The baseball box score is interesting.  Based on the Knickerbocker rules of baseball, back them foul balls and fly balls to the outfield could be recorded as outs if they were caught on a bounce.  This is believe to be because it predates the use of gloves.

BTW, Joseph Coffin needs to find a better way to pitch.  But another rule was the batter could tell the pitcher where he wanted the pitch.
