1875 Knickerbocker Base Ball Club Reunion Game
On September 27, 1875, the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club held a reunion base ball game between the 1855 and 1865 teams.
At the invitation of his former Knickerbocker teammate, James Whyte Davis, Doc Adams returned to Hoboken for the game to celebrate Davis’ twenty-fifth year with the club. The Youngsters of 1865 whitewashed the veterans by a score of 21-0. Doc was the catcher for the Veterans of 1857. They managed five innings of play before ‘retiring’ to Duke’s Hotel for a meal and no doubt toasts and the sharing of stories of the old days! It was Doc’s last known visit to New York and Hoboken.
