Milwaukee Journal, June 4, 1914:
Regardless of who the ringleader was, Davenport was in the Federal League by the middle of June 1914. He had an absolutely absurd workload in the 1915 Federal League: 55 games, 46 starts, 30 complete games, 10 shutouts, 392.2 innings pitched, and 1497 batters faced while putting up a 145 ERA+. Davenport was never the same again, but to be fair, he had never been the same before.
This was the second time in two months that Herzog and Marsans got into it. This time Marsans jumped to the Federal League, playing nine games before an injunction forced him onto the sidelines pending the outcome of the Reds’ court case against him for jumping his contract. More than a year later, Marsans was permitted to rejoin the St. Louis Terriers, but the time away from baseball had apparently eroded his skills and ruined his career.

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, April 7, 1914:
As I mentioned last week, Marsans was a second-tier star at this point. In addition to being the first Cuban player with a significant career, he had hit .307 as a regular over the past two seasons and gotten MVP support both years.
His return to Cincinnati wasn’t a happy one, though. By June, Marsans and Herzog were at each others’ throats again. I’m sure I’ll follow the story closely as it unfolds in a couple months, but the Readers’ Digest version is that Marsans jumped to the Federal League, the Reds took it to court, and it pretty much ruined his career.

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, April 4, 1914:
This was a pretty big deal. Over the past two years as a semi-everyday player, Marsans had hit .307 and had gotten some MVP support.
He was back with the Reds within a week or so, but jumped to the Federal League at midseason.
