(home-and-home match)

(NYC: “The match was a sort of contest for the championship of the junior clubs, and therefore quite a large crowd was collected together to witness it. … “the batting was of little account, as a very high wind prevailed for one thing, and the breaking of the bats, owing to cold weather, destroyed many hits that would have told on the score. … we cannot speak well for the feeling that was occasionally manifested by some of the members of both clubs, but especially of the Powhattans; it was boyish in the extreme, to say the least of it. From what we have seen of the result of these matches for the championship, we are inclined to the belief that they are anything but beneficial to the interests and welfare of the game, for though they lead to the acquirement of a great degree of skill in the practice of the game, the ill feeling that is engendered is an offset that is more important as a matter to be considered.”)

(Peverelly: “Home-and-home game for the championship.”)
