Waste Pitch (1906)

“.…he [Charlie McFarland] displayed bad judgment immediately after by failing to waste a pitch on Seigle. Mac had two strikes on the Red outfielder before even a ball was called, yet he let the next one cut the plate, and Seigle walloped it to the fence, clearing the bases.Brooklyn Daily Eagle, August 8, 1906, p6
