Creator: Louisville Herald
Date: 1915
These two Louisville Herald newspaper pages from June 20, 1915 give an account of the American Association baseball game contested the day before between the Louisville (KY) Colonels and the Cleveland Spiders.

Taylor played professional baseball for several years, starting with the Ellsworth, Kansas, minor league team in 1910. Between 1911 and 1914, he pitched in 27 major league games, including three games each with the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox, and the remainder with the St. Louis Browns. His major league record was 2-10, with an ERA of 4.10.
