|Date||Saturday, August 15, 1868|
[Union of Morrisania vs. Detroit 8/1/1868] These grounds were the most extensive that the club has yet met with on its tours... The seats are the handsomest that it has been our privilege to see; all those in the main stand are provided with backs, while the whole is covered with an extensive roof or top. The reserved seats are situated back of and to the left of the catcher’s position, and are placed on the roof of the club house, while the reporter’s stand is “lofty,” being a broad platform built about half way up a large tree situated behind the catcher.
