[Springfield vs. Atlantic 5/13/1879] The wind favored the pace of pitching, and it was pretty fast on both sides, but especially on the part of Corcoran, whose pitching was exceptionally good. As the striker faced him he would send ball after ball in the hottest kind of style, obliging Baker to stand back and let the fence do the stopping until a player reached a base, and then Baker faced the fast music pluckily.
