The Troy Trojans were a Major League Baseball team in the National League for four seasons from 1879 to 1882. Their home games were played at Putnam Grounds (1879), Haymakers' Grounds (1880-1881), and Troy Ball Clubs Grounds (1882), all in the upstate New York city of Troy. Overall, the franchise won 131 games and lost 194. They were disbanded after the 1882 season. In 1883 the New York Gothams, later becoming the New York and San Francisco Giants, took the Trojans' place in the National League, with nearly half of the original Gotham players members of the disbanded Trojans.
Notable players for the Trojans included Hall of Famers Dan Brouthers, Roger Connor, Buck Ewing, Tim Keefe, and Mickey Welch.
