In San Francisco, Cubs owner William Wrigley says that Commissioner Landis should reinstate Jimmy O’Connell, who was banned from organized baseball for allegedly trying to bribe another player to throw a game in 1924. Wrigley says that O’Connell’s assertion that he was approached by Phillies shortstop Heinie Sands at the behest of Giants’ coach Cozy Dolan was a “crude joke” on the part of Dolan, and nothing more. Landis does not change his mind.
