Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 1-11-2018

New York Tribune, January 11, 1918:

“Stuffy” McInnis, of the Philadelphia Americans, the last survivor of Connie Mack’s old champions, will be a member of the Boston Red Sox in 1918. The deal for his services was completed over the long distance telephone [yesterday].
...
[Red Sox] Manager Barry said…the deal for McInnis was held up because the Sox would not give up a player Connie Mack wanted, but that this angle was straightened out by telephone a few moments before the announcement of McInnis’s transfer was made.

This whole telephone thing might change the way baseball clubs are run!
