An article in True West Magazine states that baseball was played here in 1873.

The [Denver] Rocky Mountain News, March 10, 1884: "New Mexico--Silver City is suffering from the base ball mania."

Mesilla Valley Democrat, Sept. 2, 1887, has a long article about a game in Silver City between the "fats" and the "leans" of that town.

Silver City was founded in 1870.
