This I Can Understand

Owing to the intensely hot weather, the Indianapolis Club will play the Providence team at Indianapolis on Tuesday, returning here for the contests Thursday and Saturday.

So much for playing the rest of their home games in St. Louis. While I like hot weather, things can get rather uncomfortable in St. Louis during the summer and I wouldn't blame anybody for not wanting to play baseball at the height of a warm spell here. St. Louis, as Casey said about Busch Stadium II, holds the heat well.
