Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-28-2021

Toledo News-Bee, June 28, 1921:

Trial of the former members of the White Sox, under indictment for alleged throwing of the 1919 world series, was postponed [in Chicago] on Monday to Wednesday.
...
Buck Weaver sat alone and did not speak to the other players when he entered the courtroom. Jackson, Cicotte and Williams sat together. Risberg and Felsch were in another part of the room. Chick Gandil did not mingle with the others.

The trial was postponed for a couple of days because two non-player defendants were “ill”.

SP: Al Downing (21.0 WAR)

Al Downing has a name that sounds like he pitched 100 years before he did, and also led the league in both K and BB in 1964. Is that rare?

Ryan did that 6 times, Feller 4, and Sudden Sam 3--I'm sure there are others
