Clipping:Providence Club finances
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Saturday, November 29, 1879|
The annual meeting of the Providence Baseball Association was held at Providence, R.I., on Nov. 29... The treasurer’s report showed that the past season had been a successful one financially, the profits of the year being $1,500. The schedule has been a serious obstacle to the pecuniary success of the club, as in 1878, when the Providence and Boston Club opened the season on their respective grounds, the receipts of the twelve games were $7.000, while for the same number of games between these clubs in 1879 but $3,400 were realized. The gate-moeny receipts of the club aggregated $21,450.86.
