The San Francisco Daily Evening Bulletin, Nov. 22, 1866 says the Virginia and Northwestern Clubs are to play a match game for the Virginia City city championship on Nov. 29th.

Virginia City NV (1860 pop. about 2,300; 1870 pop. about 7,000; ) is about 10 miles NE of Carson City. Its current pop is about 850.

Wikipedia: "Gold Hill is a community in Storey County, Nevada, located just south and downhill of Virginia City . . . . Prosperity was sustained for a period of 20 years between 1868 and 1888 by mining the Comstock Lode, a major deposit of silver ore. . . . The Gold Hill post office remained in operation until 1943. Today Gold Hill exists as a shell of its former self; its population in 2005 was 191."

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.
