He had played baseball in Canton in 1923.  The article concerns him being signed to play

pro football for Akron, and mentions that he had played football for the Canton Bulldogs

earlier in the season, but had been released.  The Akron playing record at present is

listed under Edson Shaw.  This article would seem to indicate that it should be under

Ben Shaw instead.
