(BDE: “A match of base ball between two rival clubs of Flatbush, that created more than usual interest in consequence of the disparity in the ages of the two clubs … The ‘Meitowoks’ being all young men, and the Eagles only lads of from twelve to sixteen years of age, but who seem to vie in courage with the proud bird whose name they bear.”)
