Date Sunday, May 1, 1870

The Directors of the [Mutual] club have adopted the following practice-regulations for the professional nine: The rule is that three substitutes are first put to the bat against the nine, and when these have been put out, the three out-fielders are brought in, the “subs” taking the vacant positions; these put out, they are restored to their original places, and the basemen come to the bat, the subs taking their posts. Again, the pitcher, short stop, and catcher, have a turn at the bat, the subs a third time changing positions, becoming pitcher, short stop, and catcher. In this wise they have two hour’s practice, and there is no flinching from it. It will be seen that the men are in constant play, and never out of position.
