Trick McSorley's Obituary

McSorley, 84, Dead; Former Ballplayer

St. Louis. Feb. 10 (AP).-John B. (Trick) McSorley, 84, old-time professional baseball player, died today of apoplexy.

During his career, which began in 1874 and ended in 1890, he played with the St. Louis Red Stockings and the old St. Louis Browns, Indianapolis, Buffalo, Detroit, Toledo, Milwaukee, Kansas City and Peoria. He appeared at every position, but chiefly shortstop and centerfield.
-The Washington Post, February 11, 1936

I don't know why but I think it's awesome that McSorley's death made the AP wire.
