Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 2-23-2016

Pittsburgh Press, February 23, 1916:

During the baseball season players in the Texas league will be insured against injury or disability as they will work under the workmen’s compensation law, according to an announcement made by the Texas State Industrial Accident Board. The magnates will contract with insurance companies operating under the supervision of the state board. During disability suffered while at work on the baseball field a player will receive 60 per cent of his salary.

I guess I’d never thought about this before. Having grown up in the late 20th century, I’m used to players being paid while injured and more generally, employees getting paid sick days. Makes me wonder how many players ruined their careers attempting to play through an injury so they could continue to get paid.
