Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-27-2020

Toledo News-Bee, May 27, 1920:

Pat Duncan pulled a prize stunt Wednesday. As a result the Reds lost to the Cards 10 to 8.

Cincinnati tied the score in the first of the eighth. The Cards came in in their half, and Stock tripled. Hornsby singled to left and the ball got away from Duncan. Instead of chasing it, Pat must have thought it was the last of the ninth, and dashed for the club house, thinking the game over.

They had to chase after Pat and call him back to finish the game.

I couldn’t believe this actually happened, but it sure seems like it did. From the BBRef play-by-play:STL Rogers Hornsby Hod Eller Single to LF; Stock Scores; Hornsby Scores/Adv on E7/No RBI

Single and a three-base error, presumably. As far as I know, there’s no code for “dude just ran off the field in the middle of the play.”
