An account of the base ball career of Scranton banker James Linen states:
"It is not known if he played any ball during [Civil] war time but when the conflict came to an end and soon after establishing himself in Scranton, the 25 year old former [Newark]Eureka pitcher helped organize the Wyoming club on May 6, 1865 with a bunch of local businessmen.
"The first match of the Wyomings came against the Susquehanna Club of Wilkes Barre."
The club took on the Athletic BBC of Philadelphia in 1866, losing 49-4. That year the club's name changed to the Scranton BBC. It disbanded in 1870.
