Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 7-26-2011

AP, July 26, 1936:

In a riotous doubleheader that saw Umpire Bill Summers felled and injured by one of more than a hundred missiles hurled upon the field by enraged fans, the New York Yankees overpowered the Chicago White Sox twice today.

..

A pop bottle hurled by an unidentified fan in the upper grandstand back of third base, where Summers was stationed, hit him in the groin and he collapsed.

That could have been one of the great viral videos of all time.  Only thing that could have made it better is if Glockenbear had fallen on him afterwards.

And 49 years ago today, Gene Conley bolted the Red Sox bus in the middle of a New York traffic jam, went on a three-day bender, and tried (and failed) to buy a plane ticket to Israel.

When he reappeared, his excuse was that he had to find a bathroom. Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go.

I believe the Sox had their own bottling plant nestled somewhere in Comiskey Park. Incidents such as these are what probably led to drinks being poured into cups instead.

I believe it was Swing Music Demolition Night.

Anniversaries? That's old school. Now counting seconds - that's what all the cool kids are doing. It's the wave of the future. And as it happens, sometime today will be when fantasy baseball turns a billion seconds old.

For you traditionalists out there, then comes a list of items celebrating anniversaries, including:

- Pete Alexander dominates western Illinois

- old men stealing bases

- two late-era Ty Cobb achievements.

- Harry Heilman saving lives and beating Yanks

- Ed Linke uses his head.

- Babe Ruth's last hurrah

- Reds bottom out altogether

- two different guys homer in four straight at bats, years apart

- youngest MLB player to die

- Hank Aaron's greatest WPA HR

- greatest pitcher ever makes his MLB debut. And so does Jim Clancy.

- Schilling traded and loses his 100th game, not at the same time

- the Andruw Jones walk-off walk that no one remembers

Judge Landis was there, and ordered teh P.A. announcer to state a $5,000 reward would be given to whoever identified the bottle-thrower. The crowd jeered the announcement and no one picked up the reward.

Don't forget: Pumpsie Green left the bus with him.

Hey my dad identified Landis as the bottle-thrower and he never got a nickle.

That call in the Pirates - Braves game lat night is easily one of the 5 worst I've ever seen, including tee-ball, little league and drunken softball.
