The World's Craziest Cult

The House of David was a Jewish (?) cult formed in 1903 in Michigan. They were your standard apocalyptic cult: no meat, shaving, haircuts, or sex. Of course, their dear leader got in some personal troubles, the cult went downhill (there's still a few dozen left), etc etc. Oh, and they played baseball. Well. They fielded several semipro teams that toured the country playing exhibition games. Satchel Paige even played for them once - in disguise.
