Young America 2 (xxx) 21

(5 innings)

(PSOT (1): “By this it will be seen that the Young America Club was fairly beaten, and yet they refused to deliver the ball.”)

(PSOT (2): “Having seen in your issue dated the 23d inst., an article relative to the match between the Active and Young America Base Ball Clubs, wherein it is stated that after having been fairly beaten, the latter would not give up the ball, allow me to state, that although the Young Americas were beaten, still the Actives were not entitled to the ball, as, on account of the darkness, the umpire called time before the fifth inning was concluded. The Young Americas offered them the ball on the fourth inning, but they would not accept it, maintaining that five innings had been played, notwithstanding the umpire had given his decision to the contrary. Furthermore, the Young Americas played them without their regular catcher, thus giving their opponents an almost irreparable advantage over them.”)
