Date Saturday, July 8, 1876

[Harvard vs. Chelsea 7/7/1876] ...Hayes at the bat, when the latter hit a high ball, which Leeds tried to get under from short field, and Latham ran in to catch it from left field. A call was made for one of the players, but they neither of them heard it, and on the full run they came into collision, heads together, and both were knocked senseless. … The rule in all cases, where a ball falls outside of the infield and an outfielder is running in for it, is for the infielder running for the same ball to give way to the former unless a call is made, and that call should be promptly obeyed at once or a collision is sure.
