Date Sunday, April 10, 1881

The two [Chicago] pitchers, Corcoran and Goldsmith, are industriously engaged in acquiring the fifty-foot range, and it is already apparent that harder work will be required of a pitcher this year to maintain his effectiveness at the added distance than ever before. It is noticeable, especially in the case of Goldsmith, that in the effort to give the ball greater speed to carry it the full distance an unusual proportion of wild pitching occurs, though this will, of course, be in a great measure corrected by practice.
