Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-6-2016

Topeka State Journal, April 6, 1916:

[Eddie] Collins, by the way, not only is a great baseball player, but in his college days was “some pumpkins” on a football gridiron. And ‘tis said that even now when he is the idol of more human beings than any crowned monarch upon the face of Mother Earth solely because of his baseball ability, Collins considers football a greater sport than baseball.

Yeesh. If he was as good at football as he was at baseball, he was some pumpkins indeed.
