[Atlantic vs. Eckford 6/23/1867] We noticed that the fools in the crowd didn’t see his [Powers, the Atlantics short stop] good judgment in running to home-base to take the ball from the pitcher on a called ball passing the catcher. It was a good point, without doubt. [The purpose of this was to cover a runner coming in from third base, as the practice early in the season was to call such a ball dead but allow base running]
