Location San Francisco, CA, United States
Nine Class Senior

The New York Clipper, March 20, 1858: "A Club entitled the San Francisco Base Ball Club has been formed in that city, and the following gentlemen chosen officers: R. Robinson Jr., President; D. W. Crane, Vice President; H. Van Pelt, Secretary; Chas. P. Plummer, Treasurer; D. Driscoll, Corresponding Secretary."

Given the slowness of communication from California to New York in those days, this club may have been formed in 1857.

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.
