Awaiting Review
Date August 1866
Location Brooklyn, NY, United States


[A] "Owing to his heavy expenditures and with a laudable desire to keep out the "rowdy element" that has so often disgraced our base ball fields, Mr. Cammyer. has changed, or rather will change, the price of admission to twenty-five cents for a single ticket." 

[B] (At) "The Athletic grounds...The tariff of admission was raised from 10 to 25 cents to keep the boys out, for our juveniles are as badly brought up that they are the foremost in creating disturbances at exciting ball matches."
