Awaiting Review
Nick Name Gandolfos
Earliest Known Date 1901
Location Dawson, Yukon, Canada
Nine Class Senior

"Little else about baseball appeared in Dawson’s newspapers until 1901. That July, the local Gandolfos – along with many townspeople – journeyed down the Yukon River via steamboat to Eagle, Alaska. There a team from Fort Egbert, a recently-created U.S. Army headquarters, awaited them. The Dawson team, named after merchant Joseph Gandolfo, romped. A week later, on Friday, August 2, the Gandolfos hosted a re-match"


"In May 1903 residents formed the Dawson Baseball League for the coming season. The circuit consisted of four teams: the Civil Service (Canadian government officials), Gandolfos (again backed by Joseph Gandolfo), Amaranths (a social club), and Ye Idyle Hours (another social club, mostly American)."

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.
