Pittsburgh Press, August 6, 1914:
The Chippewa Indian baseball team recently lost a game to the American Giants in Chicago and blamed the music of the band for their defeat.
Which recalls the story of the protest filed by a German team in Cincinnati years ago. The Germans were playing the Popular Stars, a team that began with O’Ryan and ended with Grady—and a band was out.
The Irish team won, 12 to 4, and the Germans protested. They claimed the band played “The Wearing of the Green” every time the Irish team got runners on the bases and played “The Marseilles” [sic] when the Germans were likely to score.
Das ist nicht höflich.
