The Arizona Sentinel [Yuma], April 22, 1876, says the Yuma City BBC played a game last Saturday against a team from Fort Yuma, California.

Fort Yuma operated from 1858 to 1883. It's location is across the Colorado "River" about about 5 miles from from Yuma AZ. Wiki sayeth: "The depot was used by the Army to store and distribute supplies for all military posts in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Texas during the Indian War period. A six-month supply of clothing, food, ammunition, and other goods was stored at the depot at all times. Supplies were brought from California by ocean vessels traveling around the Baja Peninsula to Port Isabel near the mouth of the Colorado River. There, cargos were transferred to river steamers and brought upstream to Yuma."

Yuma AZ (1870 pop. about 1150; 1880 pop. about 1,200) is on the CA border in the SW corner of AZ, and about 20 miles N of the Mexican border.
