Nick Name Nationals
Earliest Known Date Tuesday, November 29, 1859
Location Washington, DC, United States
Description

"In the fall of 1859, two separate groups of government workers met in Washington and formed the area's first base baseball clubs, the Potomac and the Nationals."

Morris, Base Ball Pioneers, p. 271, says the Nationals informally played starting May of 1859 but didn't formally organize as the Nationals until Nov. 29th.

In 1864, the National Club was a member of the NABBP. M. Wright, The NABBP, page 93.

Washington's population in 1860 was about 75,000. It was the 14th largest city in the US.

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.
