Pittsburgh Gazette Times, March 22, 1913:
William T. McCullough of Pittsburgh was in conference with President Powers of the Federal Baseball League today. He stated that an investigation by the United States government would be asked within a short time in Congress…It is claimed that organized baseball is a trust and should be investigated under the Sherman anti-trust law.
Federal League officials say that they have plenty of money behind them and will start the biggest war in the history of baseball, if not given their rights.
Baseball isn’t a business. It’s a sport!
