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: “Upon an invitation extended to the Pine Grove Club by the Mechanics, a friendly match game of base ball came off …  It was the most exciting  game of  the season, and called forth a large number of both sexes to witness the game.  Both clubs played extra well, the Pine Grove to keep the laurels they won so nobly over the Quinnipiacs last week, and the Mechanics to keep the victory on their side—this being the second contest between the Pine Groves and Mechanics.  The first as well as the second the Mechanics came off victorious.  …  After the game both clubs sat down to a table well filled with all the good things, prepared by the Mechanics.  Everything passed off in good style.
