Base Ball.

A closely contested match at this new sport here took place yesterday on Beacon Hill between the Victoria Cricketeers and the Fashion Club. The play on both sides is represented as having been very good. The Fashion Club, however, was victorious. The folling is the score:

British Daily Colonist, March 31, 1863. The game should be noted for having both a 10 men/10 position lineup and the designation of two short fielders. The Cricketeers double listing of positions is also of note. The usage by the Fashion Club is similar to suggestions Henry Chadwick would be making for a 10 position game in the coming decade.
