Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-10-2014

Washington Times, June 10, 1914:

By getting a safety in the game which Philadelphia won from Pittsburgh by 3 to 1, John Henry Wagner, the grand old man of baseball, registered his 3,000th base hit as a major league player. Wagner’s 3,000th bingle was for two bases, and it came in the ninth inning, and resulted in a run for the Pirates.
...
The [Philadelphia] crowd cheered with as much honest vim and delight as if the hit had been a homer made by Cravath, Luderus, or Magee, of the home club. And Wagner was as happy as a boy with a new toy.

Please don’t build a time machine, go back in time, and ruin the moment for those folks, but Retrosheet and BB-Ref show June 28 as the date Honus got his 3,000th hit.

And Wagner’s middle name was Peter. So there.

Makes you wonder if the reporter was familiar with John Henry Lloyd.

It would also be better if they had the right P. Reese playing shortstop.
   4. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: June 10, 2014 at 10:27 AM (#4722436)
Well, with Alburquerque on your team, you're bound to take at least a couple wrong turns.

Tony Cingrani started his career with 22 consecutive starts in which he allowed 5 or fewer hits, which was a rare feat. He has followed this up with 7 consecutive starts of allowing 6 or more hits.

Any idea what's in Joc Pederson's future? He's hitting well in AAA (it is the PCL, but even so, 327/437/615 is a good line), but he is so wildly blocked in LA. They already have $42M worth of left fielders (neither of whom are playing well, but you can't sit forty two million dollars on the bench), Ethier is playing well, and Puig is hitting baseballs like it's going out of style. Is he trade bait? Are they going to swallow a lot of the money due to Kemp/Crawford or Gonzalez and move one or more of them? Or is he just going to spend a really long time in AAA?

There's a scheduled day game today. That seems incredibly rare for a Tuesday.

I think the Dodgers will end up trading Ethier because he's the only one who teams would want. They'll platoon Pederson/Kemp in center and Crawford/Van Slyke in left when everyone is healthy.

You don't think anyone would want Puig? :)

Far too much trouble... but maybe if they threw in Either too, teams may be willing to consider.

Especially as it's the last documented incident of a Philadelphia crowd cheering with honest vim and delight for anyone doing anything.

Wow, RIP Bob Welch, dead at 57.

Bingle? Never heard that one before.

Bingle was common in old timey baseball but is a pretty archaic term.

The language in those old stories is something else. They still believed that Jupiter Pluvius was responsible for rain.

Sad news about Welch. Have a lot of memories of watching him pitch. Condolences to family, friends, fans. Always sobering when someone about my age dies suddenly.

The Game of 6/9/84 was a good one, featuring starters who got off to similar starts but had appearances differing in length by over 6 innings. More interestingly, it featured a complete freak of a walkoff play - to such an extent that it would not surprise me to learn that there hasn't been one like it since. (It wouldn't surprise me if there has either. I doubt this specific play is P-I searchable, but would be hugely curious to hear if anyone is aware of a more recent instance.)

The Game of 6/9/14 included five runs in the first inning, three runs in the ninth, and only one in the seven innings between. The three-run ninth featured a game-tying rally and a game-winning rally. And the road team reached the maximum possible number of outs between scoring runs in a nine-inning game.

Ahh, we were still using it on our softball team in the 80s ... but then we were nerds. Never used it to refer to anything but a single though.
