[From the New York Clipper June 1, 1889.]
Clarence "Kid" Baldwin first attracted attention as a player in 1881, when he was with the St. Louis Reds, a noted organization of the Mound City at that time. His first regular engagement, however, was in 1882 with the professional team of Springfield, Illinois. In 1883 he joined the Quincey Ill. Club of the Northwestern League with which he remained throughout that season and part of 1884 until it disbanded. He finished the latter part of the season of 1884 with the Kansas City Club of the Union Association. In 1885 he went to the Cincinnati Club, with which he has remained ever since. He has made a great name for himself and is generally conceded to be one of the best catchers in the profession. In 1888 he caught in no fewer than ninety-six championship games, including forty nine consecutive contests. Besides being a great catcher, Baldwin is a very good batsman and an excellent base runner and in him the Cincinnati Club can boast of a most steady and reliable player.
