Date Thursday, July 9, 1885

[Providence vs. Chicago 7/8/1885] The heat was intense, and the wind blew so violently that the grant stand trembled under the strain. Clouds of dust were swept across the diamond, almost blinding the players and making them restive and ill-humored. Under such circumstances the ball-going public would doubtless feel grateful to the management if a sprinkling-cart were brought into requisition upon the streets surrounding the grounds, and a hose with a smaller sprinkler attached used upon the diamond.
