The Juneau "Daily Alaska Dispatch" January 12, 1909: "Valdez has also suffered from an attack of baseball fever..." The baseball team evidently created a ball diamond last year, and are now raising funds to improve it. Same March 31, 1911: "The Valdez baseball team has reorganized..."
In 1903 Valdez was reported as organizing a baseball team. See Skagway's Daily Morning Alaska, June 30, 1903. Same Sept. 28, 1904 reports that a team from Cos. E and F, 3rd Infantry, defeated a team from Valdez 11-2 in a 5-inning game played at the town. See also same, June 6, 1904.
Valdez teams often played the nines of nearby Fort Liscum. Cf same, June 27, 1907. A photo of Valdez playing Fort Liscum during this era is online.
Valdez AK (1910 pop. about 800) is about 150 miles E of Anchorage. It was incorporated in 1901.
