Clipping:Free admission for retrieving a foul ball 2
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Wednesday, April 14, 1886|
Usually, when a foul ball is knocked out in the street, whoever brings in the ball is allowed free admission. On April 2, in Washington, a ball went foul over the grand stand, and immediately the vast crowd began betting on the fact whether it would be brought in by a little negro or a white boy, when lo! the ball was brought in by a little girl. The crowd yelled themselves hoarse, and clamored for her to be put in the grand stand.
