Cleveland president Frank DeHaas Robison proposes that NL teams chip in to pay the 1896 salary of New York star Amos Rusie‚ who refused to play due to a contract dispute. Robison and other NL officials want to avoid Rusie's lawsuit‚ in which he seeks free agency. Although New York president Andrew Freeman vehemently opposes the NL plan‚ the $3‚000 payment is made and Rusie rejoins the Giants.
