Herriman Saturday

May 24, 1909 -- Apparently the Portland manager was noted for using a little off-color language when things didn't go their way; however, since Portland had two PCL teams in 1909, I'm not sure if Herriman is referring to Pearl Casey of the Colts, or Walt McCredie of the Beavers (based on Herriman's take on the nose, I'm guessing probably the latter -- see the pic of McCredie at Wikipedia).


Here's a 1919 image with McCredie in profile; I think you're right. That conk is a dead giveaway.
