The Plattsburgh Sentinel - Friday, August 1, 1890

--The Keeseville and Ausable Forks base ball teams, played a game of ball on Tuesday, on the grounds of the latter, which resulted in a score of 17 to 4, in favor of the Keeseville nine.

--The D. & H. will run a special to Rouses Point to-day to convey people to the ball game there between the Beverwycks and Hotel Champlains. The train will leave here at 2 o'clock, and stop at Chazy and West Chazy. Round trip 50 cts.

--The ball game between the Beverwycks and the Hotel Champlains, played at Rouses Point last Saturday, resulted in a score of 9 to 12 in favor of the colored nine. The latter part of the game was a disgraceful affair, and the outcome will be a lawsuit.

--Local base ball players have arranged for a game with the famous colored nine, the Cuban Giants, to be played on the Fair Grounds in Plattsburgh to-morrow.
