    2. Connie Mack, 1862-1956
    3. Taylor Spink, 1888-1962
    4. Grantland Rice, 1880-1954
    5. Francis Richter, 1854-1926
    6. John B. Foster, 1863-1941
    7. Sam Crane, 1854-1925
    8. Louis Mencken, 1880-1956
    9. Monte Ward, 1860-1925
    10. Ferdinand C. Lane, 1885-1984

    The main things I look for are a sterling integrity and common sense.

      Looking through this thread, it looks odd to me that on hand people are talking about integrating baseball earlier than 1947 (which is probably a huge pipe-dream at best) and on the other they are talking about southerners as commissioner, or owners like Connie Mack who never seemed to have any inclanation to integrate.
