Location Fairfield, IA, United States

In 1867, baseball swept over Iowa. In May, it reached Fairfield, where it was enthusiastically received. After some preliminary meetins, on the 24th, the Jefferson Base Ball Club was organized. The officers were: Dr. J.M. Shaffer, president; W.W. Junkin, vice president; John R. Shaffer, secretary; T.F. Higley, treasurer; and W.N. Stephens, G.W. Phelps and Galon Baker, directors. The first game was played the next day.

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.
