The 1912 New York Knickerbockers season was the first and only season for the club. They folded with the United States Baseball League after about a month of play.

Regular season[edit]

Of the few individual game results known from that season, it is known that on opening day, May 1, 1912, the Knickerbockers battled with Reading to a 10-10 tie in 10 innings, the game was called due to darkness.[2] New York eventually ended up last in the USBL standings.
