According to M. Wright, The NABBP [page 40], the Washington Club of Hempstead, Long Island, was a member of the NABBP in 1859.

Hempstead is about 15 miles E of mid-Brooklyn NY. Thus, the Washington club may be the first base ball club in what is today Long Island.

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.
