"Pitchers Spike Hunter and Glen Darrough of Dallas have been sold to the Philadelphia Athletics for $20,000, a clear title to Pitcher Scott Perry and another satisfactory player to be selected next season. . . . Darrough is said to have cost the Steers the sum total of $10 in the fall of 1925. Ed Cobb, traveling secretary of the club, gave Darrough a trial with a Dallas amatuer team and later signed him to a [Dallas] Steer contract.
