[Mutual vs. Chicago 7/23/1870] Between 5,000 and 6,000 people assembled to see [the game]. Thanks to the liberal expenditure of greenbacks and pine lumber on the part of the managers of the Chicago Club, all these people found comfortable and eligible seats. There was room for as many more, and it was only owing to the great heat of the afternoon that the seating capacity was not pushed to its extremity. The present arrangements are admirable in every respect, and are vastly superior in extent and quality, to those of any base ball ground in America., quoting the Chicago Tribune
