Was the infield actually paid that much, or was it just an expression (à la "million dollar taste")? --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 16:03, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Certainly an expression. No way Connie Mack would pay that much. Basically an expression that they were worth that much. Rlendog (talk) 16:09, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
I think the point was that the article fails to explain why they were called that, and when, and by whom. And it's a good point. The article has quite a large number of citations, but doesn't claim to put the words "hundred thousand dollar infield" into any contemporary mouths, nor cite that claim. I've added the "by whom?" tag to encourage somebody to fix that. TypoBoy (talk) 03:31, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
