Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-8-2014

Rock Island Argus, September 8, 1914:

The relative positions of the Boston and New York National league teams underwent no change as a result of yesterday’s games at Fenway park. Boston won in the morning, 5 to 4, and New York in the afternoon, 10 to 1. The largest crowds ever recorded in Boston at two baseball games in a single day attended.

After Snodgrass was hit by a pitched ball during the sixth inning of the afternoon contest the crowd “jeered” when he went to center field. His contemptuous motion in response to this reception was followed by a volley of bottles from the bleachers in his direction.

The game was held up five or 10 minutes and during the demonstration Mayor Curley went to the field and demanded of a police lieutenant that Snodgrass be removed from the park. Neither the officer nor the umpires would comply.

After the September 7 doubleheader at Fenway, the Giants and Braves were both 68-53, tied for first place.
