Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-4-2021

Toledo News-Bee, August 4, 1921:

The report that John Evers, manager of the Chicago National League team, has resigned and that Bill Killefer, veteran catcher, is to take his place, is current in baseball circles [in Chicago]. The report followed a meeting of the club directors.

Evers was not in uniform when the Cubs started a doubleheader with Boston yesterday, and Killefer was in charge of the team.

The report was neither confirmed nor denied by the club officials. President Veeck declared that Evers was ill.

Obviously too many fudge orgies and nicotine sprees. Anyway, Evers had indeed managed his final game with the Cubs at this point. It’s not every day you see a secret, unannounced managerial change that is neither confirmed nor denied.
