...A. H. Nichols, late of the Louisvilles, who, with Hall, Crave and others, was put upon the blacklist in 1877 for alleged crookedness. Nichols has addressed a long petition to the League requesting reinstatement so that his name may be handed down to his children without stain of crooked base ball playing upon it. He states that he has no intention of returning to the diamond, and accompanies his petition with a formal resignation from the League in the event of his appeal being granted. The Sporting Life November 16, 1887
