Location Wilmington, DE, United States

The Diamond State Base Ball Club was organized in Wilmington, Delaware, on October 2, 1865 in the office of attorney and first club president, Levi C. Bird.

The Diamond State Club of Wilmington, Delaware, is listed on page 507 in The Book of American Pastimes, by Charles Peverly. The delegates to the National Convention were S.H. Edgar and W.D. Mendenhall.

The modern Diamond State Baseball Club has a website which has lots on the history of this club. It says the home grounds in 1866 were at the Northwest corner of Delaware Avenue and Adams Street (near the cemetery). The next year the home grounds were at the terminus of the city railway (see Wawasset grounds).

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.
