(NYT: “A somewhat amusing game of ball was played …. Owing to the prospect of rain but four of the Union first nine were on the ground, and they were compelled to call on five of their ‘muffins’ for assistance. As might be expected, the muffy play predominated among the Unions, some of the points played by the substitutes elicited general laughter and applause.”)
