Exhibition Season

A very small attendance of spectators witnessed the exhibition game of base ball between the Cincinnati Unions and St. Louis Unions to-day.  The St. Louis Club went first to the bat.  Dunlap opened with a home run.  Shaffer followed with a safe hit, and then Rowe struck for three bases...

And that was all the scoring in the exhibition game.  Sweeney scattered six hits and only on Cincinnati player got as far as third.
