New York Evening World, October 17, 1912:
The National League magnates after three hours of heated deliberations in executive session at the Waldorf-Astoria this afternoon to decide the fate of Horace Fogel, the Philadelphia club owner, for making a statement that baseball was crooked and that the National League race was fixed to let the Giants win the pennant adjourned in order to allow Mr. Fogel five days to present his case in writing.
The magnates went into executive session shortly before 3 o’clock, and for two hours raised voices could be heard outside the door, but not a statement was forthcoming.
They did eventually ban Fogel for life, but the family was redeemed nearly a century later when his great-grandson Jared became a spokesperson for Subway*.
