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 1864 rules as the original 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. 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.
