[Haymakers vs. Keystone 9/7/1869] It was originally intended that a regular match game should be played, but when the Haymakers arrived on the ground, they objected to Cope and Wood taking part in the game, as they were not legally entitled to play. The Haymakers had previously consented that these two men should play but changed their minds after being defeated by the Athletics. The Keystones, therefore, gave their opponents a ball, and rather than disappoint the large crowd present, played a social game.
