Milwaukee Journal, September 3, 1912:
Without a doubt “Rube” Foster is the greatest ebony skinned ball player in the game.
The “Black Mathewson” just about hits the nail head. Not that “Big Six” and “Rube” are constructed on the same physical lines; far from it. “Matty” is an athlete, while Foster bears a resemblance to a barrel. He is the heaviest human that ever played ball for money, with the possible exception of Capt. Anson.
If some Westinghouse Edison-Macaroni would “shake a laig” and invent something to change the complexion of Mistah Foster’s underwear, we would see him in the majors.
Or, y’know, the majors could quit with their racist bull****.
