Semiprofessional baseball was a classification more telling of individual players than of teams.  Often, semipro teams were operated by local businesses and comprised of recruited players.  In certain cases, players were employees or owners of a business but were most often exceptional athletes paid to advertise on the field with branded uniforms. The Hermanns, sponsored by Jake Hermann’s Clothing Store, owned by the son of M.D. Hermann. M.D. was a member of the Commercial Club who brought his talents to Fresno in 1884 and established Hermann the Great’s Tailor Shop.
