[Springfield vs. Atlantic 5/13/1879] The game opened with the Atlantics at the bat, and as Cramer–a left-handed striker–took up his position it was noteworthy how finely Ferguson placed his field for him. Smith [third baseman] stood at left-short, Ferguson [shortstop] covered second, Crane [second baseman] was deep right-short, and Latham [first baseman] covered first well back, while Cassidy [right field] was ready for a right-field assistance, Pike [center field] at right-centre, and Powers [left fielder] at left-centre. The moment a right-handed batsman took his place, the field was moved round to the regular positions to suit the probable hitting.
