As reported by the Arkansas Gazette on July 14th, 1894:
"Rose Citys Defeated the Uncle Joes. Score 6 to 4."
"A large crowd witnessed the game of ball at West End Park last night between the Rose Citys and Uncle Joes. The First regiment Band discoursed delightful music both before and after the game. The First Regiment Band has greatly improved and is now one of the best in the State. Baseball by electric light is a new thing in Little Rock, but as predicted it was a success. All those in attendance expressed themselves as delighted with last night's game.
"Weber and Martz played with the Uncle Joes, and Kemmer did the twirling for the Rose Citys.
"There was plenty of light and the game was played as though in broad day light. The game resulted, Rose Citys, 6; Uncle Joes, 4. Last night's game was an experiment, and as it proved such a success should another game be played soon the park will be crowded to overflowing. Mcalister and Kemmer have signed with Camden."
Note that the game was one of the first played at night in the south.
