Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 11-3-2016

Harrisburg Telegraph, November 3, 1916:

Federal Judge Landis is declared by a morning newspaper to-day to be the choice of several major league baseball magnates for chairman of the national commission in case that position should be vacated by August Herrmann. The attitude of Judge Landis on the subject, however, was not stated, the jurist apparently not having been advised that his name was to be brought into the list of possibilities for the position.

I had no idea people were positioning Landis to take over as early as 1916.
