    Thanks, Elmer. I had failed to notice that the 1910 "First Home Game" was actually an exhibition game; I've corrected my posts accordingly. Tim Jordan got to play first base in that pre-season game, possibly for the last time as a Superba. At the start of the season, he was given five plate appearances, all as a pinch hitter (he went 1-for-5 with a 3-run homer). His contract was sold to Toronto in the Eastern League on May 7th, and he never again appeared in the major leagues. He was negotiating with Buffalo of the Federal League during the 1914 season to become their first baseman, but they signed Hal Chase instead.
