[Chicago vs. Athletic 9/28/1874] Zettlein, when McMullin came to the bat, commenced his old trick of teasing that striker by refusing to pitch the ball for a few minutes, and then when McMullin growing tired of waiting would put down his bat, Zettlein would deliver the ball. This continued for about ten minutes much to the audibly-expressed disgust of almost every person on the ground, only terminated by McMullin going out at first base.
