  • Is there any register of baseball activity during the Mexican War in soldier camps?

    Hi:

    Im researching about the first beaseball game on Mexican soil.
    And Im a little bit suspicious about the Mexican War being the scenario for the first baseball game as long as there are are baseball registers in Texas in that period.
