Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 3-31-2016

Pittsburgh Press, March 31, 1916:

Strawberry shortcake was blamed by Manager Tinker of the Cubs for the many defeats handed to the team, according to statements he made [at New Orleans] today. Tinker says the chef at the training camp told that Cubs were eating double orders of the pastry. “Next year it will be tabooed,” said Tinker.

Yeah, well, it figures that Johnny Evers’s mortal enemy would be opposed to the ingestion of junk food.

100 years ago today in saddled burro news, Pat’s Corral in Phoenix has both burros and saddles for sale.
