The Reds Visit Springfield, Illinois

The St. Louis Red Stockings...stopped over (in Springfield, Illinois) to-day on their tour, and played the Libertys a game, which resulted in favor of the Reds by a score of 16 to 13. The game was the best and most hotly contested ever played in Springfield. The Red Stockings go to Chicago to-night to play the Franklins, who dispute with the Liberty's here the right to the amateur championship of the State.
-The Chicago Daily Tribune, August 22, 1874
