The first game with any sort of meaningful write up occurred on April 26, 1918. Maryville won, as they would consistently do in future meetings.
What did the teams look like back then? Glad you asked.

The teams take to the field in Maryville tonight at 6pm, 104 years since they first met. The equipment and the names have changed, but it is still baseball.
