|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Wednesday, April 30, 1879|
The veteran Knickerbocker Club opened play for their thirty-fifth season on Friday, 25 th, at Hoboken, and the weather being find they had an enjoyable afternoon's sport. Sides were drawn by Messrs. Taylor and Kissam at half-past four and a game of six innings was played, Kissam pitching one one and Chadwick on the other, the former doing the most effective work. The Club will meet every Tuesday and Friday now.--New York Herald. The forty-seven-years-old Olympic boys, who play every Tuesday and Friday at Oakdale Park, were just twelve years old when the Knickerbockers were born, and we think they can beat them just twelve runs in a game. How we would like to see Grandfather Richards—who is nearly four-score—knock the life out of Chadwick's pitching. Oh! Golly, get up a match, just once for luck.--Philadelphia Item.
