Clipping:Early rumor of the Philadelphia Club; dissatisfied members of the Athletics
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, November 10, 1872|
We hear a little of the project of forming a stock company to organize a first-class base-ball club in this city next year, to rival the Athletic. The starters, if success attends their endeavors, will mostly be dissatisfied members of the Athletic, some of them men who would not hesitate to put their hands deep in their pockets to support the enterprise. While not wishing to disparage the Athletic in any way whatever, we do not see, as we have often said, why Philadelphia cannot support two first-class clubs.
