Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 11-20-2017

Boise Capital News, November 20, 1917:

Danny Shay will take the witness stand today and tell the story of his killing of Clarence Euell, negro waiter, in the hotel English cafe. Following Shay’s testimony, closing arguments will be made and the fate of the Milwaukee baseball manager will rest with the jury. Shay is expected to declare that he was forced to shoot in self-defense.

Forced to shoot in self defense because there wasn’t enough sugar in a bowl. Got it.

Years ago I researched game accounts of the 1910 A's/Cubs World Series, and according to one newspaper account Judge Landis caught a foul ball while seated in one of the box seats at West Side Park in Chicago. That would have been a decade before he became Commissioner.

Sounds like a show on the old DuMont network: Clarence Euell, Negro Waiter...! (Now you know why the DuMont network folded.)
