The Quincy Daily Herald, June 24, 1866: "Base Ball. The first game of Base Ball ever played according to regulations in our city, came off yesterday at Alstyne's Prairie, before a large crowd of spectators."

The article doesn't give the names of the players or teams, but within 2 months the "Baltic" club was formally organized.
