The 1884 Maroons: Handsome Henry Makes His Debut

The St. Louis Club easily defeated the Baltimore Unions here to-day by a score of eight to two.  Dorsey, late of the Trenton Club, pitched for the home team, but was batted out of position in the third inning and Robinson took his place.  Boyle, late of the Actives, of Reading, Pa., made his appearance with the St. Louis, and was quite a success.  The game was not very interesting, and was only relieved of being termed poor playing by some fine field work.  Whitehead and Dunlap carried off the honors in this respect.  Boyle did the heaviest batting for the visiting club.  The St. Louis boys demonstrated their superiority over the home club at every point in the game.  The attendance was 1,000.
