Description

The Memphis Appeal, Sept. 1, 1869 reports that "The Colored Boot-Blacks play the Negro Rag-Pickers a match game of base-ball next Sunday." It seems likely that these are not organized teams.

For more on "colored" people playing baseball on the streets of Memphis, see Memphis Public Ledger, Sept. 7, 1870.
