Dallas Eagles

The Eagles set a Texas League attendance record when they drew 53578 fans to their opener in the Cotton Bowl. The huge turnout was due in part to a brilliant promotion devised by Eagles owner Dick Burnett. An all-star old-timers team including Dizzy Dean Tris Speaker and Ty Cobb actually took the field wearing Eagles uniforms. After pitching to one batter Dean and the other greats left the field and were replaced by the real Eagles.
