Date Saturday, May 25, 1867

[Eurekas vs. Irvingtons 5/16/1867] Of course, in regard to the amended rules, there was the usual amount of objections interposed, such as “getting the game down to too fine a point;” “I vote to have a better Committee of Rules next year;” “Who ever heard of such an absurd as as that,” &c. Just the same silly talk was heard when the fly game succeeded the bound rule, and also when calling balls was first introduced.
