Description

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times (2): “… the game being the first match of Base Ball in this city.  The grounds were filled at an early hour … the ‘Early Risers’ playing to disadvantage being on the grounds of the ‘Detroit Club,’ which is very uneven and not adapted to playing on.  They intend to have a new ground next season.”)
