Milwaukee Journal, September 24, 1912:
After sizing up the past season, Charles Murphy, the Cub president, decided today that had all his ball tossers said “buttermilk” instead of “highballs” when the bartender said, “What’s yours?” they would now be hugging the National league pennant instead of being a bad second…
The following rules will be insisted on next season:
1. The use of intoxicating drinks of any kind is absolutely prohibited.
2. When the team is at home every player must report at the field, in uniform, no later than 10:30 a.m. each day, and must be on the field at least one hour before game time, at home or abroad.
3. All players must be in their rooms for the night not later than midnight, and should arise not later than 8 a.m.
4. The smoking of cigarettes is absolutely prohibited.
That means you, Evers. No more nicotine sprees and fudge orgies.
