[Athletic vs. Mutual 915/1874] McMullen, after trying to “hit to leg”–that is, hit a ball “fair,” and yet so it would rebound short to the foul-ball field–sent a sharp bounder to Matthews [pitcher], and, of course, was thrown out at first base. New York Clipper September 26, 1874

[Athletic vs. Mutual 915/1874] McLean [umpire] watched the fair-fouls so ably in this game that none of these hits were made which did not fairly give the strikers their base. New York Clipper September 26, 1874
