Home Team Putnam Club of Brooklyn
Away Team Excelsior Club of Brooklyn
Score 37 - 20
Innings 8

(8 innings, due to late start, because of tardiness of some Excelsior players, and darkness)

(PSOT: “Both these clubs have improved in their play since their contests of last year, but the improvement on the part of the Putnams is more marked than that of their opponents, who were deprived of the services of one or two of their best men of last season. … [The Excelsiors] complain that it is difficult to induce their men to turn out and exercise, and it was easy to see that their defeat was in a great measure owing to that cause, as their men showed no want of muscle and endurance, but were deficient in that sharpness and correct judgment which can only be acquired by constant practice.”
