Carlson, "Amarillo. The Story of a Western Town," p. 70: "As early as 1899 Amarillo schoolboys hosted a pair of baseball games against a team from Childress ...Less than a month later, in July, the Amarillo team hosted a series of games against Roswell [NM]."

Roswell is the county seat of Chaves County. It was founded in 1871, but remained tiny until the railroad reached there in 1893. The Roswell team mentioned above might have been the team of the New Mexico Military Institute. This school fielded a baseball team that often won the New Mexico amateur championship in the first decade of the 20th Century, and is known to have played in Amarillo.
