Here are --beginning at the linked section of each User's WP home page--
three extraordinary compilations
of material that is useful for the editor's own reference.
It may or may not be useful to scroll up and skim all the Contents of those pages.
The three users happen to be unusually (not to say surprisingly now that you have visited) productive editors in english wikipedia territory that are far from each other, far from baseball. They are also far from {economics, geography, history, politics, society}; {archeology, architecture, conservation, monuments, parks}; and {astronomy, biology, chemistry, medicine, physics, psychology}!

Harvard–Yale Regatta

"Hurrah for the Shoes". Harper's Weekly. July 27, 1878.
[[8]] John Adler, Publisher, HarpWeek

On This Day

Competition from 1715 UK, 1760s NEng whale boats
1852 corporate sponsorship
1858/59 Harvard, Yale, Brown, and Trinity formed the College Regatta Association. In 1859, the first regatta was held on the Connecticut River before a crowd of 15-20,000, and Harvard emerged victorious.
1870 The Harvard-Yale competitions continued until 1870 when an accusation that the Harvard crew had fouled the Yale boat provoked fighting among the 15,000 spectators.
In 1869, the Harvard crew generated considerable publicity when it traveled to England to compete against Oxford on the Thames River. The race was telegraphed back by the new transatlantic cable. Although Harvard lost by six seconds, it demonstrated that American rowers could compete well against the more experienced British.
1871 ... It also inspired the formation in 1871 of the first intercollegiate athletic association in the United States, the Rowing Association of American Colleges.
1871 The original members of the Rowing Association were Harvard, Brown, Bowdoin, and Massachusetts Agriculture College (later, the University of Massachusetts). Yale, still upset over the previous year's controversy with Harvard, refused to join.

also who has won most in one year?

careers of NABBP players


National Association of Base Ball Players

major leaguers who played for leading clubs (itemized in the table, column "list of mlb'ers")
extended rosters for some leading teams (itemized in the table, column "rosters of featured teams")
/NABBP data by Marshall Wright

This table covers all professional league clubs for 1869 to 1872, marked 'x' or 'pro' in the corresponding columns, 1869-70 for the old Association on the left and 1871-72 for the new Association on the right ('pro' distinguishes professional teams that did not participate in the Association pennant race). The table also covers all members of the old NABBP who later joined the new NAPBBP (only one is distinct from the 1869 to 1872 pros, the Resolute club of Elizabeth NJ that joined the pro Association in 1873). The 17 sometime pro members of the old Association (NABBP) are listed alphabetically above a divider; at right the table provides navigation to information about the careers of players from those 17 clubs only. The other five clubs, listed below the divider, merely provide some context for the featured clubs. Data in the "later" column imply the 1873 status for all of the listed clubs: five pro members from 1872 continued in 1873, six went out of business, two members of the old Association joined (from Baltimore and Elizabeth). There were other new members in 1873, however, who are not in the table.
