Description

Henry Ellard, in Base Ball in Cincinnati (McFarland, 2004), pages 20-21, describes this game as "the first match game of base ball ever played in Cincinnati." [page 20].

He also notes, however, that one of the visiting side batted one-handed using an 18-inch bat. [page 21].

Ellard does not provide the original source for his account.

Query: can we find that source?
