On Nov. 22, 1868, the Nashville Republican Banner published an article describing a women's base ball club, called the "Female Base Ball Club," or F.B.B.C. Details of the narrative are highly questionable, but the existence of the club in some form is plausible.
"Woman as a Base Baller: Startling Encroachments on the Sights of the Sterner Sex." Republican Banner [Nashville, TN]. 22 Nov., 1866: 3.
