Some fun baseball stories for your Friday snowstorm

0 Comments

The Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states are going to experience snowpocalypse today.  To fight off the cabin fever, head on over to Seamheads, where Mike Lynch relays a bunch of fun baseball anecdotes from 1912-13 he came across while researching a book he’s writing.

My favorite: the one which ends with Hall of Famer Rube Marquard saying “That poor woman certainly proved to be a jinx. Her shrill shrieks affected me more than the cries of all the
fans inside the park.”

If you’re in the path of the storm, stay off the roads, drink something fun and read a bunch of baseball stuff today.
