"Marcos Lose. - Dayton, Ohio, May 15. - The Marcos, the semi-professional colored team of Dayton, Ohio, were defeated on their return to their own grounds by the Victors, a white organization, last Sunday in a fast and furious game. The colored boys were in the lead until the beginning of the ninth, when the white boys made five runs, making the score even at the close of the ninth. In the tenth the Victors put in two runs, making the score 8 to 6. Sloane, the captain of the Marcos, pitched throughout the game."

"Marcos Take Both Games. - Dayton, Ohio - The Marcos won two farcical games from the Madisonville A.B. colored team last Sunday and Monday. The latter had to work exceedingly hard to prevent being shut out. The A.B.'s were completely outclassd and were helpless under the brilliant work of Benton and King's twirling and Sloan's home run. The Marcos, who have lost only one out of eight, possess all star players. Harris and Brown pitched for the A.B.'s."

"Marcos Win. - by Williams Thompson. - Dayton, Ohio. - William Sloan, the well-known southpaw, has worked exceedingly hard in making the Marcos successful, and he stated that he was very much pleased with the sowing of the new boys in last Sunday's game against the Piquas. The first game since they were reorganized was on from the Cincinnati Cubs; lost the second to the Avondale Oaks, and shut the Piqua team out 8 to 0. The features of the game were Sloan's homers, splendid work of the infielders, allowing no balls to pass by; Anderson, the star third baseman, and Boots, shortest man with the Marcos, were successful batters."

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."
