On July 3, 1869, the Stonewalls of Newport, Jackson County, played the Independents of Batesville, Independence County. The game only lasted three innings, with the Batesville team winning thirty-two to three. The captain of the Stonewalls complained that the pitcher for the Independents threw too hard!

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.
