The number of balls pitched in a game has been a subject of study to Professor Martin, of Louisville, and he is keeping a register. In one game Ramsey had a total of 135 balls, an average of 15 in each inning. Mullane pitched 141 balls, or an average of 17 5-8 each inning, the Louisvilles only going to bat in eight innings. His average for each man who went to the bat was 4 1-26 balls, while Ramsey's average was 3 15-16 [probably i.e. 4 1/26 and 3 15/16 respectively]. The work done by both pitchers was remarkable, however, as only one man was given his base on ball—that by Hecker. In an average game the number of balls pitched is over 200.
