Description

Boston Traveler, May 2, 1857 mentions a practice game of this club.

We think this club played only the Massachusetts game.

See the game accounts from 1853, 1855 and 1856. Earliest match game is reported in the  Boston Daily Bee, Sept. 8, 1853. [ba]

There was an intersquad game played by this club on the Commons, July 4, 1853. It was 10 a side, denominated "bass ball." See Boston Daily Bee, July 2, 1853 [db find, entered by ba].

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.
