Description

"The base ball mania is raging here worse than the cholera ever did. Four clubs are already organized. The Egyptian Club has challenged the Independent Club to play a match game. The challenge has been accepted. The contest is to take place on Thursday afternoon, September 6th. The occasion will no doubt be one of interest to the lovers of this manly game, which is becoming so universally popular throughout the land."

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.

Later Cairo clubs include the Delta and the Nemo. In 1871, Cairo passed a town ordinance banning baseball playing (and kite flying) within the city limits. See the Cairo Bulletin, Sept. 10, 1871.
