    I don't know why people complain about advertising in ballparks ruining everything...back in the day that's how it always was.

    Well, the fences were wooden, easy to paint and paint over. But, it would absolutely ruin the brick and ivy of Wrigley Field. Those stupid advertising signs behind home plate are enough.

    The wonderful Matty simply could not tolerate being on the same field, let alone the same Detroit team, as the great Ty Cobb. Detroit was finally able to deal him to the ChiSox in 1911.

    Matthew Martin McIntyre (1880-1920) played for Chicago in 1911 and 1912. He had played for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1901, and for the Detroit Tigers from 1904 through 1910. He got kicked down to the minors for 1902 and 1903, playing for Newark and Buffalo, respectively.

    Here he is at the Baseball Biography Project.
