Clipping:Territorial rights; ineligible players; California as a refuge from the National Agreement
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Saturday, December 1, 1888|
[reporting on the arbitration committee meeting 11/30/1888] Several important changes were made in the national agreement by the board of arbitration at its first day’s session here. The most notable were those which absolutely prevent any association from locating a club in the territory of another association party to the national agreement; which forbid any player under contract or reservation from playing with a club or picked nine containing an ineligible player...
The action taken prohibiting players as well as clubs from taking part in games with towns [sic] containing blacklisted or ineligible men would have shut out several games the Australian nines played on the coast. It will put a stop to certain players using California as a lever in gaining or attempting to gain their salary demands.
