Kenesaw Mountain Landis Newsbeat

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-17-2014

Hugh Fullerton via Toledo News-Bee, April 17, 1914:

Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, the man who soaked Standard Oil $29,000,000 for violating the balk rule, has been named to decide the most important part of the baseball war.

Whether or not they know it, Judge Landis is the most eminently qualified man in the world to decide any question that may arise in the damage suit that has been brought by the Philadelphia National league team against the Federal league leaders.

Fortunately for the question of prejudice being raised against him, Judge Landis never has declared himself as to the Federal league, and he is both an American and a National league fan.

Oh, sure, totally. Landis can’t possibly be prejudiced in favor of the existing major leagues because…he’s a fan of the existing major leagues? I guess? Right?
