In early 1867 the Tallahassee Semi-Weekly Floridian noted the formation of the Leon Base Ball Club, which has "sent North and procured Bats and Balls and instructions how to use them. A few evenings since, they repaired to their play ground in the suburbs of the city, and engaged in their first game."
Tallahassee, the capitol of Florida, is in Leon County. It had 2023 residents in 1870, making it the 4th largest city in the state.
