Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-11-2014

Toledo News-Bee, August 11, 1914:

SEMI-PRO FLINGER HAS GREAT RECORD

Rube Foster, the Christy Mathewson of colored baseball stars, has pitched 23 games for the American Giants, a colored semi-professional team, and won them all, according to the team’s official record. These games include contests with the Portland, Ore., and Spokane team of the Northwestern league.

And he’s only a semi-pro? Man, someone should really sign him.
