Date Saturday, May 21, 1870

[Athletic vs. Union of Morrisania 5/13/1870] few were aware of such a meeting the attendance was sparse. The Union nine were not all notified, either; consequently when the Athletics appeared, the Unions could only present seven of their nine... The Unions, however, being determined to keep their engagement, procured the assistance of two of their reserved amateur corps, who also belong to the Fordham College nine, and taking the field with their accustomed pluck, proposed to “fit it out on that line” even if defeat stared them in the face.
