“It is believed that one of the earliest games [of baseball] was played in Cokesbury, near Greenwood, in 1873. A Prosperity club, near Newberry, was organized the following year.” Thomas K. Perry, Textile League Baseball: South Carolina’s Mill Teams, 1880-1955 (2004), p. 6.

The Charleston News & Courier, Aug. 10, 1874 reprots that the Newberry BBC played the "White Stockings" at Newberry on the 31st.

Newberry SC (1880 pop. about 2300) is about 40 miles NW of Columbia SC.
