"In the first inning O'Connor's hand was hit by a pitched ball and the little finger was broken. He was succeeded by Allen, a young college catcher. He caught well." - Sporting Life's report of the August 4, 1893 game which Cleveland won 7-2 over Chicago, with Cy Young pitching and Pete Allen batting sixth in the lineup
