Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-19-2019

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, September 19, 1919:

Schreiber, the recruit who has been playing third base while Groh is out of the lineup with an injured finger, refused to put on a uniform in the game with the Dodgers [yesterday], because he was not allotted a full share of the world’s series receipts. At a meeting of the Cincinnati players this morning, it was stated that every man on the team should have a full share except Duncan, Schreiber and See, who have been with the team only about a month. These three were voted half a share each.

With Groh injured and Schreiber having a tantrum, Sherry Magee made his one and only career appearance at third base. He had one assist, no putouts, and no errors.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hank Schreiber played his final game in a Reds uniform about a week later. His MLB career consisted of 36 games spread over five seasons, with a .198/.207/.253 batting line. The combination of not being able to hit and refusing to play tends to be difficult to overcome.
