Pittsburgh Gazette Times, August 8, 1911:
From all accounts the baseball game between Glassport and Coal Valley, played on the grounds of the latter team last Saturday afternoon, will long be remembered in the Monongahela valley. Some people declare it wasn’t a baseball game but a battle royal on a large scale.
[Constable Houseman] made a valiant effort to stop the fight, but not having 400 or 500 pairs of handcuffs and a machine gun with him, gave up the job and took to cover.
The female rooters are said to have wielded umbrellas and parasols with terrible effect. Nobody stopped the fight. It stopped all of itself when everybody was exhausted.
Took an oath, they stuck it out ‘til the end.
