|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Thursday, September 5, 1867|
1. A match game is being played, and the sides are changing; the centre fielder does not start for his position in the field until the pitcher delivers a ball which is struck foul and caught by the centre fielder. Is this man out or not, and why?–He was out, as there is no restriction as to where the fielders shall play. 2. Can a captain place on of the fielders behind the line of the home base for the purpose of catching foul balls?–Yes.
