Text

The Baltimore club arranged to play a game with the Mansfields, in Middletown, On Thursday last, but they failed to come to time, and the Mansfields, of course, claimed the game by a score of 9 to 0. It appears that the Baltimores, for the sake of a little extra gate money, preferred playing in Boston with the Boston Club, and by so doing they forfeited the Mansfield game, and as they also lost the Boston game, two defeats instead of a victory may be set down as the result of their poor management and dishonorable conduct in failing to keep their engagement. Philadelphia Sunday Mercury June 9, 1872 [The game in Boston had been scheduled for the previous day, but was cancelled on account of rain.]
