(Putnam of Williamsburgh vs. Excelsior of South Brooklyn 11/1/1856) In important improvement in the fielding of this match, was shown by several fine catches made on the fly, instead of the child’s play “from the bound.”  This reform is not only more manly, but adds very much to the quickness of perception, and nerve and determination, which makes up the necessary qualifications of a complete fieldsman, either at Base Ball or Cricket.
