Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-29-2020

Perth Amboy Evening News, May 29, 1920:

There is a funny little streak of human nature cropping out around the ball parks this year. It’s the stealing of baseballs for souvenirs…Fellows, who, in the ordinary grind of life, are too “New England” honest to take a single thing that doesn’t belong to them, pocket baseballs with enthusiasm at a ball game.

So many balls are being lost this year that managers are actually worrying over the expense of the thing as well as the nuisance of trying to have a supply on hand to keep the game going.

If they had a time machine and watched Brandon Belt’s 16 foul ball, 21-pitch at-bat, all the souvenirs would have melted their brains.

Rays prospect Garrett Whitley hit in face by foul ball, taken to hospital

SARASOTA — Rays minor-league outfielder Garrett Whitley was hit under the right eye by a foul ball during Monday’s game and taken to a Sarasota hospital with a facial injury.

Whitley was sitting on the bench in the Rays dugout when he was struck by a ball hit sharply by Baltimore’s Renato Nunez. It bounced through the opening between two screens in front of the dugout in the fourth inning of the 3-3 tie.

Manager Kevin Cash said Whitley, 22, did not lose consciousness and was not bleeding extensively, both good signs. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays and/or scans, then later discharged and said to be resting at home. The Rays expect to have an update on Tuesday.

“That was pretty scary,” Cash said. “From the initial test and exams, he was coherent, his eyes were moving fine. He’s going to have a pretty good welt. ... The only blood that I saw was a little bit out of his nose, and then almost like the seam of the baseball split him just a little bit (under the eye), not like a gash.”
