Sweasy Released At His Own Request

Charles J. Sweasy, the veteran second baseman, has severed his connection with the St. Louis Red Stockings, having been released at his own request. Charlie has done a great deal for the Reds and under his Captaincy they have gone through the most successful season since their organization. He has made many friends during his stay in St. Louis and will always be warmly welcomed on the ball field in this city. He will probably be snapped up by some first class club to guard second next season. Ellick will play Sweasey's position for the Reds in future.
