☞ BASE BALL.—A match game of base ball between the Liberty Club, of this city and the Union Club, of Lansingburgh, will be played next Thursday on the Putnam grounds, Northeast of the University. All lovers of the game should be present.
Around 1868 this club began to be known as the Haymakers of Troy. It appears that Troy business people helped finance the club, and several of its members had played for Troy clubs. The Haymakers were a major player in baseball 1868-72 and in fact were part of the first professional baseball league. Some sources have this club playing as early as 1861. See Morris, "Base Ball Pioneers" for more. [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.
