A neat triple-play was made in the opening game of Ned Cuthbert's nine at St. Louis, Mo., on May 9. Men were on first and second bases when a liner was it to Baker, who was playing first. Baker purposely dropped the ball, threw it to third, who forwarded it to McSorley at second, the latter returning the sphere to Baker in time to retire all three men.
