(NYT: “Over 4,000 spectators of this interesting and exciting game were present. If any argument were necessary to practically illustrate the growing popularity of the game of Base Ball with the American public, a view of the Greenpoint grounds yesterday, with its immense assemblage, would convince the most skeptical. The game terminated in a victory for the Atlantics, which Club has not met a defeat in several years. It is said that the only ‘home and home’ game they ever lost was with the Empire Club, of New-York, some years since.”)
