[quoting the New York World, purported quoting Spalding] Mr. Spalding has done his work well. “When I entered that first conference,” he said recently to a friend, “and saw all those elegant looking gentlemen, each clad in evening dress, while I had on the tweed suit I wore while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, I said to myself, 'These gentlemen intend to frighten us;' but after having talked with them thirty minutes I made up my mind I would drive a coach and four through the Players' League within six weeks.” And that is exactly what Mr. Spalding has done. If four horses are not enough there is plenty of room for fourteen—or forty. The Sporting Life December 27, 1890
