Two of the country's best baseball clubs meet in Philadelphia with Brooklyn's "Atlantics" victorious

The two teams of what most considered to be the best baseball clubs in the country, the Athletics of Philadelphia and the Atlantics of Brooklyn met in an important game in Philadelphia at the Athletics home ground at Sixteenth Street and Columbia Avenue.  The encounter was closely fought and was tied in the seventh inning but the visitors won the match in the ninth inning.  A return was planned for Brooklyn.  (By John Osborne)
