Description

(Buffalo Daily Courier (1): “The ‘Niagara’ leave for Hamilton this morning at 8:40 via the Niagara Falls & Great Western Railway …. We are sorry to hear that several of the Niagara’s Nine will be unable to go, and hope their places will be well filled. …. The Young Canadian Club, we believe, was the first one organized in the Canadas, and we shall be much surprised if they do not play well, for every one there plays cricket, and handling a ball and bat is second nature to them.”)

(Buffalo Daily Courier (2): “The members of the Niagara Club seem much pleased with their visit to the Queen’s dominions, and from their remarks we imagine they will not soon forget the courtesy extended to them by the members of the ‘Young Canadian’ B. B. Club.  They inform us that this Club is still in its infancy, having played but a short time under the Rules and Regulations of the National Association of Base Ball Players.—The return game will be played shortly, when we hope to see a more evenly contested match.”)
