Salt Lake Tribune, May 23, 1912:
“Ban Johnson is the most egotistical, the most overbearing and the most stubborn person in baseball today and his attack on the Detroit players and myself was most unwarranted,” said Ty Cobb, upon arriving home from Washington today.
“One of two things is certain. Either he was dead wrong in this affair or he ____” and here Ty expressed the “short and ugly word” in emphatic fashion.
“Johnson cannot harm me by keeping me out of the game. He only harms the Detroit team. My salary goes on just the same.”
I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what the short and ugly word is. My first instinct is the F word, but that would make absolutely no sense in the context of that sentence.
for his generous support.
