Tener would play for a few teams from 1885 to 1890 and would go on to become Governor of Pennsylvania. While he was Governor he spoke out about gambling in baseball. In 1913, Philadelphia Phillies owner William Baker proposed offering the position of National League president to Tener after the owners declined to extend the contract of president Thomas Lynch. Tener accepted the offer at a contract of $25,000 per year but was not paid until April 1915 when his term as Governor expired The letter is on The National League of Professional Base Ball Clubs New York, N.Y.vand dated April 8, 1915.
