Some Friendly Matches

A friendly match was played on Saturday west of the Fair Grounds, between the Tiger and the Lone Star Clubs, resulting in the success of the latter Club.

A friendly match will be played, this afternoon, on the Empire grounds, between the "Union" and "Lone Star" clubs.

To-morrow afternoon a match will be played between the "Empire" and "Commercial" clubs.

The Tiger Club was a new one to me.  Had never heard of them.  But including the Tigers, we now know of nine antebellum baseball clubs in St. Louis.
