May 28 in San Antonio history...

1888
There seems to be no likelihood of the San Antonio baseball team starting out on their league games through the state this week unless a miracle occurs to furnish them money for expenses. The players have no money and their salaries are past due.

Some people feel that the Bexar County property owners and the City of San Antonio should contribute according to their means and sink artesian wells without calling on the funds of the city for this purpose. The river is rapidly dying.

1918
Improvements are being made at the bathing beach in Brackenridge Park. Rock walls have been built to line the banks and a flagstone bottom is being laid in the pool. A new artesian well will supply fresh water.
