Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 3-24-2015

Pittsburgh Press, March 24, 1915:

The break has finally come, and it looks as if the Cincinnati club will have to release Manager [Buck] Herzog or accept the resignation of Secretary Harry Stephens. These two officials of the club had a big row at Covington…

The Reds’ training field in Covington, Louisiana was frozen and unplayable, so Herzog wanted the players in New Orleans, where the players could train. The problem was that the Reds were supposed to play an exhibition game against New Orleans in Covington, and the New Orleans owner refused to play the games in his own park.

Got it? Good. I don’t know why he wouldn’t want the games in his home stadium, but whatever.

This standoff was resolved when nothing happened. Neither Herzog nor Stephens resigned and the club decided to keep them both.

Put a Milo Candini on him. (Dan Lee) Posted: March 24, 2015 at 08:13 AM | 27 comment(s)
