Brooklyn is in a fair way to once more become a flourishing base ball town, as there are five inclosed base ball grounds within the city limits, in addition to the 40-acre lot at Prospect Park the city authorities keep in fine condition for the juniors and amateurs to play upon. Four of Brooklyn’s inclosed grounds are over back of Greenpoint, and they do a heavy Sunday trade. Often as high as $500 is taken in at the gate on ten cent admissions in the Sunday games.
