Canadian Encyclopedia, article on Baseball, says baseball came to Winnipeg in 1874. The Winnipeg Free Press, July 6, 1874: "Base Ball--The Selkirk Cricket Club will in a few days test the ability of the Garry Base Ball Club to play the game of the latter." This newspaper for 1874 contains various other mentions of this Garry BBC.
