Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-28-2018

Toledo News-Bee, August 28, 1918:

Clark Griffith says he shipped to Palestine baseball equipment sufficient for four teams, on request of Americans of Jewish ancestry and others who are in service with the British forces in the Holy Land. Several hundred American Jews, specially enlisted, have joined the army in Palestine and they no sooner got there than the desire to play ball overcame them. Think of it, baseball in Jerusalem, and real American slang heard in the city streets.

There wasn’t a team in Jerusalem, but Israel had its own pro baseball league about a decade ago. That would have blown the minds of 1918 people.
