The St. Paul (MN) Globe July 31, 1885 reports that Watertown played Marshall Minnesota a game recently and, thinking the umpiring was a farce, demands a rematch.

Same, Sept. 19, 1887 reports that Watertown claims the championship of the Dakotas, having beaten the Fargo club, champs of North Dakota. Watertown won 34 of 40 games this year against teams from Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota, under coach/3b James Cantillion (Cantillon?).

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader, Sept. 14, 1887: "Watertown still continues to be the base ball Mecca." Same, Aug. 10, 1887 reports that a  Red River Valley Base Ball league is forming, with teams from Fargo, Grand Forks, Fergus Falls and Wahpetoe. Watertown, Aberdeen and Huron will join later.

Watertown was founded in 1879.
