To-morrow the Olympic Club holds it regular annual meeting and election of officers. There is a movement on foot to put the nine in such a condition that it can hold its own against all competitors. There is some opposition to making the club a contesting organization, as that would apparently interfere with the practice of some of the members. But an arrangement will be made which will be satisfactory to all parties. The Olympic have a fine reputation all over the country, and will be regarded with great interest during the season. They owe it not only to themselves, but to the credit of the city, to put their nine in as strong a condition as possible. Philadelphia Sunday Dispatch March 3, 1872

The annual meeting of the Olympic Base Ball Club, of this city, was held last Monday evening, at their club-room, N.W. cor. 13th and Market streets. The full attendance and the enthusiasm manifested evidenced the degree of interest taken by the members in keeping intact their organization. Dr. Neal presided over the meeting, which was characterized by the utmost good feeling and spirit. ... The majority of the members present were in favor of having an amateur nine, and we have no doubt that under the efficient management of the above-mentioned board of officers that a nine will be selected which will be a credit to the city. Philadelphia Sunday Mercury March 10, 1872
