1903 Phillies Park collapse
I was on the Philadelphia Athletics Historical society website the other day, and I came across an article about the Baker Bowl collapsing in 1903. It cited some articals from the Philadelphia Inquierer shortly after the collapse, but I couldn't find them on the Internet anywhere. Does anyone know where the articals could be located? Thanks.

The structure of the park had been fatally compromised by the undeniable fact that the Phillies were so putrid. A famous advertising sign portended the tragic collapse: "The Phillies Use Lifebuoy Soap!" read the sign. "Yeah, but they still stink!" was the automatic response.
