Clipping:A plea for rain checks
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, April 14, 1872|
Before the season formally opens we desire to again plead with the Athletic managers to issue coupon admission tickets. It is but justice to the patrons of the game that upon being admitted to the ground, after paying their entrance fee, that if rain or other cause prevents a game, that the money should be returned. It is a gross wrong to keep the cash and render no equivalent for it, and would create a riot if done in any other place of amusement. It is impossible, under the present system, to refund the money paid, as there are always hundreds of persons on the grounds who obtain admittance either by season tickets or scaling the fences; therefore, the issuing of coupon tickets is the only resource to prevent the wrong and also the ill-feeling that always is shown upon such occasions.
