Clipping:City politics interfering with organizing clubs; Tammany Hall and the Mutuals
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, November 26, 1871|
The Mutual are making no effort to organize for the campaign of 1872 on any base likely to make them prominent contestants. What they may do by next spring is another thing. But clubs that intend to be strong should organize now. By March next material of the best kind will be scarce. The critical condition of political affairs in the metropolis has put a stop to several baseball enterprises, the ready cash so available last season not being now at command; besides which the opportunity for sinecure places for ball tossers is not now available, the reform movement having stopped that source of professional club assistance.
