Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-28-2021

Pittsburgh Press, May 28, 1921:

IS ALEXANDER ABOUT THROUGH?

Some baseball critics are of the opinion that Grover Cleveland Alexander, the Cubs’ veteran star hurler, is about at the end of his rope. He has got off to a poor start this spring, in sharp contrast to last season, when he won 10 straight games in the spring.

Narrator: “He was not.”
