Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 11-6-2015

Bridgeport Evening Farmer, November 6, 1915:

Miller James Huggins, manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, has passed up an opportunity to sign the greatest pitcher the world has ever known. All Huggins would have had to do to get this wonderful “phenom” is to buy 250 shares of mining stock from a Dubuque, Ia., lawyer, and the lawyer in turn would get the pitcher to sign a Cardinal contract.
...
The gentleman claims to have discovered a semi-pro pitcher who is so good that even the Feds have been after him.
...
Huggins is afraid that the pitcher would be worth more than the mining stock, and as Hug is not the kind of a person to take unfair advantage of a lawyer it is a leadpipe cinch that he won’t accept the Dubuque attorney’s proposition.

Miller Huggins: Wonderful little fellow.
