Description

The Cheyenne Leader, April 30, 1868, printed a letter "From Fort Fetterman, April 17, 1868...a big base ball match was played a few weeks since, resulting in favor of the Accomodation Club over the Laramie Club." Presumably the two teams were made up of the soldiers at the post, and/or the post sutlers, Indian agents, etc.

From Wikipedia: "Fort Fetterman was a wooden fort constructed in 1867 by the United States Army on the Great Plains frontier in the Dakota Territory approximately 11 miles northwest of present-day Douglas, Wyoming."

Douglas WY is about 55 miles E of Casper WY. Laramie WY is about 125 miles S of Douglas.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
