Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 11-5-2012

New York Evening World, November 5, 1912:

Leading baseball men are of the opinion that within ten years it will be necessary to arrange a series of games or a tournament to decide the championship of the world with countries other than the United States included. They are paving the way for baseball in France, and already several veterans of the American game have been consulted in regard to visiting that country and teaching the young Frenchmen the fine points of the game.

Oh right, like a team from outside the United States would ever win the World Series.

The good news is that today's Birthday Team has a Hall of Famer in right field. The bad news is that he's in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There weren't any managers born on November 5, but I'd probably give the job to Neale. The guy coached friggin' Washington and Jefferson College to the Rose Bowl, so he seems to know what he's doing as a leader.

By the way, "Greasy Neil" would be an excellent handle on Football Think Factory.
