Description

(return match)

NYH (1): “A Base Ball match between eight players of Brooklyn and eight of New York, was announced to take place in Brooklyn to-day [6 Oct], and also a shooting match among the members of the Anglo-American Club of this city. It is not believed, however, that either of the events will 'come off,' in consequence of some mal-arrangements of misunderstanding among the several parties.”)

(NYH (2): “We stated yesterday that the proposed Base Ball match between eight players of New York against eight players of Brooklyn, would turn out to be a failure; and so it was, for the New Yorkers did not make their appearance on the ground, and the supper provided by their order was necessarily untouched."

(NTMN & TS: "The Base Ball match between eight Brooklyn players, and eight players of New York, came off on Friday on the grounds of the Union Star Cricket Club. The New Yorkers˜were singularly unfortunate in scoring but one run in their three innings. Brooklyn scored 22 and of course came off˜winners.")
