Clipping:John Morrill on the new pitching rule
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Wednesday, November 24, 1886|
[from an interview of Morrill by the Boston correspondent] Perhaps the changes will make the pitchers as a rule a little less effective for a while, but after some practice at the new style of standing they will do just about as well as ever. You see it is entirely different from the experiment they tried a year ago. Then you could not move the forward foot. Now it is simply that a pitcher must not move the rear foot, which only means that he cannot run up several steps before delivering the ball. He can take a step forward with his left foot, and they cal all get used to that.
