Ducey, "The Rajah..."  pp. 4-5, 22, says baseball came to Calgary in 1884. As proof he cites the June 9, 1884 Calgary Herald, which reported on a game between the city police force and citizens, won by the former 31-28.

That baseball was played there in 1884 is confirmed in the Calgary Weekly Herald, Sept. 3, 1884, which under "Personals" notes that: "A. Bisch [who left Calgary for Toronto] "will be particularly missed by the base ball club."

Calgary was founded in 1884. The Canadian Pacific RR didn't reach the site of Calgary until 1883.
