How did Baseball come to New York?  Are our “Subway Contenders”, the Yankees and Mets all there ever was to New York baseball?  Baseball in New York started in the mid 1800’s with a team affectionately called the New York Knickerbocker Nine (they were also the very first baseball team in the U.S. )  Does that name ring a bell?  Including the Knickerbocker Nine, New York City saw SEVEN major baseball teams.
