"Base Ball Club - There is very considerable spirit manifested by the members of this sporting club in Jersey City, who enter into the game much zest. Three games came off yesterday. The following gentlemen were the winners by 2 on the first, 5 on the second, and thirteen on the last ---- Boyce, Jonlon, Marsh, Reynolds, Gregory, G. Drummer and Hart. Contestants --- Bixby, Bache, Hooker, Skillman, Varick Fox, Tilley, Brown, Shane and Hutton."

From the names of the players, this appears to be the Pioneer Club, with Boyce's side playing Bixby's side. See John Zinn's article on this team in Morris, "Base Ball Founders,"p. 194. Per Craig Waff, side 1 scored 21, side 2, 16. He cites the NY Clipper. [ba]
