Description

The New York Herald, Oct. 22, 1889, under the headline "Tars Play Ball" reports: "Colonia, Uruguay, Sept. 12, 1889...The apprentices of the flag ship Richmond and of the Tallapoosa have played two games of ball since the former arrived on this station and both games were won easily by the Tallapoosa boys. This proves only too well that though the boys are far from home their national game is not forgotten."
