The Aurora Ball Club played a game of "base ball" in Sept. 1853 against the Olympic. See games tabulation. They probably played under the MA rules, or variant.
The Boston Herald, Sept. 18, 1854 reports that the "Aurora Ball Club" has 60 members, who exercise on the Commons in the morning with "games of bat and ball."

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.
