Johnny Evers Newsbeat

[Liberty, Mississippi] Southern Herald, September 1, 1916:
Obviously, this is a result of all those fudge orgies and nicotine sprees.
I find reports like this fascinating; it seems like there may have been less of a stigma about anxiety and depression among athletes 100 years ago than there is today. I know Zack Greinke and Dontrelle Willis had anxiety issues that kept them sidelined at times, but IIRC those absences were made into a bigger deal than if they’d have turned their ankle or had a blister. They weren’t “oh, by the way” sorts of things.

Bridgeport Evening Farmer, August 5, 1916:
“Sorry I attacked our third baseman. I done goofed.”

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, July 26, 1916:
According to Dennis Snelling’s book Johnny Evers: A Baseball Life, Evers argued with the umpire after a called third strike, Zeider demanded that Evers be ejected, Evers walked towards Zeider menacingly with a bat, Zeider stomped on Evers’s toes, and Evers responded by whacking Zeider on the knee with a bat.
In the crowd that day was a young Moe Howard*, and the world of comedy would never be the same.
