Von der Ahe's Lease On Sportsman's Park

I'm going to get to the 1886 World Series soon but I have a couple of things in my bookmarks that I'd like to post first.

Mr. Von der Ahe has secured a lease on Sportsman's Park for another year at a rental of $3,000, so the Browns will remain at the same old stand for at least another year.
-Sporting Life, October 28, 1885

I think that's useful information.

Tomorrow, I have the Chicago Tribune spreading Von der Ahe stories in 1885.
