The Union Blues

The Union Blues, the new team which is to hold forth at the Union Grounds during the absence of the regular team, met yesterday and effected a permanent organization.  Among the players present were Clark, Boils, Lancaster, Lee, Daily, Wipps, Gartland, Murphy, Whelan, Shields and several others.  All of these report for duty at the Union Grounds on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and the playing team to play the St. Gotthards willl then be selected.

The Union Blues would be a great title for a book about Lucas and the UA.  Feel free to steal the idea.  Just give me credit in the introduction.
