[reporting the annual meeting of the Pittsburgh Club 1/11/1887] The financial statement showed that the club cleared a very handsome profit during the season of 1886. The directors refused to say what the exact amount is, but it was stated on reliable authority that their exchequer is increased by $9,000 or $10,000. President Nimick said to a Post representative that while he is not at liberty to mention the definite amount cleared, he and the other directors are more than satisfied with the result.

There was a long conversation regarding the estimates for next season. It was stated that the expenses of the club for this year will be about $25,000 more than last. Of this increased expenditure $10,000 goes to the players. The rent of the grounds has been increased more than 50 per cent. and a large amount of money is to be expended in improvements. The grand stand will be extended so as to seat 3,000 persons. A row of private boxes will be erected right along the top of the grand stand.
