Coming down the Allegheny Mountains Sunday night, the special train bearing the Browns and Detroits ran at times at the rate of seventy-five miles an hour. In the dining-car nothing could be kept on the table, and the rolling of the cars was such that a number of the occupants became sea-sick. Mr. Stearns was frightened almost to death, and said that he would rather give $1000 than repeat the experience.

And with that, we're finished with the 1887 world's championship series. I've never gone through the 1888 series and it's probably time that I do so but, first, I may just post some random stuff that I've been saving up. We'll see. I've also promised a long piece on Alex Crosman that I'd like to finish and put up here. So plenty of stuff to keep me busy.
Having said all of that, tomorrow I'll be posting about a trip that the Charleston (Mo.) Base Ball Club made to Hickman, Kentucky, in 1869.
