"Sandlot Games Tomorrow. - Newark Athletics vs. Newark Colored Giants, at Athletic Park (afternoon).

"It has been rumored that Joe Carter, manager of the Newark Giants, has secured the services of Buchner and Bradford, the crack battery of the Lincoln Giants, of New York, to twirl for his team tomorrow, when they meet the Newark Athletics at Essex County Park. If such is the case it will mean that the Athletics will have to travel at high speed to dispose of Carter's team. Manager Glassen, however, does not seem to let that worry him in the least, as he figures that his team are quite able to care for themselves in a pinch. He will present his regular lineup."
