[Tiger of New York vs. Peekskill 8/21/1890] [John L. Sullivan the stunt umpire] He seemed to be well up in the game, and when a man was put out in running to first base Sullivan moved his thumb over his shoulder to indicate that the man should get off the base. In not a single instance did any of the players attempt to question Umpire Sullivan's decision. New York World August 22, 1890

an English contract case

A case of very great interest to foot ball players in England and to ball players in America was decided yesterday in the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice. … Mr. Justice North,... dismissed the motion, with costs. He said there was no case that he knew of or had ever heard of which would be an authority for the Court restraining the defendant from playing for another club and the other defendants from employing him. He could not find that it would make the slightest difference (in a pecuniary point of view) to the persons who were suing whether Campbell played or did not play for them, and he should decline to make such an order as he was asked to make.
