The Greensboro (NC) Record, May 16, 1923, reports that a Paramount film company making a film in San Jose, Costa Rica, "played two games of baseball with the city team, winning one and losing one." From this it appears that San Jose already had baseball. Costa Rica hosted the Central American "Olympics" at the end of 1924, which included matches of baseball. According to the Spanish language "Prensa" of NYC, January 8, 1925, under the headline "Los Atletas de Los EE", the Nicaraguan team at these Olympics beat a team of US sailors. The article gives the names of the Nicaraguan team, and does not mention teams of other countries.
