BOSTON BASE BALL CLUB. This organization held their annual meeting at Boston, Mass. Dec. 3, the attendance being small. The report of the president showed that the club numbered one hundred and ten members... Inquiry was made by one or two members of the club in regard to the amount of original stock held by the club, and one of the original stockholders present stated that seventy-two shares of the forfeited stock had been passed over to Mr. Haynes, the treasurer, and was at the disposal of the club. ...


The members of the Boston Base Ball Association–or, in other words, the original stockholders in the old corporation–held their annual meeting the same day. The report of the treasurer showed that the receipts for the year had been about $23,000, of which $19,000 were the net proceeds of games played here and elsewhere. The amount in the treasury was some six hundred dollars. Action was not taken in the matter of electing officers for the coming year.
