Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-24-2018

Toledo News-Bee, April 24, 1918:

A new swatting crown—the timely hitting championship—will be awarded in the American League this year.

Two new columns—“runners scored” and “chances offered”—have been added to official box scores.

In the first column the batter is to be credited with all runs scored as direct result of his hits, bases on balls, sacrifices, infield outs and being hit by pitched balls.

In the “chances offered” column, he is to be charged with the number of men on bases when he comes to bat. Each runner represents a man whom he has opportunity to put across.

Well done, old timey people.
