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 (1): “I send you a report of a novel match played here between the Syracuse Base ball Club and the Syracuse Cricket Club, the cricket club being the challengers, to play first a game of ball, the return match a came of cricket”)

(New York Sunday Mercury: “… in cricket, the cricket club scored 150 to 78 by the ball club.”)

(Porter’s Spirit of the Times (3): “Last week we published a report of a contest between the leading Base Ball and Cricket Clubs of Syracuse, N.Y., in which both parties came off successful in their respective games.  It was a very exciting match, and created considerable interest in the ball-playing community.  We should very much like to see a similar contest in this vicinity, as it would tend materially to remove the prejudice that seems to exist on both sides in regard to the merits of the two games.  Every Base Ball player would improve his play by a knowledge of cricket and vice versa.  Fraternize, gentlemen, and let us see which field the best—the Ball player on the Cricket field, or the cricketer on the Ball ground.”)

Utica (Utica) 68

Victory (Troy) 27

(New York Clipper: The Victory club, ”who had on a former occasion handsomely beaten the Uticas on their own sod, were in poor trim, several of their principal players being absent in the country’s service, while the balance had most woefully neglected their practice during the season.  However, a nine was hastily improvised for the occasion, and they proceeded to their task with many misgivings as to their own success.  The Uticas were a fine, gentlemanly set of young men, very expert in the game, and, withal, exactly such a body of gentlemen as any club would prefer to be beaten by, provided they were obliged to succumb.  It was not a matter of difficulty to prophesy what the result would be.  The Uticas came out triumphant, having badly, although not dishonorably, beaten the Victories.  In the evening, after the game, the Troy club most hospitably entertained their antagonists, who speak in the highest terms of their good treatment.  On Friday morning (26th) they left for Albany to play a match with the Knickerbocker club, of Sturgeondom.”)
