Clipping:The regulation ball
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, December 17, 1876|
A uniform and lively ball will be used in 1877; that is, a ball of regulation size, containing one ounce of vulcanized rubber and double covered. Each ball is to be placed in a box and sealed. The secretary of the League is to inspect the balls and to affix a seal, which is not to be broken except by the umpire just before a game is played. The balls are to be purchased through the League secretary.
