[Resolute vs. Athletic Philadelphia 7/28/1864] The arrangement for marking the boundary of the field was not as good as it might have been, the temporary rope fence being altogether too close to the foul ball lines. New York Clipper August 6, 1864

[Atlantic vs. Keystone 8/9/1864] In consequence of the pressure of the spectators annoying the scorers and reporters, and interfering with some of the players, we believe the officers of the Olympic and Athletic Clubs will provide ropes and stakes to mark the line beyond which spectators will not be allowed to encroach on the players. Philadelphia Inquirer August 10, 1864
