Date Wednesday, August 3, 1887

When a base-runner tries to steal second on Greenwood and the catcher throws so high that the second baseman can't get it, the latter makes out he has got the ball by slapping his hands on the runner's back and asking for “judgment.” In the meantime the centre fielder has got the ball and returned it to the infield. This is called a “new” trick, whereas it is a very mouldy chestnut.
