Craig Waff's Games Tabulations made foundational contributions to our effort to document games and clubs before baseball became a professional sport. Craig's work is memorialized in this section of the site and lives on as a substantial mass of entries in Pre-pro Baseball. For more information about Pre-pro Baseball, see our About Pre-pro page.

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times & Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “The Base Ball boys of the ‘Eureka State’ are lively and enthusiastic in the pursuit of the game of Base Ball.  Many new Clubs are forming in various parts of the State, and it affords us pleasure to stace [sic] that the ‘National Association,’ or New York game, is the only style of Ball playing at all encouraged in California. / … the Eagles … are generally ranked as the champions of their State. Gelston and E. Kerrigan were absent from the Eagles.  The Em Quad Club is composed exclusively of printers, and is one [of the] best playing Base ball organizations of the ‘Golden State.”)

(New York Clipper: “Our national game has, we are glad to find, its enthusiastic followers as well, in the Golden as the Empire State, and, we doubt not, some as skillful players.  It is not surprising, therefore, that a wholesome emulation should exist, and a liberal rivalry manifest itself between the leading clubs, so much so as to create the desire to know which is the champion club.  To this end a tournament has taken place between the three acknowledged first, namely, the Stockton, Sacramento, and Live Oak.”
