The Yankton Union and Dakotian, July 7, 1870, says the Sioux City White Caps recently beat the Railroad Club of Cherokee, 78-41.
We are uncertain as to the location of this game. There is a Sioux City IA, and a North Sioux City SD (and,for good measure, a South Sioux City NE), but no Sioux City SD. North Sioux City SD has a current population of about 2500.
"Cherokee" does not appear to be the name of a SD location, but there is a Cherokee IA (1870 pop. about 440)and it's about 50 miles NE of all three Sioux Cities.

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.
