Not everyone in Philly played town ball. "PENN TIGERS BASE BALL CLUB. – The Two Nines of this club played their first match on Monday, 13th inst, at Philadelphia, Boyce's party beating Broadhead's by only one run, the totals being 24 and 23." Unidentified clipping in the Mears collection. Facsimile provided by Craig Waff, September 2009.

Another intramural game was played on November 18 1858, according to the Clipper of November 27, 1858 (see Protoball Games Tabulation (Phil. table) compiled by Craig Waff.) Apparently a final intramural game occurred on September 30, 1859, when the club marked its anniversary.
