Nine Class Senior

The Washington National Republican, June 12, 1867 reports on a game between two "colored" clubs, with the Monumental beating the Alert 33-20. The Monumental is probably the Alexandria club of that name.

Same, July 9, 1867 reports that two "colored" clubs, the Alerts of DC and the Pythians of Philadelphia, recently played a match in Philadelphia.

The Alerts are mentioned in Morris, Base Ball Pioneers p. 266 as playing in 1869. Brunson says this club stated in 1866.

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.
