Milwaukee Journal, August 23, 1913:
[Minneapolis Millers co-owner] Mike Cantillon is scared and says he is scared stiff. He avers that ill-timed publicity may lose the Millers the opportunity to get Tom Hughes as some of the clubs of the major leagues, friendly to rival [American] association clubs, may toss a refusal to waive in the Minneapolis wheel and tear up the deal.
One of the news gathering agencies sent the story [about Minneapolis acquiring Hughes] broadcast throughout the land and as a result Miguel has spent some sleepless nights. When he can’t sleep, he sits up on the bedside and cusses the newspapers. He cusses so hard he can’t sleep…
Cantillon didn’t get Hughes and he didn’t get the pennant, finishing second. He may or may not have gotten sleep.
Long Tom was a Los Angeles Angel in 1914, throwing 348.1 innings of 1.91 ERA ball. Hughes eventually wound up in Minneapolis, making 20 appearances for the 1918 Millers.
