(New York Clipper: “… these clubs played the first game of their home and home match for 1862 ….  Last season, prior to the breaking out of the war, the Continental Club, of Brooklyn, for the purpose of adding interest to then ensuing base ball season, prepared a splendid silver ball to present as a token of honor to the victorious club in a series of matches for the championship.  The war sadly interfering with the prosecution of out-door sports last summer, the presentation of the ball was laid over till this season; and the members of the Continental Club have now resolved to present the ball to the Atlantic and Eckford Clubs, its possession to be determined by a home and home match, (Best two out of three games) between these clubs.”)
