Description <p>"The Young America Club will have <p>"The Young America Club will have their first game of Base Ball on Thursday, 30th, at the Red House [in Harlem].  The following are the names of the members of this Club:  George Bache, James Yardly, Jesse Lewis, John Wood, R. Sterling, W. Gantz, J. Taylor, K. Jewell, S. Smith, D. Blount, D Beach., H. Moer." </p> <p> Commentary from Richard Hershberger, 5/8/2013:</p> <p>The verb tenses notwithstanding, the date of that game was November 30.  I assume the press release was written before the game but published late.  I don't know if the game actually took place, or if the club ever met again.  I don't know of any subsequent mention of it, though this doesn't necessarily mean it didn't exist.  Some of those surnames pop up in later years.  I have never followed up on whether the first names match.  A surprising number of clubs formed in the late Fall, which would seem an unpropitious time of year for such things.  Do we count this club beyond 1854?  I guess not.  We have no evidence that they were active that year, any more than we do for the old Washington club the Knickerbockers played against in 1851 or so. [RH]</p> ayed against in 1851 or so. [RH]</p>
