(base ball)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “It will be recollected that the last-named Club [Detroit BBC] published not long since in the Detroit Tribune a challenge to play a match game of Base Ball with any Base Ball Club in the State.  This challenge was accepted by the Cricket Club, with the understanding that a return game of Cricket should be played.”)

(New York Clipper: “The fielding of the cricket club was excellent, but not being up to all the technicalities of the game, played at a disadvantage.  No return game will be played, as the cricketers find base ball too much like hard work.”)
