[Boston vs. Athletic 5/27/1875] [The score reverting to a tie at the end of eight when the crowd took over the ground in the ninth inning] There was one thing which has been customary here and elsewhere, which this game shows the necessity of dispensing with. We allude to the custom of throwing open the gates on the ninth inning, and admitting the outside crowd, for it was this element that served to help the decision of a draw game. This is a matter that can be remedied and should be attended to hereafter.
