The O.K. Grounds

A very interesting game of base ball came off on the O.K. grounds Sunday (August 27), between the Hope, Jr. and Baltic, Jr. clubs in which the Hope, Jr. came off champions.
-St. Louis Daily Press, August 29, 1865

Really the only thing of interest here, besides more documentation of the rebirth of the game in St. Louis during 1865, is the reference to the O.K. Base Ball Club. Tobias mentions the club as existing in the postbellum period but I don't have much more information about them. I'd like to know more about them but I just don't.
