The Game To-day, between the "Brown Stockings" and "Reds," will be called at four o'clock, at the Grand avenue park. This will be the first professional game of the season in this city, and excites considerable attention. The "Reds" are determined that, if their Eastern rivals are to win, they will have no easy "walk away" of it, but will have to extend themselves to their utmost to win a ball from them.
