Clipping:Horace Phillips' character
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, February 25, 1883|
[from a Columbus correspondent] ...the entire management of the players and business [of the new Columbus Club] will be in the hands of Horace B. Phillips. He comes well indorsed by the officers of clubs he managed in Hornellsville, Syracuse, Troy, Baltimore and Philadelphia (both Athletics and Philadelphias). Phillips' weak point has been his nervous unsettled temperament and a desire to be too independent, but t since he came here he has shown a decided change of disposition. Letters from various people connected with the League and American Association acknowledge his ability as a manger, and state that if he pays strict attention to business he has no superior, being sharp, quick at taking advantage of a weak spot of an adversary, and moreover intelligent.
