Clipping:A wet field dampens bounds
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, August 8, 1858|
[Unions of Morrisania vs. Adriatics of Newark 8/5/1858] The ground, in consequence of the rain of the day previous, was very soggy, and the ball did not average eighteen inches on the bound. It therefore required greater activity of the part of the fielders to catch the ball.
