[from a letter from Harry Wright] There is one thing I would like to see the umpire do at the big games, and this, raise his hand when a man is out. You know what a noise there is always when any fine play is made on the bases, and it being impossible to hear the umpire, it is always some little time before the layer knows whether he is given out or not. It would very often save a great deal of bother and confusion.
