"These, plus a fine of $100 assessed against Jack Cummings for being absent without leave for ten days—during which I had no idea where he was and could not even notify him of his transfer to the Braves—constitutes the total fines I have ordered." He also states that he hasn't even been in the clubhouse since July 18th.
