Anti-trust Exemption Newsbeat

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 1-28-2016

Washington Times, January 28, 1916:

Those Baltimore Federal League stockholders mean to go to the limit in their battle against organized baseball…
...
The directors of the Terrapins have been authorized to raise $50,000 to wage a court fight to recover damages for losses they claim to have sustained through the failure of the Federal League promoters to consider them when peace on the diamond was declared.
...
According to President Rasin, the Baltimoreans will sue to be reimbursed for about $240,000, including $100,000 spent building a ball park…Baltimore admits that it has absolutely no chance whatever of breaking into the big leagues.

Unfortunately for those stockholders, the lawsuit didn’t go as well as they’d expected.
