Another Packy Dillon Sighting

Packie Dillon will play ball again this year. There was a time when Packie was the king-pin of catchers in this neck of the woods.
-The St. Louis Globe-Democrat, March 9, 1882

A pretty vague reference but Dillon was playing baseball in some form as late as 1886, specifically in the Sullivan benefit game. In 1887, he purchased the Mehlville farm and was certainly done playing ball by then.
