Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-10-2012

New York Evening World, October 10, 1912:

GIANTS WIN THIRD

The Giants won the second [sic] game of the World’s series from the Red Sox by a score of 2 to 1. It was by far the most spectacular fight of the series and when the Giants finally stopped an exciting Boston rally, 30,000 fans were almost on the point of heart disease.

The victory really should go to the credit of Josh Devore, who in the last half of the ninth, with two on bases and two out, started like a deer aftter a smash from Cady‘s bat and with his back to the wall caught it over his head.

[foreshadowing]This series can’t possibly get more exciting, can it?[/foreshadowing]

A weird concentration of modern stars on today's Birthday Team. This is an excellent roster: averageish pitching and a huge pile of big bats.

I had never heard of John Stone (clever nickname "Rocky"). 5000 PAs @ 116 OPS+ corner OF. Had > 125 OPS+ over ages 28-31, had 244 PAs @86 OPS+ and then done in 1938. Anybody know? Wikipedia didn't have any insight.

Stone came down with tuberculosis in 1938 and never played again after that.

Thanks, vortex. Baseball is full of "that's a shame" stories.

Really glad to see the quality of food in ballparks was similar 100 years ago.

"[H]eart disease"? That seems to be odd phrasing. Heart attack, yes, but disease?
