Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 2-22-2013

Toledo News-Bee, February 22, 1913:

Jack Lewis, the St. Paul and Milwaukee utility infielder, thinks the girls have a lot to do with the failure of young ball players in the national game:

“The players get away from home and they think they must get acquainted with every girl that looks at them and the result is they are paying more attention to them than to the game of baseball…I have seen youngsters, and not always the youngsters, either, sit on the bench and look as though they have a great load on their minds, thinking of girls. I have seen them warming up on the field, and watching the stands all the time, looking for girls. It’s girls all the time with them.”

Girls. All they really want is girls. And in the morning, it’s girls. ‘Cause in the evening, it’s girls.

The website of LA's former PBS station has a weekly Southern California history series. Today's is about when spring training was held around LA. It includes a picture of probably the best day in Hank Majeski's life.

White Sox get 3B Conor Gillesipie from the Giants for P Jeff Soptic. Soptic is a hard throwing rightie, has trouble with command - he pitched community college near me.

I have seen them warming up on the field, and watching the stands all the time, looking for girls.

At least they weren't passing them their phone number.

Russ Martin pulls out of the WBC, as he won't be allowed to play short.
