Pittsburgh Press, December 9, 1911:
President Thomas J. Lynch of the National league will be re-elected at the annual meeting in the Waldorf-Astoria next week. Murphy of Chicago, who was supposed to be against him, has hoisted the white flag and is crying “Lynch forever!” Ebbets of Brooklyn, another insurgent, now declares that Lynch…hasn’t made such a bad president after all.
Garry Herrmann of Cincinnati has insured Lynch’s reelection by the use of methods typical of baseball magnates. He has a copy of a letter in his inside pocket which if made public would cause an explosion in the ranks of organized baseball.
Anyone know what was in the letter? OTOH, Herrmann seems to have said a lot of things that weren’t true, so I’m taking this with about a zillion grains of salt.
