[reporting on the rules changes] The rule requiring base runners to get back to their bases at the risk of being put out in the case of a foul ball was rescinded. This will destroy many a double play which had previously been made by quick throws of catcher to first basemen on foul tips, as players as a rule will stand a short distance from a base, and are not liable to hear all tips.
