Former Lakota Manager Ernie Kent Dies - 8/18/1912

Though not directly involved in the 1897 Red River Valley League, Ernie Kent was a prominent name in local baseball in the 1890s. The league and Kent's Lakota club crossed paths on July 13, 1897 when the Grand Forks Senators defeated Lakota 11-1 in an exhibition game. Kent also managed Fargo catcher Jack Ryan in 1897, for which he deserves our sympathy.
