Description

(New York Clipper: The Excelsior “seem to work like a machine, their points in the field being invariably well filled, and their batting tremendous. … The Pastime also played well, but when pitted against such a host of talent, it is not to be wondered at that they should come off second best. Practice makes perfect, however, and it is possible that they may regain the laurel … in their next encounter with the same club.”)
