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.

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times (3): “The famous Greenpoint Club went up the river on Thanksgiving day and had a friendly bout with the Newburg Bas Ball Club.  As will be seen by the subjoined score they brought home another ball to add to their large collection.  After the game the Newburg boys extended to the Eckfords a princely and generous hospitality, thus proving to their guests that, although they might meet with defeat in the field, at the festive board they proudly occupied a No. 1 position.”)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times (4): “The first game between these clubs was played at Newburg last Thanksgiving, terminating in favor of the Eckfords, on which occasion the Eckfords were entertained with princely hospitality by their friends of the Newburg Club.”)

(Peverelly: “The Excelsiors were received by Mr. Miller and associates, and conducted to the Orange Hotel.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “At the close of the game, the two nines repaired to the Forbus House, where, after a fine dinner, Mr. Fisher, of the Union Club, in a few words, presented the ball played with in the morning, as a trophy of victory, to the Poughkeepsie Club.  The President, Mr. Cogswell, received the ball with appropriate remarks.”)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “The Poughkeepsie have just given a practical and proper evidence of their gallantry, in erecting a temporary inclosure for the suitable accommodation of their lady friends and acquaintances who desire to witness their pastime.  Some five to six hundred spectators, including a liberal portion of ladies, were in attendance as spectators of both the morning and afternoon trials.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “In this match both Clubs labored under disadvantages.  The Unions had been playing all the morning, and some of their nine were pretty tired.  The Olympics lacked three men of their regular first nine, among whom was their catcher, who is a host in himself, and would doubtless have turned the scales had he played.”)

(New York Times: “Too much praise cannot be given to the fifteen hundred spectators, who on this occasion conducted themselves in a quiet and orderly manner, showing clearly that the warning of the Atlantic match is having its effect.  …  After the game was finished the Eckfords and their guests proceeded to a repast.  The ball was given up by Mr. Adams, of the Newburgh Club, with a few pertinent remarks, which were responded to on behalf of the Eckfords, and both parties separated mutually pleased with each other, and with the day’s play.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times: “The game was witnessed by a large number of spectators, and everything passed off in a quiet and pleasant manner. … / At the conclusion of the trial, the two Clubs and their invited guests proceeded to the Odeon to partake of a supper and other hospitalities provided by the Eckfords.  We regret to say that the proprietor of the Odeon; although ranking as an experienced and first-rate caterer, did not, upon this occasion, do the thong up in proper style, which fact greatly mortified the Eckford Club and their friends, who, as the latter had been so bountifully and handsomely entertained in Newburg, desired to do all in their power to reciprocate. / The deficiency was so great that the entire party left the Odeon and proceeded to Theall’s, where the Clubs passed a pleasant evening, and the Newburg boys were entertained to the best of the Eckfords’ abilities, under the circumstances.  A pleasant and social time ensued, the two clubs passing some happy hours in each other’s society, with a due interchange of speeches, sentiments, and song.”)

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: The game “attracted a large and interested number of spectators, a large portion being ladies.  …  the Ulster Club has been organized less than a year, and have, during that time, played five match-games, won four, and one was declared a tie.  The Ulster now claims the Championship along the Hudson, and we think their excellent playing has fully entitled them to that honor.  We should, however, like to see them try their luck with some first-class Brooklyn or New York club. From what we have heard of them, we think they could rub some of our first-class city clubs pretty closely.  The Hudson River were handsomely entertained by their Saugerties friends and the best of feeling prevailed.”)
