[Troy vs. Chicago 8/31/1880] While engaged in the turn-over line we are moved to suggest to Capt. Ferguson to put a stop to that absurd and time-wasting foolishness of the throwing of the ball by the catcher to the third-baseman and by him to the first-baseman while the catcher is coming forward to put on his mask. What time play is going on Chicago people want to see the ball handled for “business” only, and while in this city it would be no more than a graceful concession to the large and fine crowds for the Troys to stop that sort of nonsense.
