The Oneida Sachem, August 1859, reports that the following local bbcs have been formed: 

Peterboro, Cazenovia, Canastota, Chittenango, Munnsville, Oneida, and Mechanics of Chittenango, with the De Ruyter club about to be formed.

This issue reports on an Aug. 18, 1859 game between Syracuse and Canastota, won by Syracuse 44-38.  (See Morris, "Base Ball Pioneers," p. 72 for more on this game. This dates the issue of the Sachem).

The Sachem further reports that I. N. Messinger was elected president of the club, and that an intersquad game was played between Ferry's and Morris' nines. [ba]

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.
