Internet newspaper archives turn up a number of articles from the Syracuse NY Herald in the early 1900s on an indoor baseball team called the "Lefever Arms team" or the "Levever Arms Nine". Did Lefever Arms sponsor this baseball team? Does anyone have any info on this? For example, I found a February 1904 article from the Syracuse Herald about indoor baseball games involving the "Lefever Arms" team and the "Yale Rifles".

George Lefever and I have uncovered a number of articles from the Syracuse papers in the early 1900s about an "indoor baseball" team named the Lefever Arms or the Lefever Arms Nine. Does anyone know how far back the Lefever Arms Nine were playing ball? Any articles or other info about the team's playing pre-1900? Local industries and businesses sponsoring sports events and facilities is an old and continuing story, but this seems to be an unexplored bit of Lefever Arms history.
