Description

"We are please to learn, too, that the young gentlemen of our city are awaking to the importance of this matter [exercise], and have again organized a Base Ball Club, with the intention, if possible, of making it a permanent institution of Louisville. The Club now numbers some twenty members, and it is proposed to increase it by the addition of such young gentlemen as are desirous of engaging in this most glorious of all outdoor sports.

The first match for the season of the club was played at their grounds on Cedar Hill last week."
