TextThis property is a special property in this wiki. <p>Over five years after the fact, t <p>Over five years after the fact, the <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Ball Players’ Chronicle</span> evidently dug up an old CW letter and published it:</p> <p>“Camp Crooke, July 20<sup>th</sup> 1862. We had a good afternoon’s sport here yesterday. The selected nine of the 4<sup>th</sup> N. Y. V. came to our camp, confident of victory, to play us a game of base ball. . . . They played a very strong game and had a tip-top pitcher and catcher, but they were outbatted , our boys doing some tall things in that line. Lieut. Fuller treated them handsomely, and they departed in good spirits, though feeling a little sore at their defeat, having hitherto beaten every other nine they have played against.” A box score of the regulation 16-11 game was included. The article also reports on an earlier match between the 13<sup>th</sup>’s right wing and left wing, and a shorter impromptu contest between the staff officers and line officers of the 13<sup>th</sup>, “the latter [game] was a rich match, full of all the attractive features of muffinism.”</p> <p>“Base Ball Reminiscences,” <span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Ball Players’ Chronicle</span>, November 28, 1867. From the Giamatti Research Center at the Baseball Hall of Fame, Civil War folder, accessed June 2009. The 13<sup>th</sup> was evidently a three-month regiment that mustered out in September 1862. The 4<sup>th</sup> was from New York City.</p> /sup> was from New York City.</p>
