"The Pensacola Giants beat us two straights, while we had no right to score, although we did in both games. Goldstucker has the best bunch in this section, to my judgement - a clean set of players in every sense of the word. Any club traveling down this way can find open dates with us."

"Pensacola Baseball News. - Special to the Freeman. - The Pensacola Giants left last week for Mobile, Alabama; Moss Point, Mississippi, and New Orleans, Louisiana, where they will play a series of games in each city. - The boys have been playing some fine ball this season. Three of our players have been laid up for some weeks. Hannon, who has been sick since they arrived from New Orleans, is out again and will play with the team while it is on the road. Captain Oliver is getting along as well as could be expected. He received a broken hand while on the road. Hedgen is also getting along nicely. He is one of the local players of the city and has done fine with the Giants. The Pensacola Giants defeated the Moss Point Giants in three games at Lincoln Park. Some very fast ball was played by the local Giants. The Moss Points were very easy to win from. Lewis and Scotland were the battery. The Pensacola Normal School team will play the Mobile Giants next Friday at Lincoln Park, and there will also be a picnic at the park, given by the school boys. The Pensacola Giants will soon have one of the strongest teams in the South when they return from their road trip."

Evergreen, AL
"We played here 22nd and 23rd, winning the first day 8 to 7. The feature of the game was Boot's hitting, getting four hits out of four times at bat and scoring four runs. Also Hannon's playing at third. He made two one-handed stabs and threw the runner out at first. That would make Bill Bradley feel proud. One of Boot's hits was a home run. Turner, the youngster picked up in Mobile, pitched the second day, letting the Brewtons down with two hits. Rain fell during the game. Patton pitched the game here and Harris did the catching. We picked up Smith, a catcher, at Brewton who has an arm almost equal to Petway of the Leland Gaints. Scotland pulled off a couple of good plays, throwing out two men at first base on what should have been hits from center field. We are on our tour of the North. Our next game are in Selma, then to Montgomery, where the boys are anxious to play, as most of them live htere. Cobbs, Patton, McCoy, Harris, Hannon and Scotland played their first game in fast company in Montgomery."

"We beat the Evergreens on the 23rd, 11 to 0."

Chicago, IL
"On Monday of this week the Chicago Baseball League passed a rule barring games between its members and all visiting colored ball clubs from now on, the rule being made to include the Cuban clubs that have been playing around the circuit the past two years. The rule will work very badly against the Stars of Cuba, who figured on playing on the Chicago League Circuit after the Cuban Stars left the city. This action means that the Chicago Leaguers will not play visiting colored teams any more in the future."
