New York Clipper, July 13, 1867: "The Santa Fe Club of Santa Fe, N.M., played a practice game lately, when Wheelock's side beat Keating's by a tally of 24 to 16."

The New York Clipper, April 23, 1870, under the headline "Base Ball and other Sports in New Mexico," reprints a letter from a Santa Fe resident claiming "We have a good base ball club, having in the composition some known to a few of your readers.." such as "Jim McKenzie" of Peoria and "Charlie Martin" of Washington. The letter claims that this club has played games, and is the champion of the territory.

The Santa Fe Daily New Mexican, Aug. 22, 1872, says a base ball game will be played next Saturday. "It is nearly a year since the last game was played here." Same Aug. 30 reports on this match game between the military and the citizens.

As of August 2012, this club appears to be the first formed in New Mexico.

In 1870, Santa Fe's population was about 4,800.

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.
