Date Sunday, April 17, 1887

[from the NL umpire instructions] In past seasons it has been the habit of certain pitchers, upon the ball being batted to an infielder, to cut across the first base path just in time to intercept and slow the base runn, under the pretense of backing up first. Umpires should keep an eye opn for this subterfuge and promptly check the practice.
