Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-26-2011

AP via Spartanburg Herald, October 27, 1911:

Philadelphia, Oct. 26—Hail! Philadelphia Athletics, Champions of the world for the second successive year.

In an exhibition of batting seldom seen in a premier baseball series, the American league team this afternoon defeated New York in the sixth game of the set by the overwhelming score of 13 to 2…It was more than a mere defeat for the giants [sic], it was a rout.

...

When the game was over that part of the crowd which did not leave the ground before the game was ended remained and held a celebration.  They cheered the players, who had dived under the grand stand the instant the last man was out and gave three cheers for Connie Mack.

Hip hip hooray!

I've been busy at Designated Sitter recently. My latest piece focuses on three guys from the postwar era who had talents in baseball and other fields as well; Jim Brosnan, Chuck Connors, and Lee Maye. Someday, I'll reach critical mass. I was on a public access show a month ago. I'm trying to get radio interviews now.

Does anyone know if Matt Murton is coming back from Japan? He signed a two-year contract that just ended.

Does anyone know if Matt Murton is coming back from Japan? He signed a two-year contract that just ended.


Murton's comments as of last week:

About his time in Japan...

Regardless of what happens, the fact is, I had a great time in Japan. My wife and kids love Kobe and my feelings for the Tigers have not changed. Of course, if I end up returning next year, I'll be looking forward to it and will be excited about it. God will help show me the appropriate path to take.

About returning to the Majors...

There was a time when I thought there was a right way to do things. And then there were times when I thought the opposite was the right thing to do. Honestly, I have no idea what I want to do now. Up until now, there have also been times when the result ended up being the complete opposite of what I was thinking. I mean, during my first year in the Majors, the thought of me playing in Japan sometime in the future never crossed my mind. I'm sure the answer will come with time.

Today is the 15,000th "day-versary" of the last game in baseball's first stadium, Connie Mack Stadium (AKA Shibe Park). Game ended on a walk-off win with Tim McCarver scoring the last run. Then the fans rioted and looted.

Other events having their anniversary today: one of the happiest moments of White Sox Fan Brother's life, Jose Mesa can't close it out, Jack Buck will see you tomorrow night, Denkinger blows the call & St. Louis schatts their collective pants, Branch Rickey sells out, Joe Cronin fetches a record price for his father-in-law.

Lee Maye

Wow, there was no shortage of ego there:

"I feel that I am the best singing athlete that ever lived. I'm not bragging, it's just a fact"


Whatever you saye, Lee.

Game 6 postponed. Will Carpenter start Game 7?
