Early teams

Despite (or perhaps because of) its reputation as a tourist area, Atlantic City historically has never enjoyed much success as a venue for professional sports teams. Baseball has been no exception. The city hosted a few short-lived, unnamed teams in various leagues in the 19th century, then provided a home for the defunct Lancaster Red Roses of the Tri-State League in 1912. The franchise played one more season in Atlantic City in 1913 before disbanding. The Lancaster Red Roses was among dozens of semi-professional baseball teams that participated in the Tri-State League in the early 20th century. ...


Bacharach Giants

In 1916, the Bacharach Giants came to town. Originally the Duval Giants, playing in Jacksonville, Florida, they moved to Atlantic City in 1916, where they assumed the name of Bacharach Giants after the city's mayor, Harry Bacharach. They were independent from 1916 to 1922 and from 1930 to 1933, members of the Eastern Colored League from 1923 to 1928, affiliated with the American Negro League in 1929, and spent their last season in the Negro National League in 1932. They won two pennants with the leadership of Dick Lundy and such excellent players as Oliver Marcelle, Smokey Joe Williams, John Henry Lloyd (AKA "Pop" Lloyd), and Arthur "Rats" Henderson. The Bacharach Giants played in the Eastern Colored League from 1923 to the league's folding during the 1928 season, winning the league in 1926 and 1927. They continued in the American Negro League in 1929 and were independent until they folded as a professional team in 1932.
