[Toledo vs. St. Louis 5/6/1884] Yesterday was cool and gloomy and not over 700 people assembled at Sportsman’s park to witness the second championship game between the Browns and the Toledos. Of this number a large proportion were negroes who were out to see Walker, the colored catcher of the Toledo club. Though the catching of Walker probably fell a little short of the expectations, he nevertheless appeared to please them immensely, and they cheered and applauded him on the slightest provocation.
