National Association of Base Ball Players Champions: 1868

Member of the National Association of Base Ball Players (1858-1870), National Association 1871 to 1875. Member of National League in 1876.

Formed in 1857, the New York Mutuals team was formed too late to participate in the inaugural season of the first National Association. Originally the team shared its home games at Elysian Fields with teams like the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club. In 1868 they moved to the enclosed Union Grounds in Brooklyn where they would share home field with Atlantics and the Eckfords. The Mutuals were one of the founding teams in the National Association and later played in the National League. Due to financial difficulties, the team was not able to make the trip out west. As a result, the team was expelled from the league. The team's sole claim to fame in its brief stint in the National League, was the execution of the first triple play in a 28-3 loss to the Dark Blues of Hartford on May 13th.
