From Protoball Entry #1860.41 – Base Ball Tourney in California

In October, three teams – Sacramento, Stockton, and the Live Oak – played games in Stockton, with Sacramento winning the $50 prize ball, beating Stockton 48-11 and then pasting Live Oak 78-7. New York Clipper (dates omitted in scrapbook clips; the second is annotated "Oct" in hand). Provided from the Mears Collection scrapbooks by Craig Waff, September 2008.

(New York Clipper: “Our national game has, we are glad to find, its enthusiastic followers as well, in the Golden as the Empire State, and, we doubt not, some as skillful players.  It is not surprising, therefore, that a wholesome emulation should exist, and a liberal rivalry manifest itself between the leading clubs, so much so as to create the desire to know which is the champion club.  To this end a tournament has taken place between the three acknowledged first, namely, the Stockton, Sacramento, and Live Oak.”
