The Daily Missoulian, February 17, 1917:

[D.F.] McGowan is a member of the legal staff of District No. 1 of the United States Forest Service. He has devised a new method of determining the “standing of the clubs” and will presently submit it to the consideration of the baseball magnates.
...
[An excerpt from the McGowan Plan:] The playing season is to be divided into periods corresponding to calendar months. During each of these periods the relative standing of the clubs is to be computed as at present, by averages of games won and lost…The team with the highest average for a period is, in an eight-club league, to be credited with eight points. The second team is to be given seven; the third, six; the fourth and fifth, five; the sixth, seventh and eight, four each.

I’ve got a counterproposal: If you win a game, you get a point. If you lose, you get no points. At the end of the season, the team who won the largest percentage of possible points is awarded the pennant.

The entire McGowan Plan is printed on the linked page. It’s all kinds of crazy.

BALL PLAYERS TO BE SOLDIERS

American Leaguers Will Be Given Instruction in Handling a Gun This Spring

American league baseball parks during the playing season are to be turned into military training camps and the players are to devote one hour a day to instruction. The league has adopted a resolution which provides that the players shall shoulder rifles as well as baseball bats.

They’re looking at you, Dave Davenport.

Washington Times, February 15, 1917:

Beaten to a frizzle, the baseball players’ fraternity quietly expired last night, when the leader called off the strike and released the men from their pledges. The fraternity was struggling for air after the National League club owners on Tuesday had wiped it off the books and had exposed the real cause for hold-up.

This body blow, which was delivered in spite of frantic requests from the fraternity for a hearing, made the strikers wilt. Many of them were in open revolt against the fraternity when they arose yesterday morning and found that the public had been informed that greed for gold was the real reason for the walkout.

Well, heck, the owners had been saying all along that the players were just being greedy. That’s labor negotiation PR 101.

Dave Davenport, of the St. Louis Americans pitching staff, was seriously wounded at his home in Runge, Texas, today when his rifle was accidentally discharged. Davenport had just returned from a hunt. The bullet passed through his chest and also inflicted a scalp wound.

Davenport must have recovered fairly quickly, because he led the American League with 39 starts in 1917.

Grantland Rice via the Philadelphia Evening Ledger, February 13, 1917:

“The moist ball must go.”—Governor [and National League president] Tener. That in itself will be no great deprivation. We can ramble along in the absence of the concrete fact.

But, in the spicy literature of the game, what new phases are to take the places of those employed to denote the spitball’s flight? What will take the place of “Damp Fling,” “Saliva Shoot,” “The Dripping Drop,” “The Moistened Hurl,” “The Foamy Fadeaway,” “The Slippery Shoot,” “The Soppy Dip,” etc.—thrilling phrases that have buoyed us up since Jack Chesbro and Harry Howell first broke in as masters of the gum-fed delivery?

We can do without the spitball in the game, but how can we survive this blighting deficit from the game’s literature? That, Governor, is decidedly another affair.

I really like the term ‘Damp Fling’. It’s whimsical and a bit gross, not unlike the spitball itself.

Chicago Eagle, February 10, 1917:

[Tacoma infielder] Fred McMullin came in from third on the dead run and slid for the plate. McMullin knew he didn’t touch it, but he was afraid to slide back as the catcher had the ball in his hand.
...
“He wasn’t safe, was he?” demanded Cadman, who was catching for Seattle. The umpire shook his head. At this, Cadman, holding the ball in his hand, dashed over to the Tacoma bench to tag McMullin. Fred waited until he all but reached his end of the bench, and then slid over to the other end.

Cadman followed him, and as he did so slipped on some mud and fell to his knees. McMullin leaped up from his seat, sprinted to the plate, and touched it.

The umpire called him safe.

What happens if neither the runner nor catcher realize home plate wasn’t touched? Does the ump refuse to continue play until the players figure out what happened?

Ban Johnson, American president, and Chas. Weeghman and Owner Comiskey of the Cubs and White Sox, respectively, approve the “preparedness plan” of Captain Houston, part owner of the Yankees.

Houston, who saw service in the Spanish-American fracas, and comes by his title honestly, plans for an hour or more each day to be devoted to military training in the federal camps. Trench digging and other military maneuvers, under the direction of an army officer, would help greatly to put the athletes in condition.

Trench Davis approves.

New York Sun, February 7, 1917:

In connection with comment by nine big league pilots on proposed changes it is interesting to note reasons assigned for the falling off in batting.
...
[Lee] Fohl points out the fact that these days clubs carry more pitchers than they did back in the old days of the famous sluggers. This, of course, enables pitches to take more rest between games, and furthermore permits managers to remove a man who is going badly and try another.

Hindsight is 20/20, of course, but I love that the talking point of the 1916-1917 offseason was changing rules to increase offense. Babe Ruth and Rogers Hornsby were just sort of sitting there saying “We got this”.

