In baseball, the Brooklyn Excelsior visits the Baltimore Excelsior
The Brooklyn Excelsior Club were hosted in Maryland by the Baltimore Excelsior Club. The Brooklyn team won by a score of 51 runs to 6, in nine innings. After the game the hosts stood the winners to an elaborate dinner at Guy's Monument Hotel in the city. The Brooklyn Excelsior then went on to play in Philadelphia two days later. (By John Osborne)
