He quit the game eight years ago to practice law and served as Brown County district attorney. In recent years he has spent much of his spare time in officiating at football games.

We wanted to be doubly sure that any ball players we farmed out would be paid regularly. Kate Smith and her manager, Ted Collins, own and back the Long Island team and we know that on payday any boys we send down for seasoning will get their paychecks." Long Island plays in the American Association.
