Description

Morris, "Base Ball Founders" pp. 296-299 says this club was founded in 1865.

One of the players, Luther Askin, was African American, and this is asserted to be the first recorded instance of a multi-racial baseball club.

The New York Clipper, June 23, 1866 reports that the Hampden Club of Chicopee defeated the Eagle of Florence 36-10.
