The 1884 Maroons: A Plucky Lot Of Players

The meeting at the Union Grounds yesterday afternoon of the St. Louis and Baltimore Unions, resulted in a closely played and interesting contest, the visitors holding their own all through, and, while they outbatted the home team, they were only defeated by a single run.  The game was full of pretty stops, good catches in the field and good throws in to head runners off at the plate.  There were few errors on either side, and the few that were made were all excusable.  The batting from first to last was free and hard, and the outfielders on both sides were given plenty to do.  The Baltimore boys proved themselves a plucky lot of players, and a nine likely to lower the St. Louis' colors at any moment.
