the tax would be raised, instead of suspended.
Ouch. Anyway, Venice/Vernon didn’t win the PCL flag until 1919, when they were owned by (of all people) Fatty Arbuckle.
