Description

(New York Clipper: “At 7:40 A.M. on Saturday, 14th inst., a nine of the Maryland club of Baltimore, boarded the cars for Washington, on a visit to the National Club of that city, with whom they were to play a match that day.  Arriving in Washington at 9:30, they were met by a deputation from the National, consisting of Messrs. French, Pope and Underwood, the former the President of that club, who escorted them to the Buhler House on Pennsylvania Avenue, when, after the necessary fixing up, smiles round, dinner, etc., they proceeded to the playing grounds, which are located in sight of ‘Honest Abe’s’ domicile.  The day being very warm, very active play was not shown until somewhat late in the afternoon, when some extra skill was exhibited with both bat and ball, particularly with the former by the Baltimore boys, in the eighth innings, in which Messers. G. Poplein, Price, Hooper, Green and Lilly, made home runs in succession—five in all!  This specimen of batting was indeed admirable and was much praised.  …  Unfortunately, Mr. G. Popelin, the catcher of the Maryland Club, injured himself in the second innings, and was unable to resume play until the seventh, which rather weakened his party, who, however, finally won, after a well played game, by two runs only.  At the conclusion of friendly hostilities, the Buhler House was once more visited, where refreshments in abundance and of first class quality were once more discussed at the invitation of the liberal Nationals, and a good time all round was experienced, and ‘they didn’t go home till morning, till,” etc.  The Marylanders reached Baltimore on the afternoon of the following day, much pleased and edified with their trip.
