Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-4-2015

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, September 4, 1915:

PEORIA YOUNGSTER PITCHES 34 INNINGS IN DUAL BILL

Walter Breymeier, aged 18, pitcher for the Proctor Recreation Centers, a semi-professional team, [yesterday] pitcher 34 innings in a double-header against Keifer’s Colts, another semi-professional team. The first game was called at the end of the eleventh inning, with the score 0 to 0, while he won the afternoon game for his team, 5 to 4, with a single in the twenty-third inning. It took three hours and 30 minutes to complete the second game.

I don’t see anyone named Breymeier on BB-Ref, so he probably never played professional ball. It’s anybody’s guess how his arm responded to 34 innings in one day.

And it took more than three hours to play a baseball game? That’s just lunacy, even if it did last 23 innings.
