Date of Game Monday, May 24, 1869
Location St. George, Ontario, Canada

On the Queen's Birthday (a holiday in Canada at the time) sides were chosen for an "old style" game of baseball, from the crowd of celebrants, for a $5 prize. The game was interrupted by a fire.

Was this the Canadian variant game?

St. George was/is a small hamlet just north of Brantford.
