The Selma Times Argus, Dec. 23, 1870 mentions a Demopolis BBC.

The Birmingham Iron Age, August 17, 1875, reports on a game “last Wednesday” at Demopolis between a Mississippi team and the Demopolis club, won by the Mississippi team 15 to 14, for the championship of the two states.

Demopolis AL (pop. about 7500 now, about 1500 in the 1870s)is about 100 miles SW of Birmingham and about 35 miles E of the Mississippi border.

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.
