“Base Ball.–The match between the Eureka and Rock City Clubs yesterday, on the grounds near Fort Gillem, resulted as follows, the game being played with great spirit on both sides and lasting two hours and twenty-five minutes:
The game was a well conducted one, and until the fourth inning the Eureka were in the lead, owing to excellent fieldings.
Crockett took Pitcher’s position in place of Flagg, filling it with credit.
A new feature was introduced by Mr. Sullivan, Umpire, in calling balls, with have heretofore passed unnoticed.
A pretty fly-catch, straight from the bat, was made by Castine.
It is thought that another game will soon be played between these clubs.”
