The 1859 Hoboken Base Ball Club (EST: 2012)

The Hoboken Base Ball Club was a club that appeared in Hoboken in 1859 playing competitively on Elysian Fields.  The current club plays baseball using the same 19th century rules as the 1859 club.   The club uses 19th century equipment and plays against other 19th Century clubs across the United States.  The club is sponsored by the Hoboken Historical Museum and The Shannon.  The club's mission is to promote the history of the game and show how it was played during its formative years.  The club calls home in the same city where the game itself made a very special beginning.
