Location San Antonio, TX, United States

The San Antonio Express, April 17, 1867 noted the formation of the Alamo Base Ball Club with 18 members. In November 1867 the Alamo played a game against the officers of the US Army garrison.

The San Antonio Express, Oct. 17, 1965 and the San Antonio Light, Feb. 13, 1898 give a lot of history of this early club. They say it was organized by banker J. S. Lockwood on April 21, 1867, and was the first organized club in the city. It played the garrison club Nov. 2, 1867 at the Alamo Plaza. The score was 24-16, but the newspapers (SAE 11-2, 11-11-67) didn't report who won.

Joseph Seaman Lockwood (1843-1926) grew up in New York City. He was a prominent banker in San Antonio.

This club may have disbanded, for the San Antonio Express Dec. 2, 1870 reports that  a (new?) "Alamo Base Ball 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.
