Mid-winter base ball is the latest thing in Chicago, and Mid-winter Base Ball League, composed of the Farragut, Oakland, Carlton and Douglass clubs, having arranged a season to close Jan. 23. … Special rules have been made to govern the games, which are played in rinks, among them being straight arm pitching; runner not to leave his base until the ball is struck at or gone by the catcher; a batsman becomes a runner on three strikes not caught, or four unfair pitched balls, &c. Only rubber soled shoes are worn.
