Machester, Ohio[edit]

I understand the compulsion for editors to want to link his birthplace of "Manchester, Ohio" with the city of Manchester, Ohio, but this is not the same place where he was born. His birthplace is a rural hamlet known by locals as Manchester. Linking this to the city, which is an entirely different place elsewhere in the state, would be an error. Thanks!

fielding?[edit]

This article states he was "one of the greatest fielding first basemen of all time." Nothing in the article backs this up. I am removing the claim until it is backed up. Kingturtle 23:43, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
