[reporting the joint rules committee meeting 11/15/1885] The question of restricting the lavish use of balls during the game by delaying for a moment or so the order for a new ball was left to the discretion of the presidents of the League and Association, who will instruct their umpires accordingly. This action was taken because of the unnecessary haste made obligatory under the rules and which gave the umpire no option but to call for a new ball, even if he knew that in a few seconds the old one would be returned. Umpires will probably be instructed to use their discretion in ordering out new balls.
