2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Fantastic essay on Paul Waner... how many players have you come across from the Pre-WW II era that could be considered highly-functioning alcoholics, using booze as a 'PAD' (performance altering drug)?
(BL from Bozeman)
Thanks! Alcoholism was epidemic in baseball at least into the early 1960s, and it almost certainly hurt far more players than it helped. Probably the most famous example of a career destroyed by demon rum is that of Hack Wilson, but there are dozens and dozens more. The weird dichotomy is, and I was a bit uncomfortable telling some of the Waner/drinking stories because of this, that even though guys were killing themselves, this was often a source of fun, at least for baseball writers. You read a lot of stories about Bugs Raymond, the 1910s pitcher for the Giants who used to trade balls from the bullpen for beers, but John McGraw found him too often soused to be usable, cut him, and he had his head stomped in in a bar fight the next year. There's more of that then the "fun and successful drunk," but we hear a lot more about the latter. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)From Wiki about The Only Nolan, "It is said he was suspended twice during the 1878 season, once for visiting a whorehouse when he had told the team he was going to be visiting his brother. He was blacklisted from the league." Good stuff.
(rogerlamarque from Brooklyn)
These stories about the guys from the 19th century, before baseball had acquired any sense of professionalism at all, are always wonderful, although many of them reduce down to drinking problems when you really look at them. If you go back and look at the things that were written about Bugs Raymond, an early Giants pitcher, he was often portrayed as a character. "He was so eager to get a drink that he would trade the bullpen baseballs for beers through the outfield fence! Hee hee! What a card!" Then you realize that this cut short his career, that he was stomped to death in a bar fight... There's nothing funny about that. (Steven Goldman)
