Description

William E. Akin, "West Virginia Baseball: A History, 1865-2000", p. 7, says that in Nov. 1865 the Star and Anchor teams formed in Wheeling. The Hunkidoris organized in 1866. The Hunkidori Club of Wheeling WV is listed in Peverelly [1866]. It may well have formed earlier.

Akin p. 15 says that by 1867 Wheeling boasted 20 clubs, including the Baltic (the best), Resolute, United, Fly, LaBelle, Actives, Jockey, Columbia, Bachelors, Enterprise, Avalanche, Eagle, Benedicts, National, Muscle, Buckeye, Belmont and Champion. A Thorburn club played in 1867 (see Wheeling Intelligencer, April 19, 1867) and an Osceola Club formed in 1869 (Akin, p. 19).
