April 4, 1926: Westbrook Pegler, writing of Connie Mack and the Philadelphia Athletics, says, “The dealers came crowding from neighboring stands and bought up Mr. MacGillicuddy's athletes and soon he was left with nothing but his franchise and a wardrobe of uniforms, which later he populated with Joe the Gas Man, Sam the Ashman, Billy the Ice Man, Ike the Milk Man, Moe the Coal Man, Jim the Mail Man, George the Elevator Man and a couple of other guys.”
