From the Rockland County Journal, May 3, 1856:
"Organization of a Base Ball Club at Piermont. At a meeting held in Piermont on the 17 ult., for the purpose of organizing a Base Ball Club, Isaac D. Blauvelt was appointed president, and Edward Haring secretary, pro tem. After various propositions, the name of BELDING BASE BALL CLUB OF PIERMONT, was unanimously adopted. Officers for the currant [sic] year we [sic] then chosen, as follows: Richard Wandle, President: Reuben R. Carr, Vice President: Edward Hering, secretary: Henry Hoffman, Treasurer: Henry L. Belding, A. V. Wandle, and Isaac D. Baluvelt, Directors. The regularly appointed playing days are Wednesdays and Saturdays.
"This is the first club of this kind organized in this County, and we should be pleased to find it leading to similar organizations in our other villages. A similar club in Nyack might be made productive of much innocent and healthful amusement, and by playing against each other, the clubs of Rockland County might soon be able to compete with some of the best clubs around New York in what now has become one of the most fashionable games of the day. What say you young gentlemen, shall we have more Base Ball Clubs?"

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.
