From Protoball Entry #1845.2 – Knicks Play First Recorded [Intramural] Game By The New Rules

In their first intrasquad game, seven Knickerbocker players (captained by Duncan Curry) win 11-8 over seven of their fellows (captained by Alexander Cartwright); the umpire is William R. Wheaton, a pioneering cricket and base ball player of the New York Base Ball Club who helped to formulate the Knickerbocker rules. This three-inning game is the first recorded game employing the Knickerbocker rules as drafted on September 23, 1845.

Another intramural game was played on November 18.
