Found by David Block

From Protoball Entry #1860.59 – Game Set for CA Mining Town

Two base ball clubs were scheduled to play a game in Mariposa, a southern Sierra gold mining town.

California Spirit of the Times, February 11, 1860. Submitted by Angus Macfarlane, email of February 9, 2010, based on a find made by David Block. Angus notes that neither the California Spirit nor other accessible papers reported on the actual game, if any: "another 'did they or didn't they' mystery." Mariposa CA is on the edge of Yosemite Park and about 60 miles N of Fresno.
