The “Bethlehem Globe-Times“, Pennsylvania, newspaper of August 4, 1937 has a curious some article about a baseball game in 1893, as told by an elderly gentlemen who was involved in the game some 44 years previous. It provides some interesting reading, although I’m not convinced it actually happened. What do you think?

    Can’t find anything in contemporary papers, but there’s a biography of Wild Bill Setley (he was a really wild character, apparently, and not just in baseball), so maybe the authors, one of whom is a SABR member, looked into the story.

    I searched through many newspapers looking for this game. I never found it, but Wild Bill may have been telling the truth.
