Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 7-16-2013

Pittsburgh Press, July 16, 1913:

George Boylan of [Jersey City]...charged with stealing his father’s watch, told judge Charles F. O’Brien, a knowing baseball fan, that he played shortstop on the Montreal International league club. The judge then named the only shortstops who have played for Montreal this year. Boylan got 30 days.

A very early version of “Do you know who I am?”, apparently.

Methinks the manager of today's Birthday Team is going to be polishing up his arsenal of F-bombs, because this isn't going to go well.
