Claude Rossman Newsbeat

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-14-2014

Kenna [New Mexico] Record, August 14, 1914:

Claude Rossman, once a Nap, once a Tiger and now a Miller in the American association, won a game the other day for Minneapolis in the American association.

Claude won it in the third inning of a contest with Cleveland and the winning was sweet because—

“Hey, you big boob, back to the Old Soldiers’ home.”
“Whenja see Elmer Flick last?”
“You’as a good hitter back in 1906,” were only a part—a very small part—of the remarks flung at him…

And the people heckling him on that summer day in 1914? Julio Franco and Jamie Moyer.

Now you know…the rest of the story.
