Federal League Newsbeat

Topeka State Journal, December 11, 1914:
Ward wasn’t quite as worried about fairness when Phillies pitcher Tom Seaton, who led the National League in wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts in 1913, jumped to the Brookfeds for the 1914 season.

Chicago Tribune, December 4, 1914:
Washington owner Clark Griffith personally traveled to Coffeyville and made a successful counteroffer in order to keep the Big Train in DC.
Also, the “Tinx”! I really like that.

Toledo News-Bee, November 18, 1914:
...meaning another year of the Federal League-Organized Baseball war. But you all know that already.

Toledo News-Bee, November 13, 1914:
That announcement was indeed made after the Federal League met on November 28, but it was made a year later. Weeghman bought the Cubs, Phil Ball bought the Browns, five other teams took cash settlements, and the Baltimore Terrapins filed a famous but ultimately unsuccessful anti-trust suit.

Harrisburg Telegraph, October 28, 1914:
...and Jones returned with slightly less money, a checkbook, and no Walter Johnson. The Big Train was having none of it.
As an aside, I love that Fielder Jones’s given name was Fielder. An apt name for a guy who played 1255 big league games in center field and led the league in both range factor and fielding percentage.

Toledo News-Bee, October 20, 1914:
It’s interesting that the basic framework of the Federal League peace treaty was essentially in place a year before it actually happened. As Herrmann suggested was likely to be the case, Weeghman did buy the Cubs and Ward did not buy the Dodgers.
