(PSOT: “The weather was delightful in the extreme, and that, together with the opportunity afforded of witnessing some good ball-play, brought on the grounds a large number of spectators, probably near a thousand altogether, among whom were a large number of the fair sex—the beauty of the Brooklyn ladies being prominently shown on this occasion. It is a source of gratification to see that these manly games are so well attended by the ladies. Their presence ever adds to the attractive features of the game itself./The locality of the grounds of the Pastime Club are unquestionably the best in Brooklyn. Ample shade is afforded, and a fine green turf renders the field peculiarly attractive to the players, and far superior to the dusty grounds of a majority of the clubs. … The arrangements were excellent, and highly creditable to the committee in charge. A handsome entertainment concluded the exercises of the day, and we presume the usual conviviality ruled as the order of the evening.”
