Backing His Team

Manager Bridgewater, of the Black Stocking (Colored) Club, says he is willing to back his team against the Eclipse Club, and will put up a forfeit at any time that Manager Brooks may name.
-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, August 31, 1884

Hopefully, we'll get past the talking stage and have a nice series of games between the Black Stockings and the Eclipse.  And hopefully, the Globe will cover it.

As you already know, it won't be pretty for Bridgewater's team... no Isaac Carter, no William "Bill Davis, no Jospeh Harris; what a disaster!

I'm just hoping for more coverage of the club. It's kind of interesting how the coverage picked up in August 1884. Not sure if I have an explanation for that.
