Excelsior Club Forms in Brooklyn

Salience Noteworthy
Game Base Ball
Age of Players Adult

The Excelsior Club is organized "to improve, foster, and perpetuate the American game of Base Ball, and advance morally, socially and physically the interests of its members." Its written constitution, Seymour notes, is very similar in wording to the Knickerbocker constitution.



Constitution and By-Laws of the Excelsior Base Ball Club of Brooklyn, 1854. Per Seymour, Harold - Notes in the Seymour Collection at Cornell University, Kroch Library Department of Rare and Manuscript Collections, collection 4809.
