(BDE: “Owing to the arrival of the Great Eastern the number present yesterday was very small, not numbering probably over 500. The game was a very good one, showing very good play on the part of both clubs. The Excelsiors batted well, but not so “wicked” as on the Charter Oak match. … The game was marked by the usual gentlemanly conduct shown on all occasions by these Clubs.”)

(NYC: “The attendance of spectators was very numerous, considering that the arrival of the Great Eastern was such a counter attraction. The steamer came in sight during the game, and for a time stopped the proceedings, as a fine view was had from the grounds as she proceeded up the bay.”)
