(New York Clipper: “We have to speak of a little occurrence that was not as creditable to the party concerned as it might have been.  It appears that in the 8 th innings, McGrath, of the Gotham, had severely injured his thumb, so much sothat he was unable to grasp the bat without suffering.  In this condition he was forced to take his stand at the bat in the 9th innings, in consequence of the captain of the Mutual nine refusing to let another strike in his place.  Rule 27 allows of a change in such a case, and the 31st rule which says that no change of players shall be made except by consent of both parties, also states “unless as provided in rule 27.”  Thus there was no necessity of asking consent in this case except from courtesy.”)
