Tim Keefe will have for his partner in the sporting goods business William Becannon, who has been for a long time with A. G. Spalding. Mr. Becannon has been a feature in amateur base ball hereabouts for many years. It will be next to impossible for T. J. Keefe & Co. to get a store before the middle or latter part of March, so that in the mean time they will secure a large down-town office as a starter. New York Sun January 4, 1889

William Becannon is making a strong move to organize a commercial league in this city for next season. Already three clubs have agreed to join the movement. The idea is to secure six clubs to play ten games during June, July, and August. Mr. Becannon will try to secure teams from the largest business houses in town. New York Sun January 11, 1889
