Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 3-26-2020

L’Anse [Michigan] Sentinel, March 26, 1920:

Backers of the Wichita Falls Club in the Texas League have a scheme that may be followed by other clubs if it pans out right. Because of shortage of hotel accommodations in the Texas boom town, the Wichita Falls people plan to build a hotel for home and visiting ball players in connection with their grandstand. There will be kitchenettes, indoor beds and everything for Mrs. Ball Player if she wants to make her home with hubby at the ball park.

Indoor beds! Now you’re talking!

All snark aside, though, this is a pretty solid idea.
