Description <p>Our readers will remember that th <p>Our readers will remember that the “Actives of Brookfield extended an invitation to the various Base Ball Clubs of North Missouri to come to this place and play with the on the 4<sup>th</sup> of July, for a silver-mounted rosewood bat. Three clubs accepted the invitation – the “Amateurs” of Brunswick, the “Grand Rivers” of Chillicothe, and the “Hesperians” of St. Joseph. As it was impossible for each of these clubs to engage the other on that day, it was arranged that in the morning, the “Amateurs” and “Hesperians” should engage each other, and, in the afternoon, the “Grand Rivers” and “Actives” should try their hand – the two winning clubs to engage at some future time. The “Hesperians” were the winners in the morning, the score standing 43 to 25; the “Actives” came off victorious in the afternoon – score 70 to 25. It was left to some future time to decide whether the “Hesperians” or the “Actives” was the better club. That “future time” was last Thursday...</p> <p> At 2:30 P.M. on Wednesday, the first nine of the “Actives,” together with three reserves, and a large number of our citizens, took the cars of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad for the scene of contest...On the following morning the Captain of the “Hesperians” called on the Captain of the “Actives,” and all the necessary arrangements for the game were made. After dinner the clubs repaired to the grounds of the “Hesperians,” near the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad depot. The grounds were crowded with spectators. Men, women and children – representing every grade of society – were there, and it is probable, that, during the entire game, which lasted over four hours, there were fully one thousand people proscut. [Final score was Active 47; Hesperian 44]</p> <p>-Brookfield (Mo.) Gazette, July 24, 1867</p> eld (Mo.) Gazette, July 24, 1867</p>
