Description

The New York Herald, May 24, 1886, headlined "Away Down South": "Our exchanges from Buenos Ayres [say] Baseball now attracts its crowds every Sunday at the Plaza Euskara... The pleasures of the game seem to be fully appreciated by our political kith and kin on the other side of the Equator. When the pitcher hurls the ball with such dexterity that the catcher receives it in the eye, the audience grows wild with delight and madly yells for an encore."
