(BDE: “It is thought that several thousand persons were at one time present on the ground. … From the facilities which the outskirts of our city afford for practicing this fast-becoming national game, our Brooklyn players have become the best in the country. The play yesterday on both sides would have been hard to beat. As the champion colors are still held by the Atlantic, why should they not give one of the best New York Clubs another chance?”)
