The Los Angeles Star, Saturday, April 7, 1860: "The Base Ball Club of this city was duly organized this week, by the election of officers, adoption of constitution, by-laws, &c. On Wednesday afternoon [April 4], they had a fine time of it, and on Monday next they will again take the field."

Same, April 21, 1860, page 2: "Foot and Base Ball...The Base Ball Club is, of course, in flourishing condition--the members always eager for a hand. They have had several days exercise, and the game is becoming popular..."
