[Hartford vs. Mutual 6/6/1874] Barlow now took the bat in hand, and, in his peculiar style, allowed the ball to drop from the bat just in front of him, and in such a way that it was almost impossible for the pitcher–the catcher was way back–to throw the ball to the first baseman without striking the base-runner, as he did, Barlow thereby earning his base.
