The Daybreak Club of Jackson is the first club listed in Jackson County MI in Peter Morris' Baseball Fever (2003).

Morris et al. "Baseball Pioneers' has a section on this club, which played 3 games in 1860.

The 1863 Michigan State Directory, p. 358 says this club formed in 1860, and plays on the "old race ground, near western limits."

Jackson MI (1860 pop. 5,000) is is about 70 miles W of Detroit and about 35 miles W of Ann Arbor MI.


A 1937 newspaper article claimed that a baseball game was played in Jackson on July 4, 1845. No source for this is given. See Morris, "Baseball Fever," citing the Jackson Citizen Patriot, Sept. 19. 1937

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.
