A Unique Baseball Offer

Saturday, May 9, 1908

On this date in Rock Springs Park history, owner C.A. Smith and his partner, park manager J.H. Maxwell, come up with a "unique offer” to buy out their only competition - The East Liverpool Exhibition Company in order to take control of the Upper Ohio Valley's baseball business. The monies were raised by offering fans $4.00 a share in the Ohio and Pennsylvania (O&P) League payable in ten admission tickets to the games at Rock Springs Park. See the article at http://rockspringspark.blogspot.com/2011/08/unique-offer.html.
