(7 innings, by mutual decision)

(Louisiana Base Ball Club intra-club conquering game. Jones's side 36, Pascay's side 30)

(The Daily Picayune (New Orleans): “There was the usual large attendance of lookers-on, of both sexes, the ladies’ tent being particularly well filled, and the characteristic hospitality of the club was most munificently displayed./…/ We may look upon this match [of three games] as virtually the inauguration of this noble and manly game among us; and we hope it will be kept up with the same spirit in which it has been commenced and so far maintained.”)

(New York Sunday Mercury: “Base all clubs are flourishing in New Orleans, and a number of matches have been played during the present season.  … the Louisiana Club … is very highly spoken of, and appears to have attracted an immense attendance of spectators.”)
