Item # 547561

August 28, 1867

NEW-YORK TIMES, Aug. 28, 1867  The back page of this issue has: "Out-Door Sports", "Base Ball--Unions, of Morrisania vs. Eckfords, of Williamsburgh". Has a summary of the game, mentioning in part: "The batting of Aiken, Austin and Birdsall, was the tallest kind, while Goldie and Martin made a home run each by long hits to the centre field, the formers strike being a tickler". Includes the box score showing the Unions win, 25-23.
This issue is in good condition, although the first leaf is trimmed a bit close and some scattered foxing can be found throughout.
