The sale of the Capitoline Ball-grounds of building-lots deprives the baseball fraternity of the largest and best ball-ground they have ever had at command, and now the only inclosed ball-field left to Brooklyn is the Union Ball-grounds, which can only furnish facility for practice to three clubs–the Mutual, Eckford, and Atlantic–as it is needed for regular matches too much to admit of more clubs playing there regularly. The fraternity must, therefore, look to Westchester county for new fields, and, as is well known, there is a splendid field still left open for any parties desirous of taking timely measures for securing a permanent ball-field for the metropolis, there being no place at command on Manhattan Island or even on the Jersey shore. The grounds referred to are the Tremont Club-grounds, located within rifle shot of the Harlem Railroad, and possession special facilities for seating 3,000 spectators under the shade of the large grove of trees fronting the field. This ground is reached in twenty minutes from the City depot, and it presents a fine field for the purpose of a permanent inclosed ball ground. New York Sunday Mercury December 8, 1872

numbered reserved seats; a seating chart

You can see a diagram of the reserved seats on the Athletic grounds at Al. Reach’s. The first and second rows are not numbered consecutively, and we cannot spare the space to publish said numbers. Philadelphia Sunday Mercury December 8, 1872
