This deal occurred when the Federal League, a new baseball major league that started up in 1914 and folded for lack of fan support after the 1915 season. The new league had plenty of money and spent freely to sign star players from the National and American Leagues. The problem between the new league and the established major leagues had to be settled in the nation’s courts and the NL and AL had to pay a then huge sum of $$$ for this period in time ($385,000) to assume the players contracts. .


Now then, the eight team Federal League of 1915 consisted of teams from Chicago Whales, St. Louis Terriers, Pittsburgh Rebels, Kansas City Packers, New York , Buffalo Feds, Brooklyn Feds and Baltimore.


This deal or as classified as a trade saw the above Federal League players from the St. Louis Terriers being bought by the now defunct St. Louis Browns, who moved and are now the Baltimore Orioles.


Many of these baseball players proudly served in World War 2 when it started in 1917.
