…The Akrons and the Browns are to play a series of three games, the first to-day, the next to-morrow and the final on Monday. It will undoubtedly be one of the most interesting series of the season. The park has been improved for the occasion, an immense row of open seats extending from the north end of the grand stand north for over 100 feet has been erected, a new fence has been put up where once the wire fence stood, and other conveniences have been arranged.
