Today in Phillies History for January 25th

It Happened Today in:

They promised Earl Neale $600 for the season, but sent him to Cincinnati before he was paid. His new team knew nothing of the original deal, and paid him only for his time with them. Neale appealed to Landis, who granted his request but also fined him $100 for the secret deal.
