The July 7, 1901 Minneapolis Tribune reports rumors of other cities trying to coax President Beall and his team from Minneapolis.  Beall had moved the team from Sioux City to Minneapolis after the 1900 season.  Attendance in Minneapolis has been disappointing, and Sioux City was trying to get the team back.

Minneapolis refuses to count the July 14 game as a forfeit loss unless the president Thomas J. Hickey of the Western League declares otherwise.  Millers president Beall says when the game was forfeited, the fans were ready to riot.  As a result, umpire Sandy McDermott allowed them to remain and play the rest of the game, but not as a forfeit.  According to Beall, Des Moines president Chase agreed to let the players stay in the game, but Chase later reconsidered and claimed a forfeit victory.

Denver had several arguments with umpire Tyndall as the Millers took a 2-1 lead in the top of the 13th.  With two on for the Millers, Jack McConnell hit a drive to deep center.  Both runners scored and McConnell rounded third and headed for home.  Denver shortstop Radcliffe, rather than trying to relay the outfield throw to the plate to try and get McConnell, tried to heave the ball over the grandstand.  McConnell had a home run to make the score 5-1, and Tyndall then stopped the game and declared a forfeit win for Minneapolis.
