Description

The Base Ball Club Championship between the 24th United States Infantry Base Ball Club and the Mississippi Valley Base Ball Club took place on the 24th Infantry parade ground, which was located at the end of Cherry Street across the railroad. The local newspaper noted that "Provision has been made by Gen. Dudley, to seat all the ladies who may be in attendance. The game is well matched on each side, and as many of the players are experts, fine playing may be expected." The day after the game the paper noted, "The Base Ball game passed off yesterday, the citizens club winning by three runs; the game, as we expected, was close and interesting. There were a large number of our citizens present."
