BROOKLYN TIP TOPS 1915
It was only two years after the Brooklyn Dodgers abandoned Washington Park for Ebbets Field that the Federal League set up business there as the Tip Tops. The name came from the teamís owner Robert Ward who had a bakery producing the two marvels of white bread, Tip Top and Wonder, both of which made my old dad rage about the food I ate and were rumored to cause dough balls which killed birds. On the field the Tip Tops Ed Lafitte threw the only no-hitter in Federal League history and had the league lasted just one more year the team had announced plans to play the first night games in 1916.
