Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-18-2017

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, October 18, 1917:

When Edward Barrow, president of the International League, was asked [yesterday] about the rumor that he was to succeed President Ban Johnson as head of the American League for the duration of the war. Mr. Barrow said he could not discuss the matter at this time. He admitted that Johnson, however, was contemplating joining the Army and was anxious to get a commission in the Quartermaster’s Department.

Barrow didn’t get the gig. Instead, he managed the Red Sox to the 1918 World Series title.
