Clipping:Asking the umpire for judgment

|Date||Saturday, August 30, 1890|
[from Chadwick's column, quoting the Philadelphia Times] In a recent game Latham made an attempt to bunt the ball. He put out his bat with that intention, but Umpire McQuaid did not see the motion and called “one ball.” At this Anson entered a protest. “What's that?” the big fellow remarked. “What do you mean, Mac? He struck at that ball.' McQuaid stepped forward and asked Latham if it was a strike or a ball. “It was a strike,” said Latham, and the crowd cheered him for his honorable course.
