Among them was a piogrossive-rmnded gentleman named Alexander J Cartwright Cart\\ nght observed the progi ess the Eagles, the Emp .e Baseball Club Tins is a night of champions at Stele Armory Fo- the first time in the mstoij of independent basketball in this city two lecogn zed State championsh p basketball teams will baJ.le with local quirlets 01 the same bill Stalling promptly at 7 4 5 o'clock, Company K of Bindford, State Na- lioral Guard kings, will meet the local Howitzers Captained by High-Pockets" Harry Scullcy, loi- fei Long Island University star, the bojs from McKean county have won 18 games and lost but five this Manhattan, tne Excelsiors, Put- j SQE150n Sculley ,ias scoied 350 nams, Eckfords and Atlantic^ in Biooklyr weie among these Inter- boio competition giew keen The Kmckeibockers appeared with the first baseball unilorm in 184D, natty tailor outfits designed by the club blje woolen pa-its, \\hite flannel shirts and stiaw hats' Mohair caps weren t substituted for fio straw hats until 1855 of the players, and proposed that in- Basoboll n Nc\v Yoik was known asmuch as they enjoyed the sport why not organ ze a baseball club' This suggestion wasn't adopted until Septembei 3, 1845, when the Knickerbocker Baseball Club came .nto being Then teams had nine men on a side. As the city grew, they were forced to move uptown to the Murray Hill section to find a piaymg field, and eventually grounds here also became scare One day the players boaided the ferry for Hoboken, N.

Cnristians took three from the Presbyterians and report that they are not out of the running yet. United Brethren still ha-v, c their eyes on first place for they ·won three from Greenwood The M. P. team, although in last place, is bound to make itself heard and out- noised the German Lutherans by garnering two games The lesults of the games Under then* newly adopted lules, which followed Doubleday s pattern, the Knickerbockers played their first official game on June 19, 1846, with i pick-up team called the New Yoik club The pitching distance was 45 feet. They played only four innings, the rules providing that 21 acres, or runs, would deteimme the winners At the end of four hands, or -nnings, the New Yorks chalked up a victor}, 23 to 1. Following the Knickerbockers other clubs rapidly sprang up in the New York area with resullant rivalry between the teams The Washington club, later the Gothams, as the Ne-v York game, but in New England anothei \cision retailing rrany of the featmes o£ town ball was being played This was called the Massachusetts game, and runners were still plugged with thrown balls Because of existirg confusion on rules in \ anous sections, the Kmck- eibockeis called the first baseball convention in 1857 and this was eiorved 'oigamzcd baseball" with a ·uling body called the National Association of Baseball Players The i jles were i ev isod to provide f 01 n no innings Then called strikes weie m- tioduced although there w e t e no called ballb This eliminated delays caused by batteis waiting out pitchers Two all-star teams, repiesentmg Brooklyn and Manhattan, were selected in 1858 to play a series o£ three games at the Fashion Race Course on Long Island. Admission of 50 cents was charged, 1,500 attended the opening game, and Manhattan won the series, two games to points while playing in 20 games At 8 45 o'clock, the Westmghouse Electiic and Manufacturing Company s glamoi team, girl champions ot Pennsylvania and onp of the outstanding female teams ^f the United States, will play Connellsvillc Hec- rea ion Center Shamrocks The gorgeous golden cyclone from East Pittsbuigh will once more feature Mniy Braaley, who 's by far the ·smoothest forward piaymg girls b.isketball in the Pittsbuigh district.
