(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “We noticed, however, a disposition on both sides to take the balls on the bound instead of the fly, several opportunities to make creditable catches being missed for the purpose of being sure and safe from the catch on the bound. We were in hopes that the excellent example afforded by the Stars, in this respect, would have been imitated by other Clubs; but it seems there are still a few players left who will indulge in the boys’ play, leaving the more manly style of play for their superiors.”)
