"Base Ball -- This very interesting game, which is so popular in this country, is being played every evening upon the West Park by the Racine Club. Base ball is a noble game -- very exciting -- great deal of fun playing it . . . ."

"A match game took place took place the following week between the club's first and second nines. Racine Journal of October 3, 1866 describes the game as 'a very good game, considering the short time the club has been organized."

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.

Michael Epstein, "A Yaller Kivered Game. New York Style Baseball comes to Racine," NINE, Fall 2007, pp. 10-20, has more on this 1866 game and how the local newspaper covered baseball. The newspaper account mentions "Upham" as having sprained his ankle in the game. This is probably future governor William H. Upham (1841-1924)
