[Harlem vs. Charter Oak 8/22/1860] We regret to add that this game was marked with some unpleasantness toward the close, growing out of mutual dissatisfaction at the mode of striking which each club adopted–namely: waiting until the previous striker had worked his way around to the third base. The Charter Oaks began this style of business, and the Harlem followed suit. It is not a kind of game, however, which any club of the character and standing of either of the contestants should countenance.
