Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-15-2015

Pittsburgh Press, April 15, 1915:

[Columbus, Ohio] City employees will be permitted to see the opening game of the season at Neil park today without the loss of salary. City council Monday night, by a vote of 14 to 2, declared a half holiday for this afternoon, which will give all of Columbus’ employees a chance to get in the Hulswitt parade.

“Hulswitt” being Rudy Hulswitt, the manager of the Columbus Senators. This was about the only fun Columbus baseball fans had that year; the 1915 Sens went 54-91 and finished dead last.

Baseball and Fathers and Sons

I may be biased, as I am the current owner of this book, but I think every baseball fan will do well to read this inscription each spring.
