Al Lawson Still a Joke, 6 Years Removed From Baseball

[Between 2009 and 2011, I maintained a TypePad blog, “More Fiends,” intended to update my book Baseball Fiends and Flying Machines. Those posts can still be found in the Wayback Machine, but I stopped updating that site in 2011. Because this WordPress site promotes and updates all my books, I’d like to republish some of those earlier posts.]

Posted 12/9/2009:

From the Nov. 21, 1914 issue of Sporting Life, a pretty good jab at Al Lawson’s record of organizing baseball leagues:

“Of the 20,000 leagues under the sea, it is estimated that Al Lawson held stock in 19,999.”
