The Harrisburg Pennsylvania Daily Telegraph, June 28, 1862: "Base Ball Club--a number of our leading citizens met at the depot of the Pennsylvania railroad, in this city, last evening, and organized a base ball club, by electing the following officers: President, Samuel D. Young..."

Same, Aug. 21, 1862 reports that recently the Keystone Club of Harrisburg defeated the Mountain Club of Altoona. Gives a box score. Said elsewhere to be the first base ball game played in PA outside Philadelphia [which is not true].

The Keystone Club of Harrisburg PA is listed in Peverelly [1866].
