|Date||Wednesday, July 11, 1888|
[Allentown vs. Easton 7/4/1888] Umpire Latham was assigned to officiate, but he failed to put in an appearance and the Easton management substituted a man named Parks, who claims to be an old ball player (possibly town ball), but who has no knowledge of the game as it is now played. At any rate, what Parks does not know about ball playing would fill a book.
