[Harvard vs. Forest City of Cleveland 7/15/1870] [Arthur] Allison had his split hand put up artistically in a glove that must have cost some one a day’s work to contrive. Cleveland Leader July 16, 1870

defining earned runs

There seems to be a great deal of misunderstanding among the ball-tossers in regard to what is meant by runs earned, and they cannot see how it is made out that when a large score is made the runs earned are often very small. In the excitement of the play, little errors, or perhaps only one, will give their opponents quite a number of runs; as for instance, in the ninth inning of Tuesday's match, Zettlein made his base, Hall hit to Hatfield, Johnnie throwing to Swandell, putting Zett out, but threw wildly to E. Mills, letting George get his base. Pike hit a hot one to E. Mills, but Ev. muffed, thus showing they did not deserve a run, although they tallied five before another chance was given. We give this explanation as some of the boys cannot find out how they won by a scratch. Brooklyn Eagle July 2, 1870
