How does a player born Charles Crabtree play under the name Tex McDonald? The Atlanta Constitution (Dick Jemison, 02/11/1916) ran the following story: Years ago when McDonald or Crabtree was playing in the Texas tall grass, he is said to have carried the handle Crabtree. "Tex," it seems, occassionally, as all ball players will do, dropped a fly ball or something of that sort, and it always hurt him when he did. Accordingly, "Tex" would get a little huffy and sulk around. The result was instantaneous. Fandom decided that "Tex" wasn't really only Crabtree - they agreed he was a crab. When the fans started calling him "Crab," "Tex" resented it, and, though his contract was good for the remainder of the year, some claim he hopped it, landed in the Western League, where he adopted the name McDonald. He has worn it ever since.
