[describing arrangements for Chicago fans to travel to Detroit] Each man in the delegation will go armed with a small wooden duck-call of wonderful volue, and whenever a base-hit is made by the Whites will break forth in a chorus from the grand stand. Chicago Tribune June 18, 1886

[Chicago vs. Detroit 6/19/1886] [The Chicago Club accompanied by a large delegation of Chicago fans] The Whites were the first upon the grounds, and as they filed through the gates upon the diamond they were followed by the Chicago delegation, which took seats in a section especially reserved for them, and received from emissaries of the Chicago Club a pile of big, loud-sounding castanets with which the visitors made more noise than the remaining 12,000 people on the grounds. The Sporting Life June 30, 1886

The Detroit Base Ball Club and a delegation of its friends and admirers to the number of 300 arrived here [Chicago] over the Michigan Central... Every one in the delegation is provided with tin roosters mounted on broom-handles, and the gaily painted birds are said to be the possessor of as shrill a whistle as ever set one’s teeth on edge. These whistles will swell the applause which the Detroiters intend to lavish upon their players. St. Louis Post-Dispatch July 8, 1886
