Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-25-2016

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, August 25, 1916:

Manager Mathewson today announced that he had agreed to pitch his first game for the Reds at Chicago on September 4 when the opposing pitcher will be Miner [Mordecai] Brown for the Chicago Cubs.

It was the final major league game for two no-doubt, obvious Hall of Famers. Has there ever been a game in which two comparably great players played for the final time?
