There are to be two new privileges this season in addition to the “score card syndicate.” Louis Wolfson will provide cushions warranted to keep the corns off frequenters of the “bleaching boards” and pavillion for a nickel a pice. Will Hennessy is to preside at a candy booth in the grand stand, and boys in unfiroms will sell the sweetmeats during the games. The Sporting Life February 16, 1887

Ban Johnson baseball reporter

Bancroft B. Johnson has succeeded O. P. Caylor as base ball editor of the Commercial-Gazette. Ban is an enthusiast of the first water and is one of those sort of “base ball fiends”--commonly called--who would rather see a game of base ball than eat. He has been a local historian on the staff of the paper that has promoted him to a place in the shoes so ably worn by Mr. Caylor. O. P. Continues to be a member of the staff and will dispense base ball comfort from New York as the season wears on. The Sporting Life February 16, 1887
