Federal League Newsbeat

Pittsburgh Press, October 7, 1915:
This is much more polite than Herrmann needed to be. If I were in his shoes, I probably would have replied with a telegram that said one word: “No.”

Toledo News-Bee, October 6, 1915:
Yeah, that’s bogus. I’m with you on that, E.W. Gwinner, not that it matters. On the other hand, the Federal League had played its final game at this point anyway, so it’s not like the Pittfeds were robbed of an opportunity to raise the pennant or anything.
By the way, the 1915 Federal League race was wild, one of the closest races in history. Here are the final standings of the top three:
CHI 86-66 .566 --- STL 87-67 .565 --- PIT 86-67 .562 0.5

New York Tribune, September 29, 1915:
The fans would indeed have to wait for night baseball. The first night game in MLB history took place in 1935.

Milwaukee Journal, September 25, 1915:
Yeah, it looks like Spink was just making stuff up. None of the Federal League teams played each other more than the scheduled 22 times. Not a great look for the Sporting News of 100 years ago.

Milwaukee Journal, September 15, 1915:
He didn’t take the offer. McGraw was no dummy.

Seattle Star, August 13, 1915:
Wowsers. That would have been crazy. Obviously this didn’t happen, with the Federal League months away from its fatal implosion.

Grand Forks Daily Herald, August 6, 1915:
I’m jealous. It’s always been my dream to be paid handsomely without any obligation to work.
Anyway, on August 19, 1915, a federal judge ruled that Marsans could play in the Federal League until the appeal was heard. Obviously, with the collapse of the Federal League after the 1915 season, the lawsuit became moot.

Pittsburgh Press, July 6, 1915:
He was right to laugh, but it’s not like Aragon went on to fame and fortune in the big leagues. He had cups of coffee with the Yankees in 1916 and 1917 and hit .116/.164/.130 those two seasons with an OPS+ of -11. Aragon had a pretty solid minor league career, though, hitting around .300 mostly for Richmond.

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, April 30, 1915:
The game was originally ruled a forfeit to the Giants, but when the crowd began to become visibly agitated, the two teams agreed to play the game without Kauff. The Braves won 13-8 in seven innings, the NL President voided Kauff’s contract, and the outfielder went back to the Federal League. He led the outlaw loop in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging, and stolen bases that season.

Pittsburgh Press, April 10, 1915:
I had no idea Federal League teams had 18-man rosters. That seems ridiculously small.
