Nick Name White Caps
Earliest Known Date 1870
Location Sioux City, IA, United States
Modern Address Sioux City
Nine Class Senior

The Yankton Union and Dakotian, July 7, 1870, says the Sioux City White Caps recently beat the Railroad Club of Cherokee, 78-41.

We are uncertain as to the location of this game. There is a Sioux City IA, and a North Sioux City SD (and,for good measure, a South Sioux City NE), but no Sioux City SD. North Sioux City SD has a current population of about 2500.

"Cherokee" does not appear to be the name of a SD location, but there is a Cherokee IA (1870 pop. about 440)and it's about 50 miles NE of all three Sioux Cities.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
