(BDE: “A small number only were present owing to the match at East New York. The playing of the Clubs was fair, once in a while a bright play being made. The Charter Oaks saved the reputation of Brooklyn by keeping the ball.”)

(NYT: “The Manhattan Club was defeated, for the second time in some 19 matches. … [In the 9th inning] the setting sun came out from behind the houses full in the eyes of the Manhattan’s catcher, the result being 5 runs and a victory for Charter Oak. … After the match a collation was provided by the victors, at which Mr. Herrick presented the ball for the Manhattans with a few good-humored remarks, which were appropriately responded to by Mr. Piper for the Charter Oaks.”)
