Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-1-2014

Chicago Eagle, August 1, 1914:

One of the luckiest home runs on record was registered at Newark recently when Deininger was given credit for one on a fly ball that was actually caught by an outfielder and held…Willie Zimmermann [sic] backed up against the low left field fence to take a drive from Deininger. As he froze onto the ball he fell over the fence. He held on to the ball though rendered unconscious, but the umpire couldn’t see it, and permitted the home run.

I imagine that would have precipitated one heck of an argument.
