"The Washington Club of Bay City [MI] was founded in 1865 by a gentleman named A. C. Maxwell. The Washingtons had a good level of success in their first season, and found themselves victorious in matches against the Capital Club of Lansing. They defeated the Capitals both in Lansing, and in a return engagement in Bay City where the home town boys would hold off the gentlemen from Lansing 30-29.
"In 1866 the boys from Bay City found themselves to be the first club to challenge the Detroit Base Ball Club for the State Championship. Detroit won, 40-13.]"
Bay City MI [1860 pop. about 1600, 1870 pop. about 7000] is at the foot of Saginaw Bay, and is about 75 miles NE of Lansing and about about 100 miles N of Detroit.
