So Now Playing Baseball is Unhealthy Again?


From the Louisville Courier-Journal, October 10, 1866


A young man in Binghamton, New York, was recently struck with paralysis of the lower limbs and of a portion of the pelvic muscles, supposed to have been caused by partly lying on the damp ground after violent exercise of base-ball playing. This should warn players against undue exposure while in a heated condition.
