BROOKLYN PLANS PARADE IF BRIDEGROOMS WIN
BROOKLYN, N.Y. – (Oct. 12) Although the American Association pennant race hasn’t been decided yet, city officials here yesterday announced plans to celebrate the “coming champions” Brooklyn Bridegrooms when the team returns home next week.
Following three games at Columbus, the team is scheduled to ride home next Tuesday by train to Jersey City and to then go by boat to Brooklyn. The plan is to meet the squad at 5 p.m. when it arrives by boat at Fulton Ferry. The team would be taken in carriages to Washington Park, escorted by members of local baseball clubs in uniform, carrying torches and led by a military band. Fireworks would be fired off en route. Also planned is a reception and banquet at the Academy of Music’s assembly rooms.
All that remains is for Brooklyn to win the three games in Brooklyn to stay ahead of St. Louis, which yesterday played an exhibition game against the National League’s Indianapolis team. Indianapolis won.The Browns are at fourth-place Cincinnati
