The Rainiers are a crack club, and have won several well contested matches on their own ground. The Olympics will have to keep thier eyes about them when go into the field with such opponents.

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.
