Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-8-2017

Butte Daily Post, June 8, 1917:

Will Al Mamaux eat himself out of baseball?
...
He does not drink nor does he ordinarily keep late hours. But Mamaux eats anything any time and uses no judgment in his selection of the food. He is just as likely to make a night of lobster and ice cream as not and he eats much candy and rich foods which threaten to ruin his digestive organs.
...
If Mamaux eats himself out of baseball he will be following the example of Elmer Flick who ruined his stomach by heavy eating and was forced to give up what might have been a promising baseball career. Flick would eat a heavy meal before going out to play baseball. Most ball players eat only a little soup or a bowl of milk.

A bowl of milk? What are they, cats?

Also, Flick’s “might have been promising” career landed him in the Hall of Fame.
