The Black Stockings Can Hold Their Own

The Black Stockings should be given a game at one of the city parks before departing on their Eastern tour, that patrons of the sport might see how skilled they are.

The semi-professional colored team that has been placed in the field by Henry Bridgewater is composed of strictly first-class players. The nine can hold its own against the strongest, and for that reason should be given an opportunity to appear before the St. Louis public.
