1844 Magnolia

Magnolia Base Ball Club Invitation

2 Comments

Do you know of any evidence that the Eagle Club was at Elysian Fields prior to the Magnolia & NY Base Ball Clubs?

Nope. The early Eagles appear to have played uptown, at the Red House Grounds, Second Avenue and 105th Street. By 1854 they had moved their playing grounds to Hoboken.
