Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-18-2015

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, September 18, 1915:

Umpire Rigler gave the double-header [between the Pirates and Giants] an unusual feature when he chased 19 New York players including Manager John McGraw to the club house for their actions following a disputed strike decision in the second game.
...
Grant flied out, and as he was passing Umpire Rigler on the way to the New York bench he made some remarks to the official. A few minutes later, Rigler halted the game and gave McGraw the sign to leave the field for the latter’s talk from the benches. As soon as their manager had departed the players on the bench started to shout at the umpire and they were all ordered off the field.

That’s gotta be some sort of record.
