(play-over of 13 Nov tie game - 4 innings – DRAWN GAME)

(PSOT: “Some of the members of each Club, supposing there would be no game, because of the extreme coldness of the weather, absented themselves; but seven members of each club reporting for duty, they went to work, but darkness finally put a stop to the game at the end of the fourth inning. Therefore, under the rules of the Base Ball Convention, it was not considered a game, and they concluded to lay over all further proceedings until next Spring. They adjourned to Bill Swartz’s hotel, near the ground, and had a good time generally, thawing out.”)
