[Pittsburgh] Gazette Times, July 29, 1911:
The Boston Club today is a joke, and it has been made so by its owner, a man who does not know a ball player from a jack salmon.
Today there is just one player with the Bostons who measures up to National League form, and his name is Sweeney, neither euphonious nor yet a poetic cognomen, yet he can play ball at all stages.
Now, I suppose that bunch of Beanbakers will turn right around and down the Pirates. They will—I do not think.
Holy moly, I think I may have just stumbled onto the earliest known usage of the “not” joke.
