Kennesaw Mountain Landis

Kennesaw Mountain Landis

Kennesaw Landis was a United States Judge for the district of Northern Illinois but is mostly known as the 1st Commissioner of Professional Baseball and a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Landis was born in Millville, Oh in 1866. He was named Kennesaw Mountain Landis by his father Abraham. Landis father, Abraham served in the Union army during the Civil War and lost his leg in Kennesaw, Ga at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. When Landis was born, his father named him after the battle, Kennesaw Mountain Landis.

Landis would graduate from the University of Cincinnati and attend law school in Chicago. After graduated from law school, he was appointed to the Northern District of Illinois as a federal judge by President Theodore Roosevelt. Landis would serve 17 years on the bench. Landis was always scrutinized though for his latenight moonlighting, his drinking, and his many woman. Many judges asked for his resignation and he handed it to them in 1922, but Landis had already excepted another job 2 years earlier, the 1st Commissioner of Professional Baseball.

Landis was a huge baseball fan but the game that he loved was under scrutiny. It had gotten a bad reputation with gambling and the players doing whatever they wanted. This came after the famous Black Sox scandall of 1919. In 1919, the heavenly favorite Chicago White Sox would play the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series. @ men approached the White Sox and offered them money to throw the series. The White Sox lost 5 games to 2 and many people thought that they had been paid off. The 8 players were tried for throwing the series but were aquitted. The baseball owners so fans start to turn away and wanted to put 1 man in charge with cleaning up the game. Having many years in law, they choose Kennesaw Landis to be their 1st Commissioner.

When Landis accepted the job, many men thought he would come in, clean it up after a couple years, and then retired. He did the oppisite, cleaned it up and stayed for 25 years while ruling with an iron fist. First he said that there will be no gambling or crimes outside of baseball. Being from Chicago, he was a White Sox fan but reviewed the case of the 1919 White Sox and found that they accepted bribes. He banned all 8 of the players from baseball and the Hall of Fame, including Shoeless Joe Jackson which was proven that he did not take money. Landis would ban 21 players from baseball in his 25 years for gambling, throwing games, and activities outside baseball. The rules and regulations he wrote up are still in use today and is one of the reasons Pete Rose is still banned from baseball.

Many times during his tenure, many teams tried to segregate the game of baseball and bring blacks to there team. Many times, Landis denied them and would not allow a breaking of the color barrier. In the 1930's Bill Veeck was going to buy the Philadelphia Phillies franchise but Landis learned that Veeck intended on bringing a black player up. Landis stopped the deal from going through.

Landis died in 1944. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame a couple months after he died. Happy Chandler became the next commissioner. He would allow the Brooklyn Dodgers to sign Jackie Robinson and break the color barrier. Landis is buried in Oak Woods Cemetery in Chicago, Il.

I've felt that I've kind of plateaued in my rib smoking lately. Today, I took a new approach and learned that I've been using too much rub, and too much smoke wood in the past.

Thanks to Dittmer's of Mountain View, I've learned that the best ribs I've made so far come from:

1) Prepping the meat with a good rinse, pat dry, vinegar spritz, and a light rub coating rubbed hard into the meat. (I used a blend of paprika, and some homemade rub with salt/cayenne pepper/blackpepper/chile)

2) Smoke with Oak wood, not hickory. Apple wood works well, too.

3) Spritz with martinelli's apple juice every hour or so.

4) Low and slow - 225F for 6-8 hours. These ribs were so tender - bite one end of meat and pull, and the whole rib meat came clean off the bone, oh so effortlessly.

Mmmmm. Best commercial bbq ribs I've had thus far, was from the Salt Lick in driftwood, TX.

These ribs beat them, handily. My g/f agrees. :)
