In New York baseball, the Atlantic and Mutual Clubs meet in Hoboken

The Knickerbocker and Excelsior Baseball Clubs, New York, 1858
07/30/1860
The Atlantic and the Mutual baseball clubs of New York met at the Elysian Fields in Hoboken.  The more famous Atlantics were using the game as a warm-up for their upcoming fixture against the even more famous Excelsior Club of Brooklyn.  Although the Mutuals reportedly gave a good account of themselves, the result demonstrated the experience and the standing of the Atlantic Club, as they emerged as winners by a score of  35 to 15.
