To-morrow, the East St. Louis will play the Dexter of this city for the last time.  This game will decide the championship between these two clubs. 

EStL Gazette, May 16, 1874

The East St. Louis boys, "the champions," will have a contest with a "picked nine."  Judging from the excellent playing the "champion" players McCurdy, Griffith and Gainey done in the match last Sunday with the Dexter club of this city, in which the score was - East St. Louis 43, Dexter 38, it will be safe to say that the "picked nine" will find at the end of the ninth inning - if night don't come on too soon - that they "picked" at the wrong club to "practice" with...Time will be called at 1:30 p.m., at the East St. Louis B.B.C. grounds, near corner of Sixth street and St. Louis avenue.
