M. H. Sexton, president of the
National Association of Professional
Baseball Leagues, today gave out a
statement upon the Three-Eye con
troversy in which he warned the
magnates that some decisive action
would be expected at the meeting at
Chicago Wednesday, declaring if '
nothing were done by April 1 to in
sure baseball for the circuit tha:
he would take the matter up with
the national board of arbitration ,
with a view of having the league dis- j
band for the good of baseball and
the protection of the players. !
Mr. Sexton further suggested that)
