Description
"In 1865 the one-armed soldier, Col. Henry B. Harshaw, took the lead in organizing an amateur baseball club in Oshkosh. Mr. Arthur Everett was then the very popular principal of the High School. He was not an athlete, but loved and encouraged athletics. Hence, this amateur club took the name of the 'Everetts.' this organization existed and played ball from 1865 to 1872, inclusive, and during these eight years played many match games.
This club played many match games and series of games with amateur clubs of other cities, notably Green Bay, Madison, Berlin, Fond du Lac, Neenah and Menasha, also the Welaunee Club and many others.
The first match game was played at Green Bay in 1865 on Astor Heights with the Stars of Green Bay, chivalrous baseball players. The Stars made thirty six tallies, but the Everetts won."[1]
