Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-18-2014

[New York] Evening World, August 18, 1914:

After yesterday’s accident it is likely that spectators will stop the very dangerous practice of throwing balls from the stand directly to the plate. Some one threw a ball from the stand during the latter part of the second game that struck Catcher Nunamaker on the head, while his back was turned, and knocked him senseless. The ball was thrown with great force too. It is believed that the shot was intended for Umpire Chill, who had the fans “on him” all afternoon.

Alas, fans still throw baseballs onto the field from time to time.
