Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-15-2014

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, April 15, 1914:

A Brooklyn magistrate paroled “Jake” Daubert of the Brooklyn National League club in the Coney Island Police Court [yesterday], so that his team might not be deprived of the services of its captain and first baseman on the opening day of the championship season.

Daubert was in court on a summons to explain why he violated the Sunday law relating to baseball…The magistrate told Daubert he could play with the Brooklyns against Boston [yesterday], but to be in court again [today].

The Dodgers didn’t play on April 15-16, 1914, so there was plenty of time to scold Daubert. Jake took advantage of the adjournment to go 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored in a 8-2 Opening Day win over the eventual World Champion Braves.
