(Troy Daily Whig: “The Champion Club, of Albany, says the Statesman, played the Excelsior Club of West Troy on Friday, and, contrary to our expectations, ‘had a hard row to hoe.’  The Excelsiors played finely, while the batting of the Champions was far below their usual standard, and the consequence was a closely contested and exciting game.  The Excelsior Club have made several alterations in their nine, which have vastly improved it.  … A large number of spectators were present, including a great many ladies.”)
