Description

The New York Mercury, June 3, 1860, reported that the Duquesne BBC of Pittsburgh is "in a prosperous condition." The club plays "on the Commons opposite the Theological Seminary." See also, "Early Games".

This site must be the Allegheny Commons. The 1861 Pittsburgh/Allegheny city directory has the "theological seminary" on the corner of Buena Vista and Shanopin. Shanopin (Shanapine) was then the northern boundary of the commons, with Buena Vista a north-south street running into Shanopin from the north, near the Penitentiary.

The Pittsburgh Daily Post, June 14, 1860 mentions the Duquesne BBC and the Alaquippa [sic] BBC.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.

Is the site of the first game the Allegheny Commons in Allegheny? In 1861 the "Theological Seminary" was at the corner of Buena Vista (which runs into the Commons from the north) and Shanopin.
