On July 3, 1869, the Stonewalls of Newport, Jackson County, played the Independents of Batesville, Independence County. The game only lasted three innings, with the Batesville team winning thirty-two to three. The captain of the Stonewalls complained that the pitcher for the Independents threw too hard!
