"The Newburghs was the name of the first base ball club of a representative character. . . . Their particular rivals were the Highlands, of New Windsor . . . . The ball grounds of the Newburghs were in the field at the corner of South and Johnston Streets. The home plate was in the shade of a willow tree at the south end."
J. Nutt, compiler, Newburgh: Her Institutions, Industries Leading Citizens (Ritchie and Hull, Newburgh, 1891), page 328.

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.
