The new field of the Unions was found to be a great improvement on the old one at Lansingburgh, the space being ample, the ground level, except in the far out-field, and the accommodations for visitors first-class. By two o’clock all the seats were occupied, two or three hundred ladies being present, and at three o’clock, when game was called, over six thousand spectators were upon the grounds, a large force of police being on hand to maintain order and restrain any too marked exhibition of partisan feeling calculated to annoy the visitors and injure the players, the “Haymakers” being determined that clubs visiting their grounds shall experience the best of treatment and have a fair chance to win if they have the ability.
