Richmond, IN
"Colored Team Will Play Here May 11 - Sunday afternoon, May 11, the Richmond Athletic Baseball club and an Indianapolis colored baseball team that played a draw series here last fall open their season on Exhibition park with a double-header. The two teams completed a two-to-two game series last year. Both teams were evenly matched and put up a good brand of ball. With the return of old players, the two teams should give Richmond fans an even better brand of ball. James E. Wilson, Indianapolis manual training teacher and manager of the colored baseball team, announces that he will come to Richmond on the Sunday, May 11, with a 50 percent stronger team than he ever placed on a local diamond. Jones, the star first baseman, is still with Wilson as is also Day, the comical shortstop, and Lynch, third baseman and heavy slabman. The pitcher that twirled so well for the Giants at the close of the season is also returning to Richmond with Wilson."
