The New York Clipper, July 19, 1856, under the heading "Base Ball," reports that the Washington Club lost to the American Club of Buffalo 50-37 "at an excursion to Alden, for an oyster supper."

Alden is just east of Buffalo.

In 1859 the American club merged with the Frontier Club, under the latter's name. See the Buffalo Express, Aug. 20, 1859

Presumably the Washington Club was also from Buffalo.

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.
