[Baltimore vs. Mutual 7/24/1873] It was impossible for the Baltimores to win while the umpire was opposed. A series of wrong decisions occurred in the last inning, giving the Mutuals three runs when they should have gotten but one. The Mutuals would hit fouls, and the umpire would give bases on them, but the Baltimores were prevented from making the same kind of hits, as it was against the interests of the umpire. Such a charge as this may appear incredible, as the umpire is so well know, but it is, nevertheless, a fact.
