(7 innings, due to darkness)

(PSOT (2): “The Lone Star drew the game, on account of the darkness coming on. The score stood 7 innings, to the Enterprise’s 6, they being 3 runs ahead on odd innings.”)

(PSOT (3): “The score at even, sixth innings stood: Lone Star, 23 runs; Enterprise, 21. In the seventh innings, the Lone Star made 4 runs, Enterprise 3, when the game was drawn, Enterprise at the bat. As this is our first match, we should like to have a correction made.”)

(PSOT (4): “The match … not being finished on account of the late hour they commenced, it was expected the game would be finished on the ground of the [Lone Star], very soon after; but the President of the Lone Star Club has received a note from the Enterprise Club ‘respectfully declining to play the match out,’ as they considered themselves a ‘Junior Club,’ while the Lone Star was not so considered by ‘the best Brooklyn authorities.’ The Lone Star is a young club, but from constant practice have made themselves formidable. This declination is no small compliment to them.”)

(PSOT (5): “Quite an excitement has been raised in Bedford about the refusal of the Enterprise to play the return match with the Lone Star, of Jersey City.”)
