The Louisville Courier, March 31, 1859 has an ad for a meeting of the Eclipse BBC. [ba]
"On Thursday last the Eclipse Base Ball Club - which, by the way, is a Club of no mean consequence - divided itself for the purpose of having a little game between its married and its single members. A large number of persons, of both sexes, were in attendance, and despite the excessively hot weather, seemed to enjoy the sport hugely. The Benedicks, of course, were victorious." [gp]

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.
