Field Bingaman Common

Score 45 - 20

(The New Orleans Bee: “Another match at base ball, for the championship of the South … the victorious Magnolia Club having been challenged by the Lone Star Club. … / There was a large attendance on the ground, and both clubs had their tents pitched, but the majority had to stand it out in the sun, which was rather too powerful for their comfort.  But for the want of shade the Bingaman Course would be a good ground.  Could not a better field be found in the City Park?

(New York Sunday Mercury: The match “drew together a large number of spectators.”)
