...the opening proceedings of the time-honored Knickerbocker Club...took place on Friday, April 26, on their new field of operations, the St. George Cricket Ground, foot of Ninth street, Hoboken. ... The new ground presents a fine turfy covering, admirably adapted for fielding purposes, and in this respect is a great improvement on the old ground–now occupied by the debris of a lumbar-yard. The club will have to purchase a tent for lady visitors on match occasions, there being no shelter from the rain except at the cricket club house. New York Sunday Mercury April 28, 1872

[The Knickerbockers] have recently engaged one day’s use of the enclosed cricket field foot of Ninth street, Hoboken, at the large outlay of $300 the season... New York Clipper May 4, 1872
