Piling on Phat Albert.
“Frank Thomas was a first-ballot HOFer, but in some respects he might be modestly underrated as a hitter. I suspect it’s because Thomas, like Pujols, endured an extended decline phase that began after his last truly great season (at age 32). But unlike Pujols, Thomas was actually a very good hitter deep into his 30s; Pujols (and the Angels) would kill for this kind of production.”

Arizona Republican, August 16, 1916:
Add that to the list of early MLB games I’d give a significant body part to be able to watch: Babe Ruth and Walter Johnson trading zeroes for 13 innings.
Also in the news 100 years ago today: A fan sues the St. Louis Browns for $15,000, claiming he was wrongly accused of stealing a ball that was batted into the stands.

Toledo News-Bee, July 5, 1916:
Man, the Red Sox must really be getting desperate if they’re thinking about using a pitcher in the outfield.

Pittsburgh Press, June 13, 1916:
Man, it’s too bad pitchers only make 38-40 starts per year. I guess we’ll never see what Ruth could do if he got 500 at bats. He could hit 15 or 20 home runs in a season!

The reports of Babe Ruth’s demise were often exaggerated.
