    Delahanty remained dissatisfied, and on July 2nd, when the team was traveling on a train from Detroit to Cleveland, Big Ed became drunk and belligerent. He was ordered to leave the train in southern Ontario, across the Niagara River from Buffalo, New York. He walked onto the railroad bridge, was accosted by the night watchman, but fought him off, and then either jumped or accidentally fell over the side to his death in the river.

    Delahanty was determined to leave the Senators to join the New York Giants, but a compromise was reached that kept him with Washington.

    Clarke also played 88 games at first base. He was a coach for the Princeton University team in the offseason, so that is probably the source of his "P" sweater.
