The Morning Stars in 1861

A match of Base Ball came off yesterday afternoon, at the West end of the Fair Grounds, between the Morning Star and the Tiger clubs, which resulted in favor of the former.  The score stood 20 to 6.
-Missouri Republican, July 16, 1861

I believe that this is the first source that shows the Morning Stars playing a game after the Civil War had broken out.
