CLAIMS BALL PLAYERS
WERE TRADED FOR DOES
"Miner" Brown Affirms Minneapolis
Manager Got Bull in Exchange for
Man—Jumping Flayers Arraign
Chicago, Jan. 12. —-Affidavits that
two ball players under contract under
the National agreement were traded for
dogs were among the documents riled
yesterday in the Federal Court in sup
port of the Federal suit against organ
tMordecai Brown, former Chicago Na
tional pitcher, submitted au affidavit
concerning the dog transactions.
"Joe Cantillon, manager of the Min
neapolis club of the American Associa
tion, at one time traded a professional '
ball player for a bulldog,'' Brown |
swore. "Your affiant also believes that
Koger 'Bresuahan, while manager of the
St. Louis club of the National League,
traded a professional player, a pitcher
named Hopper, to Richard Kinsella,
then manager of the Springfield (111.)
club, in the Three-I League, for a bird
A score of affidavits relating in de
tail alleged wrongs offered ball players
by officials of organized baseball, to
gether with copies of the National
agreement, stenographic reports of
speeches by baseball inaguates and
copies of contracts and telegrams by
which the Federal League will attempt
to support its suit were filed.
The affidavits are headed by a
lengthy document from Joseph Tinker,
now manager of the Chicago Federals,
at a salary of $12,300 a year. Tinker
became a Federal, he said, when C. H.
ITofcets, president of the Brooklyn Na
tional league club, offered him only
$5,000 a year, according to the affi
davit, Tinker wanted $7,500.
Ebbets termed this sum exorbitant
and wrote Tinker: "While we expect!
to become a first-division team—yes, a 1
possible championship contender—with i
all our brig-lit prospects it is neverthe
less unreasonable for us to pay you
more than you have ever received as a
player for a championship club."
Tinker also made a strong objection
to the ten days' clause of the players'
Opjortunity for advancement is de
nied the players, according to William |
Catkins, business manager of the In-'
dianapolis Federals, by the following !
methods of organized ball:
1. Farming out players.
2. "Covering up." This is when t
a minor club owner has a promising
player whom he wants to protect from
the draft. The owner negotiates with
a friendly major league club owner, ac
cording to Wat kins, and au ostensible
(•uri-hase made and the player delivered
at the end of the season. When the i
time comes for the major league club i
to reduce the number of players the j
minor leaguer is returned to the club
from which he came.
Otto Knabe, manager of the Balti- !
more Federals, affirmed that players j
were not allowed to make anv sugges
tions relative to the printed' form of
their contracts. He also attacked the
ten days' clause, which he said allowed
the indiscriminate sale of plavers.
Other affidavits were filed bv Ed- )
ward Hanlon, director of the Baltimore
club; Lnnis T. Oakes, Pittsburgh man- '
ager: Lloyd H. Rickart, secretary to the j
t ederal League; William Perritt, Pitts'
burgh pitcher: Edward Konetchv,
I'ittsburgh: Harry Goldman, secretarv
of the Baltimore Federals, and Lee
Magee, of 'Brooklyn.
A stenographic' copy of a speej'n bv j
August Herrmann, president of the Na i
tioual Commission. i n which he ridi
culed the Federal League, also was filed.
