Troy is located in eastern New York state, on the east bank of the Hudson River, 5 miles north of Albany, NY and 10 miles south-east of Schenectady, NY. Together, these three cities form the Tri-City metropolitan area.

Baseball started early in Troy, with the Troy Victorys already in existence in 1860. In 1861, a team from Troy and a team from nearby Lansingburgh merged to form the Unions. The Unions played before the Civil War and then were highly successful after the war.

Troy not only fielded a team in 1871 in the National Association, but before playing against Association teams it contested against another Troy team, the Putnams. A team from Lansingburgh played ball in 1878 and became the Troy National League entry in 1879. Main source: When Troy was a Major League City
