Date Saturday, September 2, 1876

At the Spring Convention of the Canada Association the rules adopted included sections which allowed strikes to be called only one every second fair ball delivered, and balls to be called on every second unfair ball sent in. Experience has shown that this rule gives too much latitude to batsmen, thereby increasing the batting scores. Recently, by a nearly unanimous vote of the Association, the rules were changed in this respect, so as to accord with the American code, thereby making one code govern the whole fraternity on the American continent.
