Description

Sacramento Daily Union, Volume 18, Number 2694, 15 November 1859

Sacramento Base Ball Club.— A Base Ball Club under the above name, to be conducted under the rules of the New York Clubs, recently adopted, was organized in this city last evening by a number of our young men. The following

is a list of the officers elected : President, Chas. T. Leonard ; Vise President, W. H. Lee ; Secretary, John E. Isaac ; Treasurer, E. B. Mott. We hope that other Clubs of the same description will be organized, so that there may be some competition. The exercise attendant on the fame is sufficient to commend it to the favorable notice of all our young men.

"Sacramento can lay claim to the first active ballclub in the state: the Sacramento Base Ball Club, established in the closing months of 1859.  This development caused feathers to be ruffled all over San Francisco, where a local newspaper wondered how Sacramento could have beaten California's largest city to the punch.  Within days the San Francisco Base Ball Club was born."

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.
