Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-8-2015

Pittsburgh Press, May 8, 1915:

Arlie Latham, after being connected with the national pastime for thirty-odd years, has given up the sport…Arlie is keeping a delicatessen store.

Arlie’s place of business is in New York city. He declares that as a delicatessener he is batting only .106 at present, but that when he gets properly warmed up and learns how to shave 15 1/2 ounces of ham for a pound he will hit with the best of them in the delicatessen league.

If I learn that his slogan wasn’t “The Freshest Sandwiches on Earth”, I’ll be really disappointed.

Put a Milo Candini on him. (Dan Lee) Posted: May 08, 2015 at 09:22 AM | 15 comment(s)
