Description

There is some dispute as to whether this team is the same Gotham club that began as the Gothams in 1837 and then became the New York Club in 1843 that likely played the Knickerbockers in the first match game in 1846.  Peverelly cites that this team was a "consolidation" with the Washington Club http://protoball.org/New:Washington_Base_Ball_Club. To quote a 9/19/14 email from Richard Hershberger "I would expect to see the word 'consolidating' with regard to two existing clubs, not a newly formed and an existing club." (rc)

Comment

Despite the conflicting views as to the pedigree of the team, for the time being all players and games from either the 1837 or 1853 incarnations of the Gothams appear on the page of the 1837 team. http://fast.protoball.org/Gothams_Club_of_New_York

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
