Clipping:The Enquirer's scoring system
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, April 4, 1880|
The Enquirer serves notice that it will not use the “chances offered” or “c.o.” column in its scores of League games this summer, but will retain the old “error” column. We do this not on account of a whim, but because we believe the old style is more easily understood. According to the new style the put-outs and assists have to be added the and sum subtracted from the chances offered before one can discover how many errors have been made; whereas, under the good old system every thing is designated in its respective column, and a glance tells all. If any body wants to know how many chances were offered he can easily do it by adding up the put-outs, assists and errors, and he has it.
