The New Albany Daily Ledger, Feb. 9, 1861, reports that "A number of young men have organized a base ball club..." and play practice games on the commons.

See also Endres, Base Ball in a River Town (2016), which cites a newspaper column of April 1862 saying a town ball club was being formed in New Albany.
