Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-11-2014

Pittsburgh Press, June 11, 1914:

President Tener, of the National league, has advised all clubs to employ a megaphone man to announce the batteries and the changes in the line-up. This instruction is due to the practice of hooting at the umpire when making announcements, especially when the judge of play has incurred the displeasure of the bugs by giving a close decision against the home team. It is not a positive order, but clubs are urged to put an official announcer on their payrolls, with a voice and a megaphone big enough to overcome and drown the howls of the disturbers.

BOOOOOO!

More interesting stories than good ballplayers on the Birthday Team. That pitching staff won't stop anybody from scoring runs, but they're in good shape if a pickup football game breaks out.

Good double-play combo on today's Team.

The Game of 6/10/84 was about as good as you can ask for in a game in which one of the teams never holds a lead. Among its many features were a pitching appearance that lasted 0 plate appearances (and not in the illegal Bo Porter way), a game-tying rally in the ninth, and an inside-the-park homer as part of an extra-inning onslaught.

The Game of 6/10/14 was less a pitchers' duel and more a pitching staffs' duel, as lengthy extra-inning games tend to be these days anyway. It was decided by the one hitter who actually had a good performance; the identity of this hitter was much less surprising than it would have been before the season started.
