The Union Club Of Morrisania Visit St. Louis

The Union Club of Morrisania, New York (pictured above in an illustration taken from the October 26, 1867 issue of Harper's Weekly) actually played two games in St. Louis in 1868. On August 14, they played the Union Club of St. Louis and won 37-30. It was the second most runs the Union of Morrisania would give up all year and it's actually rather shocking that the Unions of St. Louis almost upset the 1867 champions.

The next day's game between the Empires and the Union of Morrisania was covered briefly in the New York Times on August 17, 1868.
