Clipping:The ill effects of cricket hitting
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, October 11, 1874|
Both the Athletic and Boston clubs have very good reason to regret the European trip, not only on account of want of pleasure on the trip, and pecuniary losses, but far more so on the damage done to their batting, especially by so much cricket playing, as to this is the loss of so many games plainly to be attributed. Those who notice their batting will see how apt the strikers are to indulge in cricket hits, which are very unsafe in base ball.
