"The Athletics are great batters be

"Harry Davis, Bender and those old

pitchers. They can tell by some little

when the opposing pitcher intends de

is coming, a slow ball, a spltter, and

A little later the big league players
organized a "Brotherhood," which soon
became a baseball power. In 1887 the
Brotherhood was strong enough to
force the magnates to grant a new
form of contract. There continued to
be many disagreements between the
plutocrats and the players, however,
and during the season of 1889 the dis
affection reached the point of revolu

the Idea of starting a new league, to
