Awaiting Review
Nick Name Las Cruces
Earliest Known Date 1884
Location Las Cruces, NM, United States
Nine Class Senior

The Rio Grande Republican, Dec. 13, 1884, reports that "a hurriedly picked nine of Las Cruces", only recently organized, lost to a visiting El Paso club 41-14.

The Mesilla Valley Democrat, Sept. 21, 1888, mentions a game between the "Las Cruces club" and a picked nine.

Las Cruces was settled in 1849, but didn't "take off" as a town (nearby Mesilla dwarfed it) until the railroad arrived in 1881. It is likely that baseball arrived in the area earlier than 1884.
