Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-21-2015

Grand Forks Daily Herald, September 21, 1915:

An interesting question for baseball fans to discuss during their leisure moments away from the ball grounds is the reason for the failure—almost absolute—of two brothers attaining success on the diamond at the same time. This condition is true of the majority of sports competitions, and only a few cases can be cited where brothers attained success together.

I imagine this is because it’s really, really hard to succeed in a professional sport. Anyway, there were a couple of preschoolers (Giuseppe and Vincent) living in Northern California in 1915 who eventually made a pretty solid sibling combo. Their yet-to-be-born little brother Dominic was pretty good too.
