Clipping:Baseball good for business
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, April 23, 1871|
The period of time when the Athletic shall be occupied in winning trophies which shall not only add laurels to the club, but which shall also redound to the credit of the city; for the time has come when the merchants admit that most of their business depends upon the prowess of the city’s representative base-ball nine. This may be doubted by some, but we know from actual experience it is so. A trip with the Athletic last year has convinced us of the fact.
