What is the experience that connects Christy Mathewson, unpire Red Ormsby, and HoF exec Larry MacPhail?

Mathewson and MacPhail both served in WWI - not sure about Ormsby.
Edit: Checked up on Ormsby - he was a WWI vet too.

You are on the right track, but there is more to it.

Mathewson and Ormsby were both victims of gas - don't know about MacPhail. Mathewson and MacPhail were both CPTs.

CPT = Captain
Did a little research on this - MacPhail was actually part of a covert operation to kidnap Kaiser Wilhelm II following the war from his exile in the Netherlands.
