Crescent Edges the Olympic


From the Louisville Courier-Journal, June 29, 1867

BASE-BALL MATCH AT CEDAR HILL – The following is a summary of a match game of base-ball played yesterday afternoon between the Crescent and Olympic Clubs. Owing to the non-announcement of it in the papers, very few spectators were present. The Olympics are in bad luck, having lost nearly every match game that they have played. Owing to the darkness and lateness of the hour, only eight innings were played, with the following result:
