The violation of the batting [sic] rule Mullane is guilty of, according to Western reports, consists in a short hop with the backward foot before delivering the ball. He first raises the foremost foot, which the rules allow, but an instant later, and before permitting the ball to leave his hand, he makes the skip with the rear foot, which is clearly illegal. This gave him an opportunity to command immense speed.
