Philadelphia Base Ball, old school

From the book, Athletic Sports in America, England and Australia by Harry Clay Palmer. This book has quite a few anecdotes and stats/records that some will find interesting. Others will glaze over. It was published in 1889. You do the math.

Right now, it is the middle of the 7th inning, in game 3 of the Series. The Phillies are up 4-3. I'm headed for bed.

4-4 at the top of the 9th.

Do you tweak the post times for your blog entries? Or was that 7th-inning stretch really long?

I think that blogger time stamps the entry when it is first created. So, I pushed the publish button in the middle of the 7th, but I started it earlier. Geek.
