Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 1-31-2019

Pittsburgh Press, January 31, 1919:

Happy Felsch will not play ball in Chicago this year unless he gets $1,700 back pay which he claims is due him, according to his best and closest local confidant, Jake Litza, manager of a team in the Lake Shore league.

Litza has been with Felsch on a hunting trip, and says he knows that Felsch will not come to Chicago unless he gets the money that he claims is due…“Happy claims this money is due him from the time he left the club until the last of the season,” said Litza.

Well, I see no way this could possibly end badly.
