Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 2-2-2016

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, February 2, 1916:

Wagner and Lajoie are starting their twentieth big league campaigns. Did it ever occur to you they were batting over .300 in the Big Show before—

1. The Colonel, or T.R., was drafted from the minors?
2. Before W.J. Bryan had run for president but once?
3. Before the Spanish-American War was even thought of?
4. Before President Wilson had gotten used to his job as president of Princeton?
...
9. Before Ty Cobb reached the fourth grade at the public school?

...before Julio Franco played his first professional game?

In other news, the National League celebrated its 40th birthday on February 2, 1916.
