(BDE: “The first contest between these prominent clubs … the Eagles, who played steadily, and very well, too, considering that they were weakened by the absence of four of their regular first nine players. … towards the latter part of the game the Charter Oaks improved a little in their play, which was very inferior in the first three or four innings … The high wind that prevailed interfered materially with the pleasure of the contest, …”)

(NYC: “These leading clubs played together for the first time …. [The Charter Oaks’] play on the occasion did not merit the victory, however, as it was a very mediocre display in the early part of the game, their efforts being marked with miss fielding in stopping balls, throwing to bases, judging catches badly, and missing them also, besides poor batting by the majority of their nine. … Had the Eagles been fully represented on the occasion, they would probably have returned with a ball from the Charter Oaks.”)
