According to the autobiography of classical scholar Ernest Sihler, the Alerts were one of two clubs active at Concordia Gymanasium, a Fort Wayne educational institution. Sihler says baseball came to Fort Wayne in the autumn of 1865. Sihler left Concordia in 1869 to continue his education in St. Louis. Sihler himself was the Alerts' center fielder.
