Title Larry's "Most Wanted No. 1 -- A Lingering Death for Old-Style Plugging?
Issue

Protoball Chronology Item 1837.1 reports that William Wheaton said that the plugging of base-runners had been outlawed in the late 1830s in New York. However, Henry Chadwick (item 1850s.24)reported that, nearly two decades later, some base ball clubs in Greater New York still retained the practice.

Do we have any other contemporary evidence that plugging was still found in base ball into the 1850s?
