Clipping:Outfielders tardy about trying for outfield assists

[Harvard vs. Atlantic 8/12/1870] One reform we notice Ferguson is trying to make in the outer-field, and that is a quick return of the ball when caught on the fly. A majority of fielders, when in luck, seem loath to give up the ball immediately, holding it so long that when they do throw it in, there is no chance to put a man out running home. Now yesterday, there were chances to do this, but the out field on both sides did not throw in on time, so the man got in, though one had a close shave. Rob should insist upon this point, as it is an important one.
