    Jack Glasscock

    Pardon me linking offsite, but I just wrote something about Jack Glasscock. I'm trying to build him up a bit for SABR's 19th Century Overlooked Legend honor (the preliminarily list of candidates went out this week). Curious about thoughts…

    Did Glasscock get into some sort of trouble during a game in Indianapolis and have to smuggled out of the park by horse and carriage? I know I read about a player this happened to and am 99% sure it was in Indianapolis. I can't remember where I read it or I would simply find it.

    Hmmm… didn't come up in my research on the piece. I'd think it would have.

    I figured, but thought maybe you wanted to focus on playing and not a controversial event, if it had occurred.

    It was Orator Shafer and Silver Flint. The cops showed up to arrest them and Cap Anson stalled the cops until they could escape. Then arrested Anson, who made bail.
