Location Oakland, CA, United States
Away Team  Add Club Page Chinese Boys (Chinese Educational Mission)
Score 8 - 11

“Speaking of baseball and its popularity among the CEM boys, you might add - in your epilogue - that the CEM boys (the senior boys, not Leon) played a local Oakland team just before they departed for [China]. In my book I stated that there’s no confirmation that the CEM team won, but in fact there is: The San Francisco Chronicle, 4 September 1881, p.8, states that the CEM boys defeated the local team by a score of 11 to 8.”
