From Protoball Entry #1856.21 – Trenton Club Forms for "Invigorating Amusement"

"BASE BALL CLUB. – A number of gentlemen of this city have formed themselves into a club for the practice of the invigorating amusement of Base Ball. Their practicing ground is on the common east of the canal. We hope that this will be succeeded by a Cricket Club."

"Base Ball Club," Trenton (NJ) State Gazette (May 26, 1856) no page provided. Contributed by John Maurath, Missouri Civil War Museum at Historic Jefferson Barracks, 1/18/2008.

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.
