Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-5-2014

The [Honolulu] Hawaiian Gazette, May 5, 1914:

Sherwood Magee of the Phillies is toting around a black eye and cut lip as the result of a scrap with Pitcher Marshall the day before the opening game. Magee addressed a remark to Marshall which the hurler resented and a fist fight followed. Other members of the club separated the pair, and later, it is said, the difference was patched up.

Ways to quickly end your major league career: 1. Perform poorly. 2. Punch a star teammate in the face.

Rube Marshall did ‘em both.
