The Metropolitans

The Metropolitan Base Ball Club (colored) have organized for the season with the following members: G. Fuqua, 1b.; H. Huchanan, 2b.; H. Dickson, 3b.; S. Nash, s.s.; J. Velar, l.f.; W. Cable, c.f.; A. Martin, r.f.; A. Price, p.; D. Price, c.; T. Iverson, sub.  All challenges should be addressed to D. Price, 2319 Papin street.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, April 13, 1884

I had never heard of the Metropolitans before so I was excited to see this.  With the popularity of baseball in St. Louis on the increase in 1884, I expect to see an increase in the coverage of black baseball in the Globe.  At least that's what I'm hoping for.
