Nick Name Accidental
Earliest Known Date August 1875
Location Little Rock, AR, United States

The Arkansas Gazette revealed the members of the Little Rock base ball clubs. Bruce Allardice checked available census reports to determine if they were local players.

Of the five directors of the "Accidental" team, four (Frank Compton, Will Field, Al Wassell, and G. F. Kirkwood) were born in Arkansas, and the fifth, Geo R. Brown, was a New York born reporter. The club itself seems all Arkansas-born in the 1850s. Thus, native southerners were playing the Association game in 1875 if not before.
