We allude to these two clubs especially, as they have been rivals since their organization, the Enterprise club practicing on the same grounds as the Atlantics, and the Stars, up to this season, on that of the Excelsiors, both the Atlantics and Excelsiors being at times recruited from these junior clubs. … It would seem that the Atlantics play only when occasion demands, and they generally show their marked efficiency as ball players the best when they are in a tight place. … The storm on Monday interfered with the play for an hour, but the game was resumed and finished. Quite an assemblage of spectators was present, ….”)
