[Mutual vs. Atlantic 8/12/1867] Galvin... now called for the judgment of the Umpire on the baulking of Peters; he was the first to discover this baulking, and it was an unlucky discovery for the Mutuals, as not less than six men got their bases on these baulks. This again caused considerable murmur by the Mutual adherents, who commenced to cry “baulks” and “put up another Umpire.” But as Georgie Flaney [sic] is not one to be overawed by the crowd he stuck closely to the rules, the cries of the crowd notwithstanding. The players were satisfied with decision and that was enough.
