"Will the East Organize Soon - Opinion is Strong That She Will Come Under. - (By C.D. Marchall.) - I have been asked many time about the situation in last fall's circles in the East, did I think that the big Eastern cities such as Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Atlantic City, Brooklyn, and New York would organize a league of base ball. It is known that there is a little budfulling circulating among some of the Eastern managers and that extends into the West but it is thought that the storm will soon blow over. Now that the West has organized and is busy laying plans of how to keep her best players, I am sure that the Eastern managers will be almost forced to come together. They know Rube Foster and C.I. Taylor, as well as you do and what is more they fear these two wizards of the West and since the news has reached them that the West has "come together" they are shocked, presumably. But enby and this "get even" idea are to be elminiated in colored base ball circles in the season of 1920 and only thought of heading the league teams is the thing uppermost in every manager's mind. Winning the pennant should be the argument."

"Eastern Sport World - Bacharachs Coming Soon - New York, New York, April 23. - The Bacharach Giants, who are at present touring the South, and cleaning up everything in sight, will play Tesdeau's Bears a double-header at Dyckman Oval Sunday, May 2. Cannon Ball Dick Redding will hook up with Big Jeff in one of the big games."

Manhattan, NY
"Bacharachs at Oval - This Sunday, May 2, the famous Bacharach Giants will be the attraction at Dyckman Oval in a double-header with Jeff Tesreau's Bears. The Bears have a clean slate up to this outing and are confident in whipping Dick Redding's crew. Last season the Race boys took six straight from the Dyckman Heights boys before yielding to defeat. With such stars as John Henry Lloyd, George Shiverly, Fred Hutchinson, Ben Taylor, Ernest Gatewood and others of last year's team out of the line-up, it is doubtful if the Bacharachs are as strong as last year. If not, the Bears are likely to take their measure as they have been considerably strengthened. The game will be worth going miles to see, and hundreds of fans are preparing for the attraction."

Manhattan, NY
"Bears to Meet Giants - Jeff Tesreau's Bears will meet the Bacharach Giants, in a double-header tomorrow afternoon at Dyckman Oval, near the Dyckman Street station of the subway."

Manhattan, NY
"Tesreau's Bears Win Twice - Defeat Bacharach Giants, 7 to 5 and 13 to 5, at Dyckman Oval. - Jeff Tesreau's Bears won both ends of their double header with the Bacharach Giants yesterday afternoon at Dyckman Oval. With Tesreau pitching the opening game, the Bears triumphed by 7 to 5 and took the second contest by 13 to 5. The former Giant got three hits in four times at the bat in the opening tilt."

Manhattan, NY
"Licked Twice - John Connors' Bacharach Giants met defeat in both ends of a double-header at the hands of Jeff Tesreau's Bears last Sunday by the scores of 7 to 5 and 13 to 5. Six thousand fans gathered at Dyckman Oval, the home of the Bears, long before the first game was called, to welcome the Bacharachs back home, who have been touring the South. String Bean Williams, formerly of Rube Foster's American Giants, started for the Bacharachs against Burke for the Dyckman Heights boys. The big fellow was not in the best of form and met his Waterloo in the sixth frame when the white boys put across six runs. He was relieved by Ryan, who did fairly well the remainder of the game. In the second tilt Cannon Ball Dick Redding did duty on the mound against Big Jeff. The game looked good for the Race boys until the eighth inning, when Jeff's boys got busy with the stick and when the smoke cleared away five runs had been counted for. By winning both games last Sunday, still leaves the Bears undefeated this season, making their eighth consecutive victory."

"Big Game Sunday. - The attraction at Dyckman Oval this Sunday will be a return double-header between the Bacharach Giants and Tesreau's Bears, the home team. The Bacharachs are hot about their double defeat last Sunday and are out for revenge. Dick Redding and Big Jeff, both old war horses, will fight it out in the sunset tilt."

Manhattan, NY
"Giants and Tesreau's Divide - The Bacharach Giants and Jeff Tesreau's Bears split even in their double-header last Sunday at Dyckman Oval, the Bacharachs batting out a victory in the first game and allowing Big Jeff to trim them in the sunset tilt. Seven thousand five hundred persons witnessed the games, and is said to be the largest crowd to witness a game on a semi-pro ground this year. The feature of both games was the number of home runs collected by both teams. Dick Redding, who started the first game, was in superb form and allowed Jeff's team only two hits, while the white boys used up four pitchers. In the third inning the first two Bacharach batters up made clean home runs over the center field fence. In the second game, although Rohoaw, Yank and Brown collected homers, Tesreau allowed only six hits and won his game against Red Ryan, who hurled for Connor's team. Next Sunday the Bears meet the High Bridge Athletics and the Emeralds in a double-header at the oval. Both teams have suffered defeat this season on the heights, and will, no doubt, be out for revenge."

