[Philadelphia vs. Atlantic 8/15/1874] ...an audience of about 300 persons only, the majority of the patrons of the game now in the city preferring, apparently , to see the earnest contests between the leading amateur nines on free grounds, to paying half-a dollar admission fees to see displays at the hands of professionals which they regard as questionable so far as the effort to win is concerned.
