Asa Brainerd, pitcher for the original “Red Stockings,” of Cincinnati, is to be engaged by the Baltimore Base Ball Club as change pitcher. This will strengthen their batting very materially, as one pitcher cannot hold out long enough in order to give the men proper exercise at the bat on practice days. The engagement is a good one, too, in view of the late Boston games, when Cummings was so badly punished. A change pitcher on the nine might have won the Baltimore one and perhaps both of those games.
