    Pro baseball was slow in coming to Nevada, but the first organized game dates back to 1869 when Carson City bested Virginia City, 81–31. By the early 20th century many Nevada towns and fraternities had organized teams. The copper companies sponsored baseball nines and built diamonds in places like Ruth, Cooper Flat, Ely and McGill; the Northern Nevada Railroad also fielded a team.
