Nick Name O.K. Club
Earliest Known Date Friday, August 26, 1870
Location Chicago, IL, United States
Nine Class Senior

This club is known only via a side-reference in a Chicago newspaper: 

"There are two Continental Clubs in Chicago, and much confusion and annoyance has resulted in consequence.  The Secretary of one of the clubs makes the following request: 'The Continentals which beat the O.K.s would like to have the Secretary of the Continentals who whjo were beaten by the Rosettes send his address to L. Kuhrman (?) 185 North Clark Street.  Our object is to settle who shall call themselves the Continentals, both clubs, probably, being unaware of the fact that there exist two clubs in this city bearing the same name.'"





Chicago Tribune, August 26, 1870.

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.
