Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-1-2015

United Press via Toledo News-Bee, October 1, 1915:

Next Friday, in all probability, the Red Sox and Phillies will meet in the first game of the series that will decide the world’s championship.

Final decision as to the date and place of starting the annual derby will not be definitely settled until Saturday, when the national commission meets in New York.
By starting the series on the eighth, which is Friday, the magnates not only would be favoring fandom, but would be financially helping themselves.

Two games could thus be played in one city without a layoff and Sunday could be utilized for travelling to the other.

A World Series doubleheader? That would be bananas. (It didn’t happen, by the way.) Also, this seems like the sort of thing they maybe should have had figured out before October.

Royals magical 2014 postseason is leading to baby boom in Kansas City

Much has been written about the romance of a baseball game: The perfectly green grass like spring in bloom, the highly charged one-on-one battles between pitcher and batter, the foul lines like ley lines laid down by Eros himself.

For Royals fans, this has led to at least one hospital setting a record this July for most babies born in a month with 473—this coming exactly nine months after Royals’ magical World Series run. These newborns even carry reminders of Kansas City’s first postseason berth in 29 years with names like Finnegan (for recently traded Royals reliever Brandon Finnegan), Holland (for the closer Greg Holland) and Everly Royal.
