The 1884 Maroons: No Charge

Every afternoon this week, the St. Louis Unions will play practice games at the Union grounds, having for their opponents the Union Reserves, who will be assisted by an outsider or two.  Experience has proven that the players practice better before a crowd than when not watched, and consequently these games will be open to the public and there will be no charge at the gates.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, April 8, 1884
