Mcgraw Has Found His Jewish Champion

Download PDF for this date

John McGraw’s quest for a Jewish baseball champion for the “Giants” seems to have ended, at least for the time being.

McGraw has secured Moses Solomon, a 20-year old player who, he believes, may become a second Babe Ruth.

McGraw stated recently that he would be willing to pay $100,000 for a promising Jewish baseball player, believing that an ambitious Jewish player would well repay the huge investment.

Solomon has established a fine record in the Minors’ League, having secured 48 home-runs this season.