Philadelphia, PA
"Hilldale Seeks to Recover Dick Lundy - The Hilldale Baseball and Exhibition Company has filed a suit in equity in the Common Pleas Court against Richard Lundy a professional ball player, to have him enjoined from playing with the Bacharach Giants, in violation of his contract with the plaintiffs. It is alleged that after Dick Lundy had been engaged for the season by the Hilldale club he jumped his contract and is now playing with the Bacharach Giants."

In their last meeting two weeks ago each won a victory. The Bacharachs have been considerably strengthened in the past week and are sure to put up a stiff game against the Heights boy. Tesreau has twice beaten Connor's team, and no doubt Dick Redding will be sent in this Sunday to keep his honor from making it three in a row. The jazz band will be on hand, as usual, with their spicy music. There will also be a big parade through Harlem at 1 o'clock."

Manhattan, NY
"T.s and B.s Split - In two well-played games at Dyckman Oval last Sunday the Bacharachs and Jeff Tesreau's Bears each won a game, the first going to Connor's team, while Big Jeff won his own game in the sunset tilt with a clean home run over the center field fence in the 11th inning. On account of the inclement weather the regular crowd was missing, only about 3,000 persons witnessing the games.

"Bacharachs Bow Twice - New York, New York, June 4. - John Connor's Bacharach Giants met defeat twice last Sunday at Bronx field at the hands of Heinie Zimmerman's Bronx Giants, scores, 10 to 4 and 8 to 3.

There was considerable trouble between both teams during the games over questionable decisions given by the umpires. Both teams journeyed to Atlantic City to play on Monday where the Bacharach's formally opened their 1920 season."

May 31, 1920

Atlantic City, NJ
"Bacharach's Opening - Atlantic City, New Jersey, June 11. - Not discouraged with the trimming handed them the day previous in a double-header by Heinie Zimmerman's Bronx Giants, at Bronx Field, New York City, the Bacharach Giants opened the season here on Decoration Day with a double victory over Heinie's team before a crowd of 10,000 fans. Ceremonies for the opening game of the season as used by the big leagues were gone through without a mishap. Mayor Bacharach of this city, after whom the team is named, threw out the first ball amid great applause, after which the slaughter of the New York boys took place. The home team has booked many splendid attractions for the fans, and some real games can be looked forward to."

June 4, 1920

New York, NY
"Connors and Savage Disagree - New York, June 4. - From an authoritative source our sporting department was informed last week that the Bacharach Giants will not be seen in action again this season at Dyckman Oval. So the story goes, it was learned that the management of the Oval and Mr. Connors had a disagreement over financial matters, involving the amount of percentage to be paid his (Mr. Connors') team. Each faction declare they are right. For the benefit of baseball fans who travel to the Oval each Sunday to see the games there should be some consideration shown, but they are the least thought of. Some of these days whoever is wrong will learn their lesson. Then, maybe there will be better baseball in the East."

It was a sweet revenge for Connor and Wilkins's team, as they were defeated twice by Heinie's men at the same field two Sundays ago. Cannon Ball Dick Redding pitched the first game and allowed the white boys three hits, while Treadwell did even better in the dinner engagement by allowing only two hits. The Bacharachs just at present are showing superb form and will be hard to beat from now on."

June 11, 1920

Philadelphia, PA
"Court Decision Favors Bacharachs - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 11. - Judges Martin and Staake in court No. 5 last week rendered a decision that Dick Lundy, the little shortstop of the Bacharachs, can continue playing for his team until further orders from the court. The Hilldale Club brought suit for a preliminary injunction to stop Dick Lundy from playing with rival clubs. Altogether it is claimed Dick Lundy signed three contracts to play this year. Up to the present time the New York team has the better of the argument."

Philadelphia, PA
One Time Hilldale Wins - Court Grants Temporary Injunction Against Ball Player - Judge Stern, in Court of Common Pleas, Number 2, heard the equity suit of the Hilldale Baseball and Exhibition company against James "Hank" Deas, a proceeding to have James Deas, the former catcher of the Hilldale club, enjoined from playing with the Bacharach Giants, a rival Colored baseball club. It was complained that James Deas signed a contract on October 28 last to play with the Hilldale club for the season of 1920, beginning May 1, for six months, at $150 a month, but he is now playing with the Bacharach Giants in violation of his contract. Judge Stern handed down an opinion late in the afternoon granting a temporary injunction restraining James Deas until final hearing from playing with the Bacharach Giants or any other club, than the plaintiff. The Hilldale company is ordered to file a bond of $2,000 to secure the defendant against any damages caused by the issuance of the temporary injunction. Judge Stern say in his opinion he is unable to distinguish this case from the Lajole case. Although the facts did not warrant the finding that the defendant is as skillful, or as well-known a player as was Lajole, the doctrine laid down in the Lajole decision is not confined to the very few players who are stars of the first magnitude. In the case of Richard Lundy, Judge Martin refused a preliminary injunction, sought by the Hilldale club, and continued the case until final hearing."

