Creamer never named the three players

I'd be very curious to know what source states that Creamer implicated Christy Mathewson.

Garry Herrmann, president of baseball's National Commission at the time, reported that Creamer said he was representing 3 Giants. In the official minutes they attepted to redact the names by blacking them out with ink, but the names were still clearly visible - "McGraw, Bresnahan, and Matty".

I read about it in a book called 1908. But the evidence is the "Minutes of the Annual Meeting of the National League, February 1909" - page 169 is the page with blacked out names still visible. Currently on display at the National Hall of Fame Library.

Thanks. ;-D

Do you remember what the book on 1908 was? That's something I'd be interested in reading.
