By the time this song was published in 1867, baseball had abandoned the bound rule, where the batter was declared out if a fielder caught the struck ball on one bounce. Even during that era, however, a fielder who instead chose to catch it on the fly was venerated. Our club, the Eclipse Base Ball Club of Northville, prefers playing by the rules of 1864 as we find it more interesting and further distinguishes it from a modern softball game.
