    I thought Ned Hanlon would surely see that Mr. Phillips has no business occupying the 4th position in this order by now?

    From the "PLAYING RULES OF THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF Professional Base Ball Clubs; 1884" umpire rulebook:

    RULE 50. The Batsman, on taking his position, must call for a "High Ball," a "Low Ball," or a "High or Low Ball," and the Umpire shall notify the pitcher to deliver the ball as required; such call shall not be changed after the first ball delivered

    Why was this rule ever changed?

    Don't worry about the date. Some guy in the SunDeck thinks it's the 29th.

    Also,

    RULE 63. No Player except the Captain or his assisstant shall address the Umpire concerning any point of play, and any violation of this Rule shall subject the offender to a fine of five dollars by the Umpire.

    $5 in 1884, would be what now? like $200 or $300?

    He was unable to overcome the notable handicap of being dead for the last 16 years.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Man, this Cardinals defense has been lousy this year.

    Love it.

    In early baseball the pitcher's job was actually to assist the hitter in striking the ball. When Jim Creighton started throwing very hard and deceiving batters there were outcries of cheater and foul! One of the rules to assist pitchers to assist hitters was the high-low call. Balls required to walk were even increased a couple times to cut down on walks and fouls weren't strikes either to cut down strikeouts. After all the idea is for the batter to strike the ball. That was the thinking and it wasn't entirely gone by 1884. You would probably recognize fast pitch softball played without gloves more than today's baseball if you could go back and watch a game in 1884.
