Travelling with a tail-end ball club is the poorest pastime in the world. I would rather ride in the first coach of a funeral procession.
Christy Mathewson (Pitching in a Pinch or, Baseball from the Inside)
When Mathewson arrived in the majors, most first class and many second class hotels would not host big league teams for fear that the players' behavior would offend other guests. The hotels that did admit ballplayers often made them eat in a separate dining room. Players were well known for pinching waitresses and wrecking furniture, and if they didn't like the steaks they were served, they would nail them to the restaurant's walls.
Philip Seib (The Player: Christy Mathewson, Baseball, and the American Century)
