April 27, 1903: "Lauder Accepted Malarky's Four Presents, Filling The Cushions."

The Library of Congress has thousands of digitized newspapers online, many from the late 1800s and early 1900s.

I found some entertaining play-by-play reporting from the Monday, April 27, 1903, edition of the evening edition of the New York World. Although the score was complete on the front page, the account of the game inside included only five innings.
