Today in Tribe History: February 4, 1922
Joe Harris, formerly with the Cleveland Indians, is reinstated by Judge Landis because of his good World War I record. Harris had been on the ineligible list for having played with and against ineligible players in independent games. “His service in France, where he was gassed after bitter fighting, caused him to do things he might not have done,” says Judge Landis in reinstating him. Last December, Harris was traded by Cleveland along with “Tioga” George Burns and Elmer Smith to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for Stuffy McInnis.
