Iu the year 1845, tho Knicker

organized and incorporated in the

Now -York City. They issued a
littlo pamphlet containing tho
rules and regulations, by laws,
and a list of tho players. The
ruleB are of considerable interest
to present lovers of tho game,
showing, as thoy do, tho changes
made in half a contury.
Rule 1 says that tho ball must
weigh not loss thau 5: nor moro
than G ounces. It must moasuro
not less than 9 nor more than 10
inches. It must bo composed of
India rubbor and yarn, covored
with leathor, and iu all match

The bat must bo round, ( prior
to this date it was generally ilat)

any length to suit the striker.
Tho bases woro placed tho same
distanco apart as i90 feet) thoy
aro at present, but, what strikes
ono as an improvement ovor tho
present custom, the homo
plato was painted white and
was circular in shapo. No sizo
for tho homo plato is montionod
nor for that of tho pitcher, which
was a duplicate- of tho formor.
Balks on tho part of tho pitcher
woro forbidden. A lino four

plato, designated hi3 limit toward
tho batter's placo. If tho pitcher
overstepped tho line or mado a
foiut to pitch tho ball, ovo'n to
drawing back tho hand holding it,
tho batter was ontitled to ono baso.
Tho ball hud to be pitched, not
thrown or jorkod. Foul linos woro

range of tho first and home, or

striko or foul wore caught by tho
catcher or any othor momber of
tho opposing nino on the lly or

With tho exception of tho points

ch'ango is in tho modo of handling
tho ball. Ouo can imagiuo tho

ho could play "a littlo bit," bangod

would now bo considered o "dead
