Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 12-28-2012

Toledo News-Bee, December 28, 1912:

According to Tinker, while playing Brooklyn Evers narrowly escaped being beaned by one of Rucker’s fast ones.

“Gee, Nap nearly scattered Johnny’s brains all over the whole infield,” gasped Chance, who was on the bench.

“I wish he had,” remarked [Heinie] Zimmerman. “I would tear out there and get a handful for emergencies.”

Heinie Zimmerman: The greatest zombie ballplayer of all time.