The [Pendleton] East Oregonian, February 6, 1917:

[Braves owner] Percy Haughton started it when he declared the offensive side of baseball needed some changes, and then outlined a few. Now they’re all doing it.
...
One of the most recent suggestions along these lines is that a pitcher not be allowed to pitch his first two balls to the batter in the curve fashion. Each of the first two heaves should be straight and above board, it is contended.

Every time I think I’ve seen the dumbest possible rule change to goose offense, I see something dumber. I’m with [former Red Sox manager] Bill Carrigan, quoted in the Ottumwa Courier:

You don’t hear many managers or umpires recommending that this or that rule be changed, do you?...Fans like the game as it is today. When they start complaining it will be time to consider what changes should be made.

At least somebody was being sensible.

Chicago Eagle, February 3, 1917:

Bill Byron, the singing umpire, who says there hasn’t been a single kick against his decisions since October, tells a new story on himself.
...
He umpired in Newark one day and in the course of the game he called a man out at the plate on a close play. The player arose, dusted off his uniform, and then pointing to the chimney which towers high over the field, he said to Byron: “Bill, I ain’t sayin’ nothin’ to you. I ain’t makin’ no kick or nothin’, but I hope that that chimney falls on you and hits you one brick at a time.”

Bill says the hope was so soothing and so original that he did not put the player out of the game.

If I were the umpire, not only would I not have ejected the guy, I’d have had difficulty keeping a straight face.

Seattle Star, February 2, 1917:

Severance of diplomatic relations with Germany, in the opinion of President Weeghman of the Cubs, would not mean the discontinuance of organized baseball for a season.

But Weeghman believes it would be the signal for a general retrenching all along the line in the majors. Training camps might be abandoned, and players who have not returned signed contracts probably would face a further cut in salaries.

“Just at present, it looks like a tough baseball season,” Weeghman said. “I have not feared the players strike at any time, but it will be different should business be affected by war.”

World War I obviously had profound effects on MLB, but it’s awfully convenient that Weeghman used it as an opportunity to subtly threaten unsigned players.

Butte Daily Post, February 1, 1917:

Walter Johnson, pitcher for the Washington American League club, narrowly escaped death by drowning a few days ago, it was made known [in Coffeyville, KS].

While hunting coons with a party of friends at night, Johnson attempted to cross a river on the ice. The ice broke and although a strong swimmer, his heavy hunting clothes so impeded his efforts that it was impossible to keep his head above the surface for any length of time.

The timely arrival of a companion saved him. Johnson is none the worse for his experience.

And that companion was a time traveler named Nomar Garciaparra.

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, January 31, 1917:

President John K. Tener of the National League said today that he will submit to the joint rules committee which meets [in New York] next month a recommendation to increase the width of the home plate from 17 to 18 inches and send a batsman to first base on three balls instead of four. Such a change in rules he declared, would bring about the desired increase in batting.

A four-ball walk is sacred in 2017, but was less than 30 years old when Tener designed this proposal. I’m happy they didn’t go through with it, but it wouldn’t have seemed too insane to the people back then.

Norwich Bulletin, January 30, 1917:

Rule alterations [to help batters] might have the desired effect, yet the best plan ever offered for the bettering end of baseball, as the writer views it, was proposed 10 years ago, by Billy Fox, then second baseman for the Lincoln baseball club…

The Fox foul line, starting from the home plate, would pass first base a foot outside the sack. On a field in which the outfield fence is 360 feet distant from the plate, the Fox foul line would be four feet outside the old standard.

Billy Fox argued that in almost every ball game the batters hit line drives and sharp grounders or lay down bunts which go foul only by inches; he maintained that as much batting skill is required to hit one of these drives which goes foul by a slender margin as in lining the leather onto safe territory within the present lines.

What a terrible idea. If you move the foul lines, you’ll still have batted balls that just barely land in foul territory. It’s just that they’ll be different batted balls. That’s not a bug, that’s a feature. If you don’t want foul balls, play cricket.

Jeez.

Albuquerque Journal, January 27, 1917:

President William F. Baker, of the Philadelphia National league club, [yesterday] made public a letter sent to Grover Cleveland Alexander, the club’s star pitcher, refusing the player’s demand for a three-year contract at $15,000 a year. Mr. Baker told Alexander he was “astonished” at his demand, and that an offer of $8,000 a year still stood and “would not be increased to any great amount.”

Ty Cobb made $20,000 in 1917, Tris Speaker made $15,000, and Walter Johnson made $16,000. In the context of the era, it seems completely reasonable that the greatest pitcher on the planet would ask for $15K.

