Union (Medway) 25-8-11-25-25

Masspoag (Sharon) 20-25-25-24-16

(The Spirit of the Times: “The challenge, which was given by the Union, and accepted by the Massapoags, a few weeks ago, …, the rules being the same as those that governed the Olympics and Massapoags while playing their match game on Boston Common last Spring.  The game commenced at 1 o’clock, and was to be best 3 in 5 games, of 25 tallies each.  A large crowd collected to witness the game, among whom were several of the Olympics.  After playing one game they were obliged to quit on account of the rain, to the disappointment of the eager spectators.  Both clubs with the Olympics as guests retired to partake of a bountiful repast supplied by the Massapoags.  It was agreed to meet at Medway, at 10 o’clock, A. M., to finish the game.  The Massapoags were ‘on hand’ with strong hopes, but after playing 8 hours the Union Club retired with the laurels of victory resting on their brows.  …  Thus it will be seen that (although the Union Club was declared the winners by getting the twenty-five tallies three times) the Massapoags made 16 more tallies than their opponents [110 to 94], and played more even games.  This was probably the best contested game ever played in this State.  There was an exchanging of 16 innings, while neither side marked during the trial.”)

(9 innings)

(BH: “The game was that known as the New York game ….  The rules of the New York game differ materially from those adopted by the Massachusetts Association of Base Ball Players last fall.  The bases are placed at the angles of a rhombus instead of a square, the home base being the position of the striker; provision is made for ‘foul hits,’ and the ball is caught on the ‘bound’ as well as on the ‘fly.’  The game consists of nine innings instead of one hundred tallies, and the ball is pitched, not thrown. / … The playing was witnessed by a large and interested crowd of spectators. / The Portland boys arrived inn this city yesterday morning, and return home to-day.  They were entertained by the Tri-Mountain Club with a supper at the Cummings House, last evening.”)

(BDC & New York Clipper: “A space was enclosed so as to allow the game to proceed without hindrance, and the match was witnessed by a large number of people, the majority of whom selected standing places in the shade of Beacon street mall, the heat being excessive and decidedly unfavorable for base ball playing, considering the arduous exercise always consequent upon a match game.  Unusual interest attached to the game among the lovers of field sports, from the fact that it was announced to be played according to the rules of the game of the New York clubs, which differ essentially from the rules of the game as played here, and also from the fact that one of the parties to the match came from a neighboring city for the purpose of entering into the contest. / … Notwithstanding the heat of the day the game was continued with a great degree of care and energy on both sides and the playing of both clubs was excellent. …/ The trial was conducted with the best of feeling by all concerned, and, as a happy conclusion to the sport, the Portland Club was entertained last evening, at the Cummings House, by the members of the Boston Club.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “a friendly match game of base-ball (according to the New York Rules) was played…. The game was watched with great interest by a large number of spectators, and at the close both clubs were loudly cheered.  …  The weather was oppressively hot, … .  The two clubs presented a very fine appearance on the field, and one or two more matches like the last will revolutionize the Massachusetts game, and change them all to the only game of ball that is truly national, and in which so much skill and science can be displayed.  In the evening, the Trimountain Club entertained their late adversaries at the Cummings House with a splendid supper, and their after-supper talk proclaimed them scholars as well as base-ball players.  Some of the Tigers were on hand also, and opened their mouths once in a while, for what purpose it is needless to say.  The Portland Club came up in the boat yesterday morning, and most of them will return home this evening.  The pluck with which they fought the odds that were against them at the middle of the game, won for them the respect of all who witnessed the game.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “This much talked of match …, which was postponed from last Thursday, came of at the South End Riding Park … in this city.  The Winthrop Club was the challenging  party, they having been defeated by the Union Club last season, and won the championship from the Winthrops.  The event drew together a large number of our citizens—admirers of this exciting sport, also large numbers from the country towns in this State.  The game was played according to the established rules of the Massachusetts Association of Base ball players, 100 tallies constituting the game. “  …  During the progress of the game Mr. C. W. Seavy, a member of the Union Club, was struck with the ball in the temple and was taken from the field, but soon returned to do his part in winning the game; also Geo. Hoffman, member of the Winthrop Club, while running from the first to the second base, struck one of his fingers against the second base and turned it out of joint.  The game was not delayed longer than to have his finger brought back to its proper position by Dr. Fisher, of Medway, who was present, and the playing proceeded as if nothing had happened.  We hope to see our country friends again in another match at some future time.”)

(Press and Tribune (Chicago): “A base ball match for $500, between the two champion clubs of Massachusetts, commenced here today.  When the play was stopped, the Excelsiors of Upton stood 67, and the Unions of Medway 33.  The play will be resumed again tomorrow.”)

(New York Times: “A match of base ball between the champion clubs of Massachusetts, for a purse of $500  … The playing was witnessed by delegations from many of the clubs throughout the State, and by the citizens generally, to the number of 5,000.”)

(New York Clipper: 80-inning game played “according to the rules of the Massachusetts Association.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “Some weeks ago, the Union Club of Medway, and the Excelsior Club of Upton, had a trial of skill at Ashland, for the championship, in which, after a very close and exciting struggle of two days, the Unions took the belt.  But there were rumors of unfairness towards the Excelsiors, and the result was so close, that the Mechanics Club of Worcester raised a purse of five hundred dollars for another trial, which took place in this city yesterday … in presence of five or six thousand spectators. / Both clubs met on the common, in their respective uniforms, and marched to the music of Fishe’s Cornet Band to the grounds, accompanied by their friends in procession—some five or six hundred strong. / … The game was resumed on Wednesday morning, when, after 7 hours’ exceedingly close play, (in which both clubs showed much skill), it was concluded by the Uptons making the 100th tally with three men still on the byes.  The purse was presented to the winners by Samuel Lawrence, Esq., President of Mechanics Club, and received by the President of Excelsior Club in some appropriate remarks, when after hearty cheers all round, ended the much talked of match.  It was understood that the Upton Club generously presented to their rivals $200 of the $500, at a collation served at the Bay State House. / Doesticks delivered his poem on Plush to a large audience here, Tuesday evening.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “It will be remembered that the Bowdoin club, joined the ‘National Association’ at the last convention.  Both clubs contain many good players, and the game attracted considerable interest and attention.”)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “Both clubs play the game according to the rules and regulations of the ‘National Association of Base Ball Players.’  The Bowdoin Club is attached to the latter body, but the Tri-Mountain Club is not, although they were the pioneers in introducing the New York game in Massachusetts, and playing it upon Boston Common.  The game … occupied the short space of two hours; ….  Mr. E. G. Saltzman, who is now the pitcher of the Tri-Mountains, and who ranks high in his position with the Boston base ball boys, was formerly well known among us Knickierbockers as a good player and member of our Gotham Base Ball Club.  We are glad that he has carried his partiality for the sport with him, into the old Bay State, and are confident that he has given the good old pastime an impetus with all those with whom his hours of recreation are passed.  When will some of our crack clubs make a flying visit to Boston, and by a handsome trial on Boston Common, with the Bowdoin or Tri-Mountain boys, help those clubs along who are working hard in Boston to demonstrate the superiority of our ‘National Association Game,’ over the so-called ‘Massachusetts Game.’  We confidently hope that the summer will not pass, without the colors of some of our base ball clubs are hoisted in friendly rivalry in the Tri-Mountain city.”)

(New York Clipper: first match of the season; “These clubs play the New York game, consisting of nine innings. “  The Tri-Mountains “are generally older and heavier men than the Bowdoins, and not so spry.”)
