A concise log of the games of the Atwaters appears in Daniel Genovese, The Old Ball Ground: The Chronological History of Westfield Baseball (Infinity, , 2004), pages 27-41.

Historian Brian Turner, in The Hurrah Game, is credited for first noting that the Atwaters played by the New York game rules, as noted in game summaries: "The [Atwater] game is played according to the standard rules of the New York clubs, and is therefore, altogether different from the base ball common in this state."
