Mr. Lucas on yesterday received a communication purporting to represent the views of the mercantile public and requesting that next Saturday's game be called at 4 o'clock. That hour would be too late for this early in the season, but the time of calling the game will be changed from 3 to 3:30. Latter on 4 o'clock will be the regular hour of calling the game.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, April 17, 1884
Yeah, you have to hate it when work interferes with your ability to go see a baseball game.
One other Maroons related note: The club had a practice game scheduled for the 17th against a team called the Ramsey Mohawks but it was cancelled for unknown reasons. Their next game would be the season opener.
