Description

Alpine (NY) 20

Union (Elizabeth City, N.J.) 17

(NYT: “The Alpine Club played their first Base Ball match, since their organization at the beginning of the season …. The Alpine Club is composed of young men connected with the Jane street Methodist Episcopal Church, who take pleasure in healthy out-door exercise. … There is no reason why the next match of this young club, should not be graced with the presence of some of their fair friends, who would no doubt be highly pleased with the doings of their brethren.”)

(NDA: The Alpine Club “members belong to the Jane street Methodist Episcopal Church, who think that religion and healthful out of doar [sic] exercise are not incompatible.”)
