[Athletic vs. Independent of Bloomsburgh, Pa 8/21/1869] ...Tom Berry made a “home-run” [by] “blocking” the ball purposely in front of the home-base, and never stopping until he completed the circuit of the bases–a feat which the opposing nines thought impossible, especially as Tom is not, by any means, the fastest runner in the fraternity. Philadelphia Sunday Mercury March 3, 1872 [in a retrospective: this incident is not reported in PSM account of 8/29/69]
