Clipping:The finances of the Forest City club
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Saturday, April 2, 1870|
The Forest City Club of Cleveland, held a meeting last week, to make preliminary arrangements for the advancing season. The composition of the first Nine was discussed, but not finally determined... The club is now in correspondence with several excellent players, with a view to secure their services, but the difficulty with the officers is that the club has not a fund such as it should have. That the receipts of the season will be large is believed, but the club does not feel justified in hiring too many players on an uncertainty. What is wanted is that a number of men of means, interested in base ball, should agree to be responsible for the debts of the club if the proceeds of the season be not sufficient to meet all liabilities. A committee to solicit subscriptions was appointed, and the meeting adjourned.
