Description

(New York Clipper: “the Continentals were badly beaten, and by a club who never before played a match game  Every man in each club were uniformed, a circumstance I have not noticed before. … The ground upon which the game was played is the poorest in the city.  In the rear of the play ground is an embankment, over which the ball rolled several dozen times, causing much delay.  Eight innings only were played, on account of the near approach of darkness.”)

NY Clipper says this game was played in the rear of Girard College.
