This contract disposition form dated August 1, 1951, was used in a minor league baseball player transaction involving Topekan Ed Wilson. Under its terms, the contract rights to Wilson's services were assigned mid-season by the Paris (IL) Lakers of the Mississippi-Ohio Valley League to the Fulton (KY) Railroaders of the Kentucky-Illinois-Tennessee League. Wilson's minor league career spanned the period 1948-1953. Besides the Paris and Fulton clubs, he played for minor league teams in Miami (OK), Topeka, Iola, and Hannibal (MO). In the 150 minor league games for which his pitching statistics are available, he compiled a 56-32 record, with a 3.62 ERA. Digital reproduction of the form was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
