(New York Clipper: “The playing of the Mechanics club was fine, and Gilchrist as catcher played beautifully.  He allowed no balls to pass him, and his batting was very powerful.  He made four home runs in succession.  …  The Live Oak club is composed of young men residing in Bowmanville.  They do not practice as much as they should, and are not composed of as hardy men as the Mechanics, but, with practice will make a good club.”)
