Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-28-2015

Pittsburgh Press, October 28, 1915:

Christy Mathewson, probably the most famous baseball player in the history of the national pastime, and mainstay of the Giants for the past 11 years, may never don a uniform again. In a story published under his own signature today, the great pitcher says there is not much chance of the doctors ever getting his arm in shape again and it is very likely that he will accept the position offered him to coach the baseball team at Harvard.

Mathewson pitched again in 1916, but his arm was shot. He made 12 decent but unspectacular appearances for the ‘16 Giants, and was then traded to the Reds in July to serve as their new manager.
