(The Players League was created by) a few porcine professionals who in their selfishness and love of gold tried to destroy the reserve rule. It is wonderful that these poor oppressed souls could not arrange a procession under a red flag and go through the streets shouting "Bread or Blood!" It is noteworthy that the men who kicked the most against the reserve rule are men from the slums, who were street loafers and idlers before playing ball; the men whose ignorance and loaferism made them a burden on the community and who would fall to the same level if baseball were wiped out tomorrow.

After the Players League was formed in the fall of 1889 as a second major league under the premise that the players, like stockholders, would share directly in the take (the league folded after one season)
