(The New Orleans Bee: “the Lone Star having challenged the Southern Club ….  the conclusion was postponed until next Sunday at the same place.  …  The great feature of the occasion was the beautiful pitching of the Lone Star’s pitcher, who gave underhand twist balls which seemed invincible, and it took the Southerns all afternoon to learn the ‘dodge.’ “It was the general opinion that the Southerns excelled in fielding and running bases.”)
