1909 WORLD SERIES LINGO--Just buy a subscription to www.paperofrecord.com,
click on THE SPORTING NEWS, and read over the 1909 World Series accounts.  The
magazine BASEBALL started about 1909, and in the first year or so contained an
article on baseball slang.  I think Paul Dickson's BASEBALL DICTIONARY
mentions the article in his bibliography.
