(25 innings)

(Boston Herald (1): “A challenge has been given by the Union Base Ball Club, of Medway, to the Massapoag Club, of Sharon.  These clubs are universally acknowledged as the 1 st in the State, and the best game of the season may be expected should they come together.—The Unions won the championship from mthe Massapoags in a closely contested game, at Medway, last fall, but the friends of the Sharon boys are satisfied that they can retrieve their lost laurels, and the challenge will no doubt be accepted by them at once.”)

(Boston Herald (3): [long article on Union-Massapoag dispute]

(New York Clipper: “the arrangements being that the first 75 tallies should declare the winners, provided time served to make as many runs—otherwise, the judges were to decide on the circumstances which should conclude the match.”)
