Description

The members of the Gymnast and Excelsior Clubs played for the first time under their new code of rules, which were much more stringent than the old rules. The corners, five in number, are sixty feet from the Batsman's goal to the first corner, so that the run for a score is 120 yards. A ball must be caught flying, and the catcher and giver are not permitted to throw a ball at a runner when they are not on their respective goals. A batsman is also required to run every time he strikes the ball.
