The lesser-known subplot of Wrigley Field’s first game, in the Toledo News-Bee, April 24, 1914:
Not really terribly well done by the KC Feds, allowing someone to get close enough to Johnson during a game to serve him a court order.
Anyway, Johnson was in legal limbo for months and didn’t play again until July 25, when he threw a complete game for the Packers. When the Federal League died after the 1915 season, so did the Chief’s major league career.
Shouldn’t really be much of a surprise that a decent but unspectacular pitcher who fought organized baseball in court didn’t have much of a career afterwards.
