Haight-street Baseball Grounds

If the track that is expected to be laid at Haight street next season proves a fast one and the champion's business will permit, the local riders may look for some good records.

BAY CITY WHEELMEN, Well-Known Athletes Who Travel Around on Wheels. - The San Francisco Examiner, Oct 14, 1888

The most important event in wheeling to take place in the near future is the meeting of the Bay City Wheelmen to-morrow at the Haight-street Baseball Grounds. From the large number of entries and the well-known speed of many who intend competing it is conficiently expected that the meeting is already an assured success, and that several new records will be established. The handicaps have been arranged by R. A. Smythe of the Racing Board of the California Division, League of American Wheelmen, and as Mr. Smythe is conceded to have a good idea of the respective merits of most all of the riders on the Coast, close contests should be the rule.
