(base ball)

(New York Clipper: “an exciting match, witnessed by over two thousand persons, … to decide the question as to which was entitled to the title of champion.  But eight innings were played, owing to the refusal of the empires to accede to the decision of the referee, who thereupon, after giving them ample time to discuss the question, decided the match in favor of the Magnolia, and handed them the ball.”)

The game was played at "Bingaman Commons," in Algiers, probably the site of Adam L. Bingaman's race track. Algiers is right across the river from New Orleans. [ba]
