¹ On January 1st, 1923, the Oorang Indians had a game scheduled with a Cuban All-Star team in Havana, Cuba. I’m still researching the game, but to this date I haven’t found any evidence that it actually occurred. Mary Gross, of the Marion County (OH) Historical Society, kindly took some time out of her day and researched the game. She didn’t find any evidence of the game either.
