Description

"The first newspaper mention of organized baseball in New Orleans is of a game played July 29, 1859, between two nines (teams) of the Louisiana Base Ball Club. The sides started at 4 o’clock, and the nines could only complete four innings before darkness postponed the play, which was completed a few days later." New Orleans Times-Picayune, July 29, Aug. 3, 1859.  Bruce Allardice, "The Inauguration of this Noble and Manly Game Among us. The Spread of Baseball in the South Prior to 1870," Base Ball, Fall 2012.

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.
