DAMN “YANKEES”: “I think that this nickname business in baseball has been overdone.”

Says Frank Chance, the new manager of whatever that baseball club in New York is called — variously, the New York Americans, or Highlanders, or Yankees, or Hilltops, or Hillmen, or Kilties.  According to the New-York Tribune, Chance doesn’t like any of them. “The nickname Highlanders, Yankees and the others are meaningless.  . . .  I hope the newspapers and the baseball public will call us the New Yorks in the future . . . .”
