"A match game was played Tuesday between the Nashville and Phoenix base ball clubs, which was witnessed by a large number of spectators, with but little satisfaction, however. Quite a discussion was held between the friends of both clubs. It was generally agreed that there was unfairness exhibited on the part of the umpire, Mr. Wm. Buck. The following items by a spectator will prove the above:

Mr. F. Gault of the “Phoenix” was on the first base, and endeavored to make the second–he passed the second, during which a “foul” was called; instead of returning to the second base and touching it, he crossed the diamond and reached the first base–thus violating the twenty-third section of the rules and regulations of the national association of base ball, which says: “Players running bases must tough them, and so far as possible, keep upon the direct line between them, and must touch them in the following order: First, second, third and home, and if returning must reverse this order; and should any player run three feet out of this line for the purpose of avoiding the ball in the hands of an adversary, he shall be declared out.” The umpire’s decision was “not out.”"

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
