The Excelsior Club of Brooklyn was coming to the end of a week long tour of upstate New York, playing teams in Albany, Troy, Rochester, and Buffalo.  In Rochester, the Excelsior team had played the Flour City club over nine innings and won the contest easily by a score of 21 runs to 1.  They stayed in town at the Osborne House and two days later played Live Oak of Rochester, winning again by a lopsided score of 29 to 9.  (By John Osborne)
