Location Cincinnati, OH, United States

"Base Ball. The first game, by the newly organized Club, was played on Walnut Hills, last Friday. There were nine players on a side, and the contest is said to have been an exciting and spirited affair, but as we have not been furnished with the score, we cannot lay it before the curious in such matters. A gentleman who was present at the game, and who is well posted in base ball and cricket, declares that the play would not have disgraced the celebrated New York Club. The players adopted the manly and scientific method of catching the ball without waiting for it to touch the ground, the same system adopted by the majority of cricketers. The Club will play another match game upon the same ground, some day this week."

Cincinnati Daily Commercial, 26 July 1858

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.
