Glory Enough For One Season

Chicago made a desperate effort to win enough exhibition games to make a "stand-off" with St. Louis in the item of victories, but has failed ignominiously. The Browns won six out of ten championship contests and four out of five exhibition games from the Whites, which is glory enough for one season and an indication of the manner in which the Chicago team will be cleaned out in '77 by both St. Louis and Boston.

I've posted box scores from two of the exhibition games but the others didn't show up in my search. I could run them down but I don't really see the need. It's enough to note that the Brown Stockings won the post-season exhibition series against Chicago, four games to one.
