John W. “Jack” Raper (American, journalist, 1870-1950)
TIME: 8:10 PM
PLACE: Away ball diamonds
SUBJECT: Field easement
MB's team had to forfeit their game this evening because we didn’t have enough players. The other team lent us a man and the two teams played an unofficial game anyway. I sat here, on the third baseline, which also happened to be the first baseline for the adjoining field. I was constantly having to keep a “heads-up” with the foul balls from both sides.
