The Louisvilles arrived last night. They are in charge of Phil. Hinkle and Joe Gerhardt. The latter says Manager Sullivan, of the Kansas City Club, brought the Louisvilles up there to play three games and then refused to play them - his only excuse being that the weather was too cold. As a result the Louisvilles are here ahead of time, and instead of playing games here on only Saturday and Sunday next, they will now try to arrange a regular series of three or five games.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, October 23, 1884
I'm a little surprised that this series actually took place. I had mentioned the possibility of the series some time ago but just assumed that, for political reasons, it wouldn't come off. But the Louisvilles were in town and they were going to play the Maroons.
