Clipping:The state of the Atlantics
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, November 20, 1870|
A Brooklyn paper recently reported that the Atlantic nine will be divided up amongst outside clubs. It has been stated since by parties who seem to be posted up that the report is not correct; that, on the contrary, the majority of the nine will remain in the old club, and reorganize a stronger professional nine than ever. One thing is certain, however, and that is that there will have to be some change made both in the nine and in its management, for harmony has been lacking in the one and a judicious control of the affairs of the nine in the other. This season the management has had too much of the hippodrome business about it. The report that the members of the Atlantic Club had dwindles down to less than thirty is false. The club has eighty-eight active members and thirty honorary members on the roll.
