Pittsburgh Gazette Times, April 5, 1913:
Alleged dissensions between Manager John Evers and members of the Chicago National League baseball club came to a head…when Trainer Semmons presented his resignation in the form of a blow to the manager’s jaw.
The fight started when Evers asked Semmens if he had ordered the team to report for practice this afternoon. The trainer replied that he gave such instructions when instructed to do so by the manager. At this Evers lost his temper and is said to have applied foul language to the trainer and the latter replied with his fist.
Semmons left the squad at the railway station. He said Manager Tinker wanted him at Cincinnati and that he would sign a contract to train that team.
The best way to get Joe Tinker to give you a job: Punch Johnny Evers.

Toledo News-Bee, December 10, 1912:
Johnny Evers was riding in a New York taxicab that almost ran down Heinie Zimmerman, the champion batter of the Cubs and the National league. “Hey, whatcherdoing?” Evers shouted to the driver. “I’ll have troubles enough managing the Cubs next season without you killing my team.”
It’s even harder to manage a team when your best position player is throwing games.
for his generous support.
