According to the Kansas City Times (April 28, 1927), article titled "First Team a Knockout: Old Timers Recall Antelopes' Debut here in 1866," and online sources, the third game of a series between the Antelopes of KC and the Pomeroys of Atchison, was played in KC Aug. 12, 1866. Western legend Wild Bill Hickok was chosen an umpire, in the hope that his pistol prowess would keep the crowd controlled. The home team won 48 to 28. It should be noted that more modern research suggests that Hickok did not umpire this game.
Kansas City MO (1860 pop. about 4500; 1870 pop. about 32,250)is on the Kansas border and about 270 miles W of St. Louis.
