Brooklyn Excelsiors

From BR Bullpen

The Brooklyn Excelsiors were an early amateur baseball team, orginally formed in 1854. Picture of Excelsiors with Knickerbockers in 1859

The Excelsiors, in their history, featured such famous players as Jim Creighton, Asa Brainard, and Candy Cummings.

The Excelsiors made a famous tour in 1860 around New York and to big cities in other states, and according to Al Spalding, that tour (which was followed in the press) inspired thousands of young men.
