Dunlap Is On His Way! Plus: Lots Of Math!

Dunlap and Shaeffer, of the St. Louis Union Club, left Philadelphia last night and will arrive in St. Louis to-morrow morning. Roche leaves Chicago to-night and will be here tomorrow morning. This will complete the Union force. Beginning to-morrow morning, the Union players will report twice daily at Union Park, and in the morning they will practice from 10 to 12, and in the afternoon from 2:30 to 5:30. Manager Sullivan will play this nine in the opening game, the names being given in the regular batting order: Dunlap, second base; Shaeffer, right field; Dickerson, left field; Gleason, third base; Rowe, center field; Taylor, first base; Sullivan, catcher; Roche, short stop, and Werden, pitcher.

Next Sunday the Union Base Ball Park will be opened by the regular team playing a strong picked nine, which will include Baker, Whitehead, Hodnett, Quinn and others of the regular team.

Season tickets for the games at Union Park are now ready for circulation, and can be obtained at the office of Henry V. Lucas, at the corner of Fourth and Pine streets. The seats in the best part of the grand stand are to be numbered and sold in regular rotation, the first comers being the first served. There will be fifty-six championship games, and the season tickets entitling the holder to admission and reserved seat to all of these will be sold until April 19 at $22. This makes the regular price of the reserved seat 39 1/3 cents, or a reduction on the regular price of reserved seats 20 2/3 per cent. Besides the reserved seats, season tickets for the field and open seats will be sold for $11. This gives the holder fifty six admissions for 19 2/3 cents each. This is the cheapest base ball ever offered local patrons.
