Seymour, "Baseball: The People's Game" vol. 3 p. 353: "Sailors from a flotilla of destroyers at Calcutta, India, in 1924 challenged and won over a  group of resident Yankees 3-2."

Calcutta is the former name of the modern Kolkata, one of India's largest cities. Note--A game had been played in Ceylon in 1889, and Kathmandu in 1889, when both of these were part of the British colony of India. But they aren't part of India today.

On Nov. 1,  1942 a US Army team played a team of local amateurs in Calcutta, winning 11-3. See Lowry, "Baseball's Longest Games", p. 104.

The Amateur Baseball Federation of India was established in Dec. 1983.
