Clipping:St. Louis attendance depressed by its big lead
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Saturday, August 6, 1887|
The St. Louis Browns have taken such a lead in the race for the pennant that all interest in it has gone. Therefore the Browns have ceased to be a drawing attraction at home, where they are looked upon as easy winner, and where the club looks for its revenue. Of course it is a big drawing card away from home, but this is of no advantage to the Browns, and this is the very reason that President Von der Ahe is anxious to get a percentage of the gate receipts. He threatens to take his club into the League if he does not get what he asks for. There are many persons who think that the Browns would be greatly benefited by getting into the League.