The Bacharachs, when not playing, are keeping in practice, as it is their intention to take both games and, according to a statement given out recently by Joe Williams, he intends that his team shall take both games, so there you are. The games will really be for blood and the admission price alone to see Joe pitch against Dick Redding will be well worth whilte.

A demonstration took place when the umpire called play ball and the batteries of the opposing teams were announced that reminded one of the old Olympic Field days when Dick was the mainstay of the Royal Giants, who occasionally hooked up with Joe in the pitching duels.

Wilson, Bethlehem's little southpaw, for the first three innings, but in the fourth they got the range off Wilson's delivery and banged him all over the lot.

Philadelphia, PA
"House of David Nine at A's Park - Bewhiskered Ball Team Meets Bacharach Giants at Shibe Park Today - The barbers of Philadelphia have a great chance for revenge today. They can go out to Shibe Park this afternoon and root in their highest key for the Bacharach Giants. The reason for this is that this negro team from Atlantic City meets the greatest collection of whiskers ever seen in our well-known republic. The whiskers belong to the members of the House of David baseball team. These boys have never made the acquaintance of a barber, shears or a safety razor. They let their hay grow wild. They even coach it in its growing capers. Each one vies with the other to have the longest set of whiskers in the community. They are a religious sect from Benton Harbor, Michigan and clause A of Article I says: "Lay off barbers for life." Were it not for the fact that the House of David players are clean, sturdy and manly, they might be mistaken for the senior class of some Bolshevist prison. But those bewhiskered guys sure can play ball. Some of them would get trials in the big leagues were it not for the whiskers. They will make their first appearance on record in Philadelphia this afternoon, and will have their famous band along with them."

Philadelphia, PA
"Men With Whiskers Lose Ball Game - House of David Beaten by Bacharach Giants Before Big Crowd of Fans - The Bacharach Giants of Atlantic City defeated the House of David team of Benton Harbor, Michigan, in an exhibition game by 4 to 2 at Shibe Park. Old-time fans who were in the assemblage were reminded of the days back in the 70s when the original Atletics were wont to play with chin whiskers and flowing locks. The House of David players appeared on the field wearing various lengths of whiskers and all had long hair. Despite their uncouth appearance they played good ball and the Bacharachs had to stop some to win the game. All the Davids wore chin adornment with the exception of the battery, Brogan and Phelan. This pair was as hairless as a proverbial billiard ball and it was said that they were hired for the occasion as the David's best pitcher. Mooney was unable to toss them owing to a lame arm."

Philadelphia, PA
"Whiskers Lose in Bacharach Game - House of David Nine Defeated by Negro Team, 4 to 2, at Shibe Park - Twelve thousand fans refused to take a day off from baseball with both the Phils and A's idle, so they visited Shibe Park yesterday afternoon and witnessed a unique game of the national pastime between bewhiskered and gentlemen of color clubs. The bearded baseballians didn't win because the negro nine made twice as many runs, the House of David team being defeated by the Bacharach Giants, of Atlantic City, 4 to 2. Fleetness of foot was a more potent factor in the Bacharach conquest than any prowess with the bat. Six thefts were committed by the sunburnt tossers, who managed to populate the base paths on many occasions as a result of having worked Southpaw Brogan, the beardless pitcher of the bearded team, for free transportation on eight different occasions. Brogan in a member of the House of David battery, consisting of Brogan and Phelan. Neither of this duo is connected with any tribe of Israel, except in a financial way. Bacharach deposited the first run of the combat in the opening inning. One down, Oliver Marcell beat out a hit to the bearded Falkenstein. He promptly stole second. Dick Lundy followed with a walk. Oliver Marcelle was nailed trying to steal third. Dick Lundy going to second, from where he counted on a single to left that ran from the ash of Elias Brown. The curious tribe from Benton Harbor, Michigan, tied the figures in the fourth, Tally. He did. Mr. Tally started his tally with a single to starboard, Phelan's lawn sacrifice pushed him to second, Brogan's single to right, his second straight hit, tallied Tally. It was in the fifth that the Bacharachs clinched the verdict. Though they registered only one hit, they managed to put two runs over the plate. Dick Lundy lead off with a walk. Brown bunted, but Brogan elected to throw to second. His peg was too late, and both hands were safe. Both runners advanced when Brogan threw past second in an effort to get Dick Lundy napping. Bill Handy popped to Williams. Brogan threw out Bill Pierce, but Dick Lundy was wide awake and scored on the play. Lico Mederos walked. Elias Brown and Lico Mederos caught the House of David asleep, working the double steal, the former scoring. The enemies of the barber trust counted their second and what proved to be their final run in the seventh. Veiritz inaugurated this session with the healthiest hit of the pastiming, a triple to right. After H. Hannaford fanned, E. Hannisford brought home his bewhiskered boys with a single to right. In the Bacharach seventh another run was banked. Oliver Marcell's double, steal off third and an infield out manufactured this marker."
