Clipping:Cricket clubs challenging one another to baseball
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, August 19, 1866|
Noticing in last Sunday’s Mercury a communication saying that the Olympian Cricket Club were desirous of playing the Athletic Base Ball Club a game of Base Ball; and as the Chippewa would also like to play a game of Base Ball, the Chippawa hereby challenges the Olympian to play them a match game of Base Ball at as early a date as convenient. We would prefer a home and home match. An answer, addressed to the Secretary, will meet with prompt attention.
Respectfully, SAML. W. MERRILL,
Sec’y Chippewa C.C. 1342 N. 11 thst.
