The Metropolitan Exhibition Company has today [4/16] sold to Mr. Frank Rhoner of this city [New York] the right, title and good will of the Metropolitan Base Ball Club, including everything connected with it, and Mr. Rhoner will hereafter be the president and James Mutrie the manager of the same. Mr. Appleton no longer has any connection with the club. The backers of Mr. Rhoner are said to be several moneyed men of this city, but their names have not been made public. Outside of the contract money and money thus far expended on their grounds, the price received by the exhibition company is stated as being very small. Boston Herald April 17, 1884

Mr. Rhoner is a wholesale furniture dealer in New York City, and has taken some interest in the national game. He will retain James Mutrie as manager. St. Louis Post-Dispatch April 22, 1884
