Date Sunday, September 2, 1866

[Athletics vs. Eurekas of Newark 8/27/1866] It was remarked by all that the fence in the rear of the catcher had been removed, which gave rise to considerable discussion among the friends of the contestants. The result of its removal, however, was disastrous to the Eurekas, as Osborne, their catcher, allowed ten balls to pass him and Dockney only two.
