The Washington, DC Evening Star, June 13, 1870: "The American game of "Base Ball" has been instituted at Dingwall, Scotland." Dingwall was then a seaport in extreme northern Scotland. To the same end, the New London [CT] Democrat, June 25, 1870: "Scotland announces the introduction there of "the American game of base ball." We pity Scotland." and the Springfield [MA] Republican, Aug. 19, 1870: "Base-ball is popular in Scotland."

Many of the Dingwall players were local, including one who had just returned from the US.
