The Jacksonville "New South" Aug. 5, 1874: headline "Base Ball at Lake City". Some members of the R. E. Lee BBC of Jacksonville are going to Lake City to watch a game between the DeSoto's and the Garden City's.

The latter appear to be a Tallahassee team.

Same issue has the Fat Men's BBC of Lake City challenging the "Fats" of Jacksonville Same, Aug. 12, 1874: "A state base ball organization was formed in Lake City last week."

Lake City FL (current pop. about 12, 500) is about 60 miles W of Jacksonville.
