Description

(return game)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “The Henry Eckford is a somewhat newly organized club, having been in existence but a little more than one year. They have, however, in their ranks, some very superior and experienced players, who have enjoyed a great deal of practice in other clubs; among them we may instance Tooker, formerly of the Gotham; Snow of the Champion; Holt, of the Pastime; and Bell and Squires, of the Eckfords. / … Although the harlems played well at times, the game, as a whole, was not very creditable to them, in comparison to many of their recent games, and in batting they were far from being up to their usual standard.”)
