hit to all fields (1900)

“It is simply impossible to play for a batter of the Hans Wagner kind. He has no particular field in which he drops his safe hits. The other day he hit into all three fields in one game, and every one of his drives was for two bases. When Wagner is at the bat it is best for the outfield to stand in their regular positions, as far back as possible, and wait for something to happen.” “Gossip of Baseball,” Commercial Tribune (Cincinnati), April 29, 1900, p14
