Clipping:Scheduling games; eligibility for the championship
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, April 14, 1872|
There was a gathering of professional club-managers at Davidson’s on Friday to arrange for matches, tours, etc., and to settle championship questions. It was decided to regard any club as having duly entered for the championship from the date of their paying their entrance fee, and that consequently any two clubs can legally play a championship game that have paid such fees this month. It was also decided that no club should be considerd eligible to enter for the championship pennant except the clubs enrolled as members of the Professional Association. This excludes all clubs except the Atlantic, Athletic, Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, Eckford, haymakers, Mutual, National, and Olympic clubs.