Anyway, Alexander ended up signing for $12,500. The Phils, correctly guessing that Ol’ Pete would be drafted into the army in 1918 (and presumably unhappy with his salary) traded him to the Cubs after the season for Mike Prendergast, Pickles Dillhoefer, and $55,000. Chicago won the 1918 pennant and Philadelphia finished in the first division exactly once in the next 30 years. But, hey, they saved some money.

“I want to see teams go after each other with hammer and tongs to win; see blood in their eyes when they come on the field; see them at dagger points from first to last instead of taking it out of the umpires.

“This frat business has made ball players too room-matey.”

...because abusing umpires was a new, post-Fultz phenomenon. It never happened before the players attempted to unionize.

In disposition [Frank Schulte] is droll, and he probably wouldn’t become excited if he fell out of an aeroplane. His mind poise at the plate is the same.
...
[While a member of the Cubs of the nineteen aughts], Schulte never made any noise except when his bat spoke and a ball landed in one of Chicago’s streets.
...
One of the Cubs who was a strong booster for Schulte called him aside on an afternoon after he had lifted a home and remarked: “Say, Frank, you’d hit .400 every year if you didn’t appear to be asleep at the plate.”

“Don’t worry about that,” Schulte drolled. “Many a groove ball I get from pitchers who think I’m taking a nap up there.”

It’s safe to say I’d have been a huge Wildfire Schulte fan if I’d been born 100 years earlier.

A charge that last year’s pennant race in the Pacific Coast baseball league was “fixed” so that the Vernon club could not win was made in a statement by Edward R. Maier, former owner of the club, printed [in San Francisco yesterday]. Maier was expelled from membership in the league last September. At that time the explanation of Maier’s departure generally accepted was that he did not get along with the directors.
...
[Maier:] “In the final game of the season, that upon which hinged the race itself a certain Los Angeles pitcher, whose turn it was to work, was told he could pitch the game only on condition that he would agree to lose. He indignantly refused to enter into any such agreement and he was not permitted to pitch.”

The PCL, of course, denied the allegations. I guess it would probably be easy enough to check the box scores of the final day of the season to see if Los Angeles used a spot starter.

Marshalltown [Iowa] Times-Republican, January 20, 1917:

Vic Saiere [sic], first baseman of the Chicago Nationals, whose sight was thought to be failing him, has assured President Weegham [sic] of the Chicago club that his eyes have regained their normal strength after a winter’s rest.

Saier is a movie fan and the theory was that he had damaged his eyes watching the flickering light on the screen and sitting up late reading. He avoided any strain whatever during the winter months and now believes he is as good as ever.

Unfortunately, Saier didn’t get much of a chance to show whether his eyes had recovered. He broke his leg a week into the 1917 season and was out for the year, then missed all of 1918 working for the war effort instead of playing baseball.

When Saier returned in 1919, he struggled badly, but there’s no way to know whether that was a result of his eyes, his leg, the time away from baseball, or something else.

Elsewhere in the newspapers of January 20, 1917, Giants executive John Foster seems unconcerned about a possible strike because major league teams can just use replacement players.

Ty Cobb, Detroit slugger, speed merchant, said but two words in defining his stand on the baseball strike situation. “I’m neutral,” said the Georgia peach, in a telegram to a St. Louis sport editor today. He had been asked whether he would join the Tigers on their spring training jaunt or line up with Dave Fultz in the proposed strike.

Washington Herald, January 18, 1917:

The tip was out, but could not be confirmed, that [AL president] Ban Johnson and [AFL president] Samuel Gompers were as close as Damon and Pythias. Indeed, it was said unofficially that Johnson held a contract that bound the federation not to butt into baseball.

This contract was subscribed to by the union heads some years ago as a means of settling a labor strike that arose in connection with the building of the Cleveland American League Club grandstand. The unions of the Middle West have been going strong for the American League for some time.

This is obviously 20/20 hindsight on my part, but it’s almost like the entire universe was jumping up and down, screaming and waving red flags, trying to tell union head Dave Fultz not to call a strike.

Baseball is to be unionized. The [ballplayers’] fraternity, through its President, David L. Fultz, applied in Washington, D.C., for a charter from the American Federation of Labor. Samuel Gompers, President of the Federation…said there was no doubt that the fraternity would be admitted to membership.

The entire Boston Red Sox baseball club will go on strike if Dave Fultz, head of the baseball players’ fraternity says the word, in the opinion of Duffy Lewis, star outfielder.

An anonymous player quoted in the Washington Times, January 16, 1917:

“We are not fairly represented in all statements sent out from fraternity headquarters…Major league players did not pledge themselves to a sympathetic strike in the interests of minor league men. We agreed not to sign contracts until the major leagues eliminated disability clauses. That has been done. We have no further quarrel.”

We know how this situation played out, but in retrospect, it seems pretty apparent that Fultz should have had some idea that he was overplaying his hand.
