Description

"A Record of the Principal Sports at Hongkong and the Open Ports..." (1877) p. 232 gives the roster of the Tokio [sic] BBC, M. M. Scott, president. They played the Yokahama BBC Oct. 14, 1876 on the grounds of the "Kaisei Gokko" in Tokio. Tokio won 27-19. A joint Tokio/Yokahama team played a team of the officers of the US Naval vessels Tennessee, Kearsarge and Yantic Sept. 2, 1876, the "Shore" beating the "Fleet" 29-26.

This appears to be a tam of Americans residing in Japan. The first Japanese baseball team, the Shinbashi Athletic Club Athletics were organized in 1878 by railway engineer Hiroshi Hiraoka, an ardent Boston Red Sox fan from his days as a student in the United States. He organized the first Japanese baseball team, the Shinbashi Athletic Club Athletics.
