This is a minor league baseball contract offered in 1923 to Adrian (Ad) Lindsey by the Salina Millers, a team in the Class C Southwestern League. Lindsey was on the Salina roster in 1922, but records indicate he played in Montreal during the 1923 season. A native of Oklahoma, Ad Lindsey moved to Kansas in his youth and was a multi-sport athlete at the University of Kansas, lettering in football, basketball, and baseball. He played minor league baseball not only in Salina and Montreal, but also in Bartlesville and Wilkes-Barre. During WWI, he was a teammate of Grover Cleveland Alexander on the 342d Field Artillery baseball team (see Kansas Memory Item Number 225688). Lindsey, however, is better known as a football player and coach. He captained the KU football team in 1916 and was twice named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference team. At the close of WWI, he was a member of the Eighty-Ninth Division football team that won the American Expeditionary Forces championship. Lindsey would later become the head football coach at KU (1932-38), after serving in a similar capacity at Bethany College (1922-26), and the University of Oklahoma (1927-31).

Date: January 19, 1923
