Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-11-2012

[Columbia, MO] University Missourian, April 11, 1912:

A game replete with sensational twirling, hard hitting and clever fielding between the Stephensville Stars and Christianburg Cubs yesterday came to an end in the third inning when Catcher Hamper of the Stars, nettled by what she considered an unfair decision of the specially imported umpire, tore off his long whiskers. These proved to be false and when the Stars recognized in the Umps the personage of Papa Moss, an avowed Cub supporter, a wild scene ensued. Long pent up feelings were given voice, enough hair was disconnected from its moorings to start a mattress factory, and unuttered oaths filled the air.

Hey!  It’s Enrico Palazzo!

Today is also the 50th anniversary of the Mets first game. Of course they lost the game.

Four guys who played for the Mets that day later became managers - three of whom would each manage over 1,000 games in their respective dugout careers. Can you name any of them? You can click on the link above for the answers (the answers are in the third-to-last paragraph before the day-versaries section).

And he would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for you meddling kids!

Man, I cannot believe they got (most of) the A's / Royals game in last night.
It was just p!ssing rain the whole time over here in SF; I was so sure it'd be cancelled I didn't even check the game on TV.

The A's just won a game in the 12th (after giving up a run in the top half) on a ROE, two walks, and two hit by pitches. Looks like we win the cripple fight 2 games to 1.
