|Date||Saturday, June 11, 1870|
[Forest City of Rockford vs. Atlantic 5/31/1870] Before closing we have to award to the Forest City nine the highest praise for their quiet, gentlemanly deportment in this exciting contest. Their action in avoiding all unnecessary appeals to the umpire, their quiet acquiescence in every decision, and the plucky manner in which they fought the game up hill against odds, and the absence of all fault-finding for errors committed by their nine, presented an example which both our own clubs and the Philadelphia organizations can follow with profit and credit to themselves.
