The Kansas City Star, June 4, 1908, ran a reminiscence article headlined: "We had a great team in '66. The Antelopes then were the pride of the base ball fans." The Kansas City Journal, Oct. 22, 1893, lists the Antelopes as the first baseball club in that city.

The Kansas City Times April 13, 1964 reports that the Antelope Club was organized July, 1866 with attorney D. S. Twitchell as president. Same Deatherage, "Early History of Greater Kansas City" p. 544.

The New York Clipper, Sept. 22, 1866 gives a box score, with players names, of a game on the 7th between the Antelopes and the Hope. 

Kansas City MO's 1860 pop. was about 4400, and its 1870 pop. was about 32,250.
