Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 12-4-2017

Ogden Standard, December 4, 1917:

George Stallings, manager of the Boston Braves, attended the state fair in Macon, Ga., recently and carried off ten prizes with the Shorthorn cattle from his Haddock plantation. On the way home from the fair Stallings was arrested for speeding and was fined $25.

He must have been really mooving.

Today's starting pitcher pitched the first game at Yankee Stadium in 1923, and threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the renovated Yankee Stadium 53 years later.
