(NYT: “A large number of spectators were upon the ground, an unusual proportion being ladies.”)

(BDE: “A large number were on the ground, many being ladies.”)

(PSOT: “The first match this season between these Brooklyn clubs …. Considerable interest was manifested in regard to this contest, the excellent play of the Pastimes, in their game with the Atlantics the same week, making it a question of some doubt as to which party would prove victorious on this occasion, especially as the Pastimes were aided by Dayton, whose absence in the Atlantic match materially affected the play of the Pastimes. There were fully two thousand people present on Thursday to witness the contest, among them, as usual, a number of the fair sex, who will always find ample accommodation provided for them at all base ball as well as cricket matches. … The game was well played on both sides, and the result is highly creditable to the Excelsiors, as the Pastimes have shown in their last two matches that they are not to be disposed of by any club without excellent play on the part of their opponents.”)
