This Week in 1920s Baseball, Episode 9: “Bingles and Bungles”

Podsman Matt and Josh catch up on the standings this week in 1920 and find that a surprising team is leading the National League. They do a team profile of the Pittsburgh Pirates and also find a funny article called “Bingles and Bungles” published in the Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger on May 20, 1920. They also cover some off-the-field news from that week, looking at how the league is investing gambling rumors and also cracking down on the use of spitballs. Finally, they have fun with nicknames using the old-timey player generator.
