Clipping:The difficulty for a minor club to arrange games

A St. Louis paper thus speaks of the “pony team:” “This week the Reds will start on their Eastern tour if games can be arranged with the professional clubs. Manager McNeary will telegraph them for dates, but, from all that can be learned, it is doubtful whether the old clubs ill accommodate the ‘ponies.’ The Reds intend doing all they can to arrange for Eastern games, and if they do not succeed, the fault will be with others. The idea of disbanding has never entered the manager’s head, and the boys will dot heir utmost endeavor to play their quota of games with every club in the arena. The Bostons and Philadelphias will probably not play them, and the Athletics will doubtless join in. The fact is, there seems to be no show for a new club unless it goes into the hippodroming business.
