|Date||Saturday, August 22, 1868|
[Keystone vs. Eckford 8/21/1868] Mr. Smith, as umpire, was as impartial in his judgments as a man could be, but he seemed top have a decided objection to bear down heavily with the rules on the pitchers and batters, and to that fact may be attributed the extraordinary length [3:35] of the game.
