[Louisville vs. Cleveland 9/3/1888] One of the weak spots of the umpiring behind the pitcher system was shown up in the third inning when Cook plainly foul tipped out. But Mr. Ferguson called it a strike. Cleveland Plain Dealer September 4, 1888

[Baltimore vs. Cleveland 9/14/1888] In the eighth inning Snyder fouled out to O’Brien, but Doescher, who was back of the pitcher, did not hear the tip and declared it a strike in spite of the protests of the visitors. Cleveland Plain Dealer September 15, 1888
