Clipping:The brotherhood and the standard contract
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Wednesday, August 4, 1886|
[from an interview of John M. Ward] A great majority of the cases in which players are unfairly treated arise, not from the reserve rule or salary limit, but from a contract which legally is injustice—a contract in which the parties of the one part sign away all rights, and the party of the other 'reserves' all. I should consider it the first duty of this organization to meet the League officials, and in a spirit of fairness draw up a contract in which the equities of each might be reasonably protected.
