La Grange States Rights Democrat, May 8, 1868 reports Waco has a BBC.

The website Early Texas Baseball says that in 1872 a team from New Orleans played teams in Dallas, Waco and Austin. I’ve not been able to verify this. The first contemporary account I found was the Galveston Tri-Weekly News, June 6, 1873, saying the “boys of Waco and Belton” will have a match game of base ball at Waco on the 16th.

The Waco Daily Examiner, March 19, 1874 mentions the Modoc BBC of that city, Same Feb. 11, 1874 says the club practiced at "the green just beyond 8th street, and back of the university..." (presumably Baylor U.).

Waco is about 90 miles SW of Dallas.
