Pittsburgh Press, January 11, 1916:
This didn’t happen, mostly because Pants Rowland wasn’t insane. Chicago moved Fournier to first base and gave Jackson the left field job. Eddie Murphy (not that one) started the year as the everyday right fielder and was miserable, handing the job to Shano Collins by the first week of May.

Pittsburgh Press, November 30, 1915:
Yeah, Charlie, take some money instead of one of the greatest players on the planet. Good move. Way to run a ballclub.
Elsewhere in the news 100 years ago today, the players’ fraternity wants to speed up games in part because two and a half hours is too long for a baseball game, Carl Mays says Ty Cobb is the greatest player in the world as well as the dirtiest, a writer in All Outdoors says he saw someone using a baseball glove as early as 1867-68, Cleveland skipper Lee Fohl discusses some of his theories on managing a team, and Pirates owner Barney Dreyfuss says there’s absolutely no way the proposed Federal League team in New York could hope to break even because it’s impossible for a club to average 10,000-12,000 fans a game and no club will ever get crowds like that.
