A practice game of ball was played at Solari's park yesterday between our new professional nine and some of our amateurs, whose evident want of practice made the game one sided. The game was made up in a hurry and no particular effort made to secure a strong nine to oppose the regulars. To let the new nine play a game together was evidently the object the manager had in view...
The professional Red Sox will open the season to-day in a game with the amateur Atlantics, on their ground. Game called at 3 o'clock.
The season tickets for the professional games played by the regulars are now ready, and can be had at Graffen & Floyd's, 619 Olive street.
