1 quote found searching on David Jefferson "Davy" Jones

I played six weeks in the summer of 1901 with Rockford in the Three-I League, hit .384, fielded like a blue streak, and before the season was over I was sold to the Chicago Cubs. However, the Milwaukee Brewers in the brand-new American League made me a good offer, so instead of reporting to Chicago I jumped to Milwaukee. See, the American League was an outlaw league in 1901, and Milwaukee was one of the eight teams in the league that very first year. The next year, 1902, the Milwaukee franchise was transferred to St. Louis and we became the original St. Louis Browns. So not only did I play in the American League in the very first year of its existence, but I'm also a charter member of two of the teams in that league. Neither one of which exists any longer, a fact for which I assure you I can in no way be held responsible.
