[The Union/Buckeye] game attracted but little attention the main reason being that it had not been announced in the papers until the day of play and the Buckeye Club did not rate very high in public estimation. The press of the city wasted no space on the visitors and the St. Louis public never could endure anything so closely allied to rowdyism as the display of the Buckeye players when they rode through the public streets shouting doggerel, so that when they made their second appearance at the ball park to play the Empire Club there was but a slim attendance. It was a game of 8 innings. Buckeye 44, Empire 9.

As to the questions of the character of the Buckeye players, I'll talk a bit about that club tomorrow.
