The first ref we have to a Cazenovia club comes from a Syracuse paper's brief August 1 report on a game between Cazenovia and the Syracuse BBC. Cazenovia won, 32-20.
Cazenovia NY is about 17 miles SE of Syracuse. Its population in 1860 was about 4300.

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.
