1860.56 – Three Hartford CT Base Ball Clubs on the Move

The Alligator, Rough and Ready, and Independent Base Ball Clubs announced meetings on a late October day. Hartford Daily Courant, October 27, 1860. Accessed via subscription search, May 21, 2009.

We do not know if these clubs played by Association rules.

Query: Hartford was wicket country; do we know of any earlier base ball clubs in the area?

The Hartford Courant, May 19, 1860 reports that last evening at the City Hotel, the Independent BBC organized, and elected W. O. Sherwood as president. The club will play a game this evening "on Lafayette St.--old battle ground."

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.
