Nick Name Delta
Earliest Known Date 1873
Location Delta, LA, United States
Description

The Donaldsonville Chief, May 17, 1873: "Madison [Parish]... the base ball epidemic as reached Delta." Delta, LA is in Madison Parish, across the river from Vicksburg MS.

The Vicksburg Daily Commercial, July 5, 1877, reports: “Delta young men propose to organize a base-ball club, with Prof. Lackey, of this city, as leader.”

Delta LA is a village (pop. about 230) across the Mississippi from Vickburg MS. Is this the area the newspaper meant to cite?
