"First grand Basket Pic-nic of the Hope Base Ball Club, to be given on August 4th, at Laclede Station, on the P.R.R.  Cars leave precisely at 8 o'clock A.M.  Tickets one dollar.

P.S. - An interesting game of base ball to be played on the occasion."

Jeff Kittel--This is a vital piece of information as far as tracing the first baseball game in Granite City, Illinois, is concerned.
