Miss Mary E. Boyce began an attachment suit in the Circuit Court yesterday against Wm. Stromberg, late President of the Maroons Base Ball Club, for the purpose of recovering $450, money due for the rent of the grounds on the corner of Cass and Jefferson avenues.

A couple of weeks ago, I was in North St. Louis, driving down Grand Avenue. I realized, rather quickly, that I was in an area where a lot of the old ballparks had been. I actually drove right past where the Grand Avenue Grounds had stood and turned off to get to Illinois at the old Fairgrounds, where the Cyclone/Morning Star match was played. I also passed within a few blocks of the Union Grounds at Cass and Jefferson and of the site of New Sportsman's Park on Vandeventer and Natural Bridge.
One of these days, I need to take a camera up to the area and get pictures of all of these sites. That would make for a nice post.
