Description

From William Humber's "Early Baseball in Canada" manuscript, 9/14/12:

The earliest formal baseball organization in Canada appears to be the Hamilton Young Canadians (later Maple Leafs) established in April 1854, playing on grounds between Bond Street (today’s Park Street) and Bowry (today’s Bay Street South) near the site of the newly built Central School. The team as described in the city’s directory of 1862-63 indicates that William Shuttleworth was President. Born in either 1833 or 1834 he is listed in census records as a salesman and owned a dry goods business until retiring in 1883. He later moved to Geneva, New York to live with his son James, and died there in 1903. James listed in the 1881 census as William’s 10 year old son was no doubt named after William’s late brother Jim, a fellow baseball enthusiast, who according to Bryan D. Palmer in Culture in Conflict had died in 1869 and was paraded to his grave site by his fellow shoemakers and other working-class men.

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.
